Williams said he felt great about the economy in the long run, citing Apple’s recent launch of three new products.
“I’m optimistic. If you look around, you see the resilience of the people working in this challenging time, and when I look at Apple, I couldn’t be more encouraged. During the past quarter, although these are challenging times, we have three launched new products and I think the economy is great in the long run. It’s just about getting from here to there. “
Williams also reiterated statements made by Apple CEO Tim Cook during Apple’s recent call for profit in the Apple supply chain. Williams said Apple had addressed the supply chain issues, but did not comment on whether products could be delayed. “Our supply chains are largely busy,” he said. “People keep working.”
There were rumors that some of the 2020 iPhone models could hit the market later than expected, much like the separation between the iPhone XS and XR in 2018. “I couldn’t be prouder if the team found new ways to do it Getting work done. ” “he said.” People were very resourceful and we are moving the ball forward. “
Williams said Apple plans to open more retail stores in the coming weeks. Apple has already reopened one store in South Korea, one store in Austria and 21 of its stores in Australia. “We’re bullish in the long run,” said Williams.
