  • Apple's R&D Spending Hits New All Time Highs

    It's a headline we've run before. It's a headline we must run now. And it's a headline we will likely run again in the future.

    Apple continues to pour copious amounts of cash into research and development, a reality that makes investors optimistic and consumers excited about what's to come.

    On the heels of Apple's latest quarterly earnings report, we can now confirm that Apple's investment in research and development has, in fact, never been bigger. During the first three months of 2015, Apple confirms that it spent a staggering $1.92 billion on R&D. If you're keeping score at home, that's a 35% bump-up just in the past year.

    Apple CFO Luca Maestri says the spending increase is directly related to the broadening range of products the company now produces and that Apple is in charge in developing more "core foundational technologies in-house" than ever before.

    Despite all the talk of Apple's research and development into processors and other non-sexy components for current products, one can only imagine how much of this cash is being directed toward potentially new products that we could see in the coming years. And that's where the real excitement dwells within these numbers.
