2013 Best Companies: Who's Up And Who's Down


Apple

CEO: Tim Cook

Apple is No. 17 on this year's Best Companies To Partner With list, down five spots from No. 12 last year.

The biggest news on the Apple front this year was the launch of the next generations of the vendor's key products, the iPhone 5C and 5S and the iPad Air.

Apple is facing increased competition from Android-based devices. But the consensus among partners at the Apple Worldwide Developer Conference in June was that the company still had its A-game going. Partners also see iOS 7, the new release of Apple's mobile operating system, providing more opportunities for expansion into commercial markets.
