The American business magazine Fast Company presented the ranking of the most innovative companies for 2018. It is noteworthy that Apple took only 17th place in the list, although a year earlier, the corporation held the palm. This time, the rating was led by the Chinese company Meituan Dianping, which combines several services at once: searching for restaurants, booking hotels, ordering food and goods.
In total, the list includes about 50 companies. According to the magazine, the main innovation for Apple in 2018 was the Apple A12 processor – the first chip in the industry, made on a 7-nanometer process. But despite this, the corporation has lost 16 positions in the list.
2017 was more successful for Apple – then the corporation was at the top of the ranking of the most innovative companies in the world. This success was achieved thanks to the timely release of the breakthrough iPhone X and AirPods wireless headphones. True, the corporation was not able to retain its leading position.
