Unlike other sectors of the economy, technology companies benefited immensely from the need for social isolation because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

With a greater number of people in the home office , investments in updates and purchase of notebooks and smartphones were necessary.

As a result, Apple's revenue grew more than 30%, reaching US$365.8 billion in 2021, a situation that boosted stocks, surpassing US$3 trillion in market value.
