The Ministry of communications is considering a bill on domestic preinstalling apps on smartphones and tablets, which are sold in Russia. The Agency has already announced similar plans, and I believe that the bill will not be able to spend this time.

Third, it reduces competition and increases corruption, because officials will decide which software will be pre-installed on phones.

The cost of this gadget is around $70. This price is higher than similar devices from competitors, but from OneDrop more attractive design and is integrated into the Health App. In the world more than 430 million diabetics, of which 44 million live in the United States, therefore, the device will be in demand. Sale OneDrop raise revenue Apple at $70-80 million in fiscal 2019. The accessory market to 2018 reached $17.4 billion and that the background contribution is negligible OneDrop. However, Apple can expect $9 billion in revenue cumulatively over the next three years.

The target price on Apple to the end of the second quarter 2019 — $226.
