Apple's annual shareholders meeting is set to take place on February 23, 2021 at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time, Apple said today in an SEC filing. Shareholders meetings are normally held in person at Apple Park, but this year's meeting will take place virtually and will be open to a greater number of shareholders because there are no space restrictions.

Those who want to attend, vote, and submit questions during the annual meeting can visit the shareholders website and enter a 16-digit code included in the Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials provided to shareholders. Apple says that online access will open approximately 15 minutes before the start of the meeting, but questions can be submitted in advance through February 22 at 8:59 p.m. Pacific Time.

Apple says that even those who are attending the meeting should vote in advance online, by mail, or by phone. Items of business will include re-electing the Board of Directors, ratifying Ernst & Young LLP as Apple's public accounting firm, and voting on shareholder proposals.

Shareholder meetings are not typically interesting to the general public because Apple executives don't often share details about Apple products, but in the past, there have been limited comments on Apple services and software.

I've always worked the television part of then shareholders meeting for the 2 major corporations....and they are boring af! It is all straight business. Take a vote for keeping one or two members of the board, announce new members of the board. count the vote in yea or nay made by shareholders to changes the corporation wants to make. Then when they are done live in person, take questions from shareholders that attend.....listen to them complain that the dividends they received are not as good as they wanted/expected, etc. then it's over...go home.

Shareholder meetings suck though, if it's not in person. Normally they'll hide the good stuff from the average investor, and lean more on the hedge fund managers. Yes, I know - it's all about leaks. At least the hedge funds can be sued for good value if that info ever made it to the press.

... but questions can be submitted in advance through February 22 at 8:59 p.m. Pacific Time.

1.) though = up until (I had to think about the original wording for a minute OR two) ... my take, we can submit Questions anytime, up until that Deadline, including today, if so desired.

2.) will send off my Questions just-before the Deadline.

I want to know how they plan to Fix the existing App Store, including the App Store app's Today tab, which is obsessed with Game Apps & Apple Arcade !

Specifically, what is Apple's strategy for getting Adults to return to the App Store ?

It can't ALL be about the Young & the Dumb !

No fun without the entertainment section: the shareholder motions, where some left or right-wing nut case, an activist organization of some sort, and maybe Jesse Jackson or other minority shareholder, would ask for the mic and get their 3 minutes of random grandstanding.

Bro what? Arguably it's thanks to websites like MR that the info playing field is level. We get sneak peeks at all the analyst notes, etc. In addition, none of the info in the reports is really material enough to create massive movements in the SP
