“We’re not inventing the iPhone. We’re not going out there and coming up with a brand new way of doing things. The only thing that’s caused massive shifts in our industry is a thing called a global pandemic. Essentially what’s happening is we’re going back to the growth rates that we’re most accustomed to, which is flat to 1%.”
