The 'clock has struck midnight' for Apple: it needs to buy a major Hollywood studio this year or lose the streaming war to Netflix and Amazon (AAPL, DIS, NFLX, AMZN)

Don't expect Apple's iPhone sales to get better anytime soon, says analyst (AAPL)

Apple's struggles selling iPhones likely didn't end with last quarter, UBS analyst Timothy Arcuri said. Instead, the company will likely continue to see depressed smartphone sales for the rest of this fiscal year and on into fiscal 2020, Arcuri said. A major update to the iPhone line in fall 2020 could lead to a rebound, but that prospect is uncertain, he said.
