This is Steve Sande for Apple World Today, and you’re listening to the AWT News Update for May 2nd, 2017.

Today Apple announced its earnings for the second fiscal quarter of 2017 ending April 1, 2017. The news was mixed; although Apple’s revenues were up over last year’s, showing continued growth, there are several factors like flat iPhone sales and declining iPad sales that threw a bit of shadow onto the earnings. Rather than go through a repeat of what has been said on the website, I’m inviting all of our listeners to watch the rerun of our Facebook Live event this afternoon.

To watch it, please visit our Apple World Today Facebook page at https://facebook.com/AWToday/ . The video will be near the top of the Facebook page for the next several days, after which we’ll take it down.

That’s all for today; I’ll be back tomorrow afternoon with another edition of the AWT News Update.
