There must be a sense of defeat permeating through Cupertino this week, nevermind this season. Even as we’ve seen the headwinds blow against Apple, it didn’t seem possible that this corporation on a rocket to the moon could be stopped from constant growth. Well, perhaps it needs a break this winter. Or maybe it’ll break down? Is this losing quarter just a sign of that the innovation engine is sputtering at the spaceship?

We take on that discussion plus a tonnage of leaks from Nokia, Xiaomi, Samsung and the best and worst trends to happen to a smartphone in 2019! Isa Rodruiguez of GadgetMatch joins us for this episode of the Pocketnow Weekly!
