Apple’s market cap falls under $2 trillion as sell-off continues (2 min read)

Apple shares fell another 3.74% on Tuesday to a 52-week low, bringing its market cap below $2 trillion for the first time since 2020.

Investors are also concerned that rising rates and declining consumer confidence will impact the demand for Apple’s products.
