In September 2020, Apple set the record for a one-day drop in market value. The company lost around USD 182 billion amid a broad tech selloff.

In a report by The Washington Post, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said competitors like TikTok have drawn off users. 

People have a lot of choices for how they want to spend their time, and apps like TikTok are growing very quickly, Zuckerberg said.
