Trump's WeChat ban could significantly hurt Apple's iPhone sales, says one of the most reliable Apple analysts (AAPL)

President Trump's executive order could have a significant impact on iPhone shipments if Apple is required to remove WeChat from the App Store, says analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. iPhone shipments could decline by up to 30%, although the reports do not make it explicitly clear whether this refers to shipments specifically in China or globally. A best case scenario for Apple would only see WeChat removed from the US App Store, not the global App Store, says Kuo. iPhone shipments would only see a decline...

Apple refuses to allow major gaming apps from Microsoft, Google, and Facebook onto the App Store, and the fight just went public (FB, GOOGL, AAPL, MSFT)

Apple refuses to allow major gaming apps from Microsoft, Google, and Facebook onto the iPhone and iPad App Store.
