This news is contrary to what Apple announced previously, i.e. Apple launching a video Subscription product in 2018 to counter Netflix.

 

While telling about the Acquisition, Suva and Merchant said that:

 “The firm has too much cash – nearly $250 billion (roughly Rs. 15.9 lakh crores) – growing at $50 billion (roughly Rs. 3.18 lakh crores) a year. This is a good problem to have

Apple will be able to repatriate about $US220 billion in cash to the US under the Trump tax cut

They further added that:

Historically, Apple has avoided repatriating cash to the US to avoid high taxation. As such, tax reform may allow Apple to put this cash to use. With over 90 percent of its cash sitting overseas, a one-time 10 percent repatriation tax would give Apple $220 billion (roughly Rs. 14 lakh crores) for mergers and acquisitions (M&A) or buybacks
