a16z Podcast: Apple Has Lock on Luxury Smartphones, But Not Business of TV


Apple has once again shown it absolutely dominates the high-end for smartphones, and no other company is likely to knock it from its perch in the near term, says a16z’s Benedict Evans. But does it control the future of TV? Not yet.

Evans breaks down the latest Apple event, filled with iPhones, iPads and Apple TV, in this segment of the a16z Podcast. Why the “3D Touch” Apple is featuring on its 6S phones is something only Apple could have pulled off, and why its latest iPad — the Pro — creeps into the PC market.
