The show starts with a few followup stories, one notable number, a few legal stories, one acquisitions, and a quick overview of news related to Apple’s original content. The four main stories are round 2 of the Apple -v- US DOJ back-door battle, iCloud encryption, Apple’s Q1 2020 earnings, and two trade wars & a virus. The show ends with a quick rundown of some smaller Apple-related stories that made the news in January.
