The show starts with the usual followups and updates on long-running stories. That’s followed by one notable number, some some Apple-related legal news, a little Apple HR & acquisitions news, and some highlights from Apple’s services. The three main stories are the EU Digital Markets Act (DMA), a great night for Apple at the Oscars, and Apple’s ‘Peek Performance’ event. The show ends with a quick rundown of some smaller Apple-related stories that made the news in March.
