With record third-quarter earnings, Apple has so far managed to weather the storm in a year that will go down in history as a nightmare for many tech companies. Lower-than-anticipated iPhone sales, however, give rise to the possibility that the ship may have gaps that need to be filled.

A record $90.1 billion in quarterly revenues, up 8% from the same period last year, were disclosed by the Silicon Valley goliath on Thursday. In addition, Apple’s net income of $20.7 billion broke the quarter’s previous high for the business.

All of that may seem great, but there are some rather alarming signs involving the iPhone, Apple’s main source of revenue. This quarter, the company’s iPhone sales increased by 9.7% to $42.6 billion. The Wall Street Journal claims that this is considerably

one month after a Bloomberg report said Apple had cancelled earlier plans to increase production of its new iPhone 14 models due to sluggish demand.

Apple also reported record quarters in a number of other categories at the same time, including record Mac computer performance. Apple steadfastly declined to provide sales projections or predictions for the whole year, although it did state that revenue growth will pick up in the next quarter.

The Ukraine war, ongoing pandemic disruptions, a weak economy, and climate change are among the “a variety of concerns facing the globe,” according to CEO Tim Cook, who voiced optimism in the company’s overall profitability, which smashed records. Cook continued by saying that the shortages of silicon that have recently plagued several IT companies were “not serious.”

When Snap recently reported its lowest year-over-year revenue gain in 11 years, mostly because of a sluggish digital advertising market, that financial storm cloud started to develop. This week, Google-owned Alphabet reported its second-lowest quarterly growth rate since 2013. And to make matters worse, the company’s revenue growth dropped to 6% from 41% the year before. Much of Google’s issues were attributed to declining digital ad spending, similar to Snap.

With revenues falling for the second quarter in a row, Meta may have made the worst mistake of all. Up until recently, this failure would have been unthinkable for Silicon Valley’s once unbeatable growth engine. $27.7 billion in revenue is a 4% decrease from the same time last year. The company’s shares dropped as a result of its poor performance, according to The Wall Street Journal, giving it a market value of less than $300 billion for the first time since early 2016. On the company’s earnings call, CEO Mark Zuckerberg expressed concern about much poorer performance in the coming months due to “huge modifications across the board to function more effectively.”

In order to convince viewers to buy Meta’s shares, television expert and professional screamer Jim Cramer had to hold back tears on live television. Cramer frequently acknowledged that he misplaced his faith in Meta’s leadership group. Cramer said, “I screwed up.
