Commissioned by Apple. Low-light images captured before and after #Nightmode on the #iPhone11Pro #ShotoniPhone by… – 1. Geordie W. @geordiewood "Night mode mimics how the human eye would see in the dark, much better than a traditional still camera." – 2. Jason N. @Jason_nocito_studio "The fact you can shoot in almost complete darkness and get great portraits is really surprising." – 3. Laura J. C. @laurajanecoulson "Color saturation was great. Teamed with the Wide camera, the cinematic images you can create are truly amazing."

The spirit behind all Apple products
Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains. —Steve Jobs pic.twitter.com/xQWpDcABuz

number 2 of the most expensive companies
Apple is still in the top 10, currently it is the 2nd most expensive company in the world.
Since the beginning of the year there is a new number one in the list. The state-owned oil company Saudi Aramco has directly set two records with its IPO on December 11, 2019. The IPO (Initial Public Offering; the first public offering of shares on the stock exchange) was the largest ever worldwide. At the same time Saudi Aramco became the most valuable company with a market value of 1.7 trillion dollars. By comparison, the market value of the American digital corporation Apple is 1186 billion dollars (source: FAZ).
However, since Saudi Aramco is not traded on Wall Street, but only on the Saudi stock exchange (with limited market access), it is not listed.
Da Saudi Aramco aber nicht an der Wallstreet gehandelt wird, sondern nur an der saudischen Börse (mit beschränktem Marktzugang), wird es nicht mit aufgelistet.
