Apple on Monday announced its earnings call for the fiscal fourth quarter, (third calendar quarter), of 2016 has been moved to 2PM Pacific time, Tuesday, October 25. The company blamed an unnamed scheduling conflict. The event was originally scheduled for October 27.
Apple had also rescheduled their fiscal second quarter 2016 earnings call back in April, delaying it for one day, due to a timing conflict with the funeral services for longtime Apple advisor and board member Bill Campbell. Campbell succumbed to a battle with cancer in mid-April 2016.
