Podcast: Apple's iPhone 11 & TV+ Debut – the Telco Angle

We take a service provider lens to Apple's big announcement of the iPhone 11, Apple TV+ and more, on this edition of the Light Reading podcast, featuring editors Jeff Baumgartner, Mike Dano and me, Mitch Wagner.

Will the iPhone 11 be a big business opportunity for carriers? Will Apple TV+ be able to compete in a crowded OTT market?

As part of our discussion, Mike talks about how Apple products are still changing the telco ecosystem, with increased demand for upstream bandwidth -- to upload all those beautiful videos and photos -- as well as connectivity for the emerging category of wearable devices.
