business needs feedback loops. (Newman 2016)” Specifically, Apple will utilize both sales and software feedback loops. Sales feedback loops are focused on financial performance and market share of the Apple 5G Wi-Fi System. One the product is available for purchase,

Apple will closely watch several different sales avenues in order to determine sales numbers. Additionally, Apple will consider where the product was purchased. Quarterly sales will be compared against each other in order to determine growth and identify any defining factors for increases or decreases in sales. Apple will also analyze sales numbers from competitor products in order to determine company market share. Apple then will either continue utilizing the initial strategy or make improvements after analyzing the feedback data. Software feedback loops are more simplistic, despite the software being extremely complex. Once the Apple 5G is on the market, issues may arise. Apple will encourage Apple 5G Wi-Fi System users to opt into the error submission process. This process allows the user to be an important component of the process without any additional work on their part. Once error reports arrive to the company, it is reviewed by the software team. The software team then conducts research on prior issues in order to determine if similar issue has been identified and solved previously by a different team. After creating a solution, Apple then pushes out a patch of 5G Wireless, which is automatically downloaded and installed by the user. In this way, a hands-free improvement process is maintained for the user in order to deliver a premium customer experience. c. Other Factors In order to finalize the strategic plan for the Apple 5G Wi-Fi System, Apple must look to the future in order to consider other factors that might affect the product. For example, Apple must consider the rate of development and integration of the 5G Wireless infrastructure across the United States and the rest of the world. If installation of 5G Wireless is quick, then Apple might see

significant sales growth. However, if it takes a long time to develop infrastructure, then sales numbers will be lower but will progressively increase. Additionally, Apple must consider the extinction and retirement of older technology. As 5G Wireless develops, it is possible that landline connections might completely die out for businesses and individuals. Since 5G Wireless boast speeds up to 100 times faster than 4G, it is not outside the realm of possibility that wired connections might completely become outdated. It is also possible that Wi- Fi might become obsolete. If Verizon and AT&T are able to better broadcast 5G across the country and the planet, then it is possible that Wi-Fi might become a thing of the past. However, since telecom companies have discovered how to broadcast 5G into and around tall buildings, it is remarkably unlikely that Apple will face these potential threats towards the Apple 5G Wi-Fi system product in the near future.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
