Apple's annual shareholders meeting is set to take place Friday, March 10 at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time, according to an SEC filing released today.

Those who want to attend, vote, and submit questions during the annual meeting can visit the virtual meeting website and enter a control number included in the Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials provided to shareholders. Apple states online access will open approximately 15 minutes before the start of the meeting, but questions can be submitted in advance through Thursday, March 9 at 8:59 p.m. Pacific Time. Voting is open to shareholders of record at the close of business on January 9, 2023.

Items of business will include voting to re-elect the Board of Directors, ratifying Ernst & Young LLP as Apple's public accounting firm, approving executive compensation, voting on shareholder proposals, and more.

Apple's shareholders meetings are typically not very interesting to the public, as the company's executives often give vague answers and avoid discussing future products. However, the meetings can occasionally reveal a few interesting tidbits. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the meetings were held in person at Steve Jobs Theater.

I was wondering about this. Yeah, as a genuine question, was going to ask why the rest of us would care.

Let's all pat each other on the back and speak about how we're making good money and the products are great and we don't need to do anything new.

Shareholders will love this. Innovation is expensive so by not innovating Tim is saving tonnes of money while the Apple customers keep buying the products anyway. He actually deserves more credit.
As a shareholder, I am grateful for Tim's ability to sell the same product for 5 years in a row. Once he builds up enough courage to keep the same generation chip for multiple years Apple will become unstoppable.

Again, another disappointment with no in person meeting. I'll wait for another year.

See my post above.
Those are crazy numbers! I wonder what they actually researched: How to make a new iPhone from old parts? How to create software features that make people believe they're only possible via new hardware? How to make a vapourware Qi charger disappear from public records? That's about all I've seen come of that money.

I would have thought you could do better than that. Though I expect that's intentionally agenda driven.

OK, you win. Apple wasted $26 Billion doing nothing. No advanced future chip development, no AR device R&D and AR apps development, no software updates for current and future MacOS and iOS releases, no new app development, no novel algorithm development for a variety of applications, nothing invested on Apple's car, no development for upcoming HomePods, and no other advanced R&D for future/upcoming devices in the works.


"That's about all I've seen come of that money."

You may not be aware that tech companies generally do not publicize future/upcoming/unreleased products for competitive reasons, and, that such product developments are funded with R&D dollars.
