Apple podría dañar a más de 13 compañías con sus "novedades"

via @cbinsights Apple podría dañar a más de 13 compañías

With big new product announcements ranging from Apple Music to Apple News, Apple’s annual WWDC event had quite a few implications for a host of venture-backed startups. This is not a new occurrence — in fact, there’s even a word for Apple going after existing products in a systems update: sherlocking. These startups, in aggregate, have raised $1.8B and so have a lot riding on the success or failure of Apple’s new announcements.
Here’s a quick cheat sheet on the startups “wounded” by WWDC announcements.
