We're just one month into 2016 and Apple (AAPL 2.14%) has already made big news. The company filed paperwork this month seeking approval to open retail and online stores in India, which will soon become the world's second largest smartphone market. We also found out that the company's App Store hit record sales of $1.1 billion over the two-week span covering Christmas and New Years. 

We learned this month that Apple was the only top-five PC vendor to increase shipments in 2015, and that the Apple Watch accounted for more than half of smartwatch shipments last year. But not everything went well for Apple this month. The company is allegedly putting a hiring freeze on its electric car project, codenamed Titan, after a review of the program didn't over well with Apple's chief designer, Jony Ive.
