Who holds the first place as the most innovative company?
According to Fast Company, while Apple would remain in fourth place, Amazon would be the most innovative company , followed by Google, and by Uber in third position.
In the fifth place we would have Snap, the developer company of Snapchat, which recently reached a value of more than 3,000 million dollars.
Last year Fast Company left Apple in seventh place, something that will surprise many users who think Apple has stopped innovating with its latest product launches.
Fast Company admits that Apple is no longer as creative as it was years ago, but explains that creativity lies in deeper layers of a company's performance. One of the reasons they have listed Apple as the fourth most innovative company in the world is by their efforts to improve the internal hardware of their devices when making their own chips .
"APPLE, ON THE CONTRARY, DESIGNS ITS OWN CHIPS - SO AN IPHONE HAS A PROCESSOR SPECIALLY DESIGNED TO OPTIMIZE APPLE'S MOBILE OPERATING SYSTEM, APPLICATIONS, DISPLAY, CAMERA AND TOUCH SENSOR.
The company has been so good at designing the iPhone 7's A10 Fusion chip that has outperformed its benchmark rivals. "
It is true that although Apple has disappointed in the design of their devices, every year continues to improve their hardware and software. What do you think, has left Apple to innovate?
