I just subscribed. What is my Above Avalon username/password?

Above Avalon subscriptions are unique in that no username or password is required to receive new daily updates after signup. Instead, the updates will be sent directly to your email inbox as they are published. 

What are Daily Updates?

Daily updates are emails available exclusively to Above Avalon subscribers. They are published at 7 a.m. ET Monday through Thursday. These emails represent the cornerstone of Above Avalon subscriptions. Each email is about 2,000 words and includes my analysis and perspective on the most important stories and news impacting Apple. 

Daily updates revolve around the following topics:

  • Apple business and strategy analysis.
  • My Apple earnings and financial estimates.
  • My perspective and observations on current news, Apple competitors, and keynotes/events.

How do I read previous daily updates?

Can I read the daily updates in a web browser?

Yes. Each email contains a link at the top that allows it to be viewed in a browser.

Is there a way to receive a week's worth of daily updates in one consolidated email?

If you prefer receiving one consolidated email every Saturday instead of daily emails, go here for more information on receiving the special weekly email (different subscription pricing applies). 

What is the Above Avalon subscriber forum?

How can I update my payment information after signup?

How can I have my team or company receive the daily updates? 

Above Avalon subscriptions are intended for a single user. In order to have your team or company (five or more people) receive the daily updates and access the archive and subscriber forum, please contact me directly. A specialized subscription will be made for your team. Group (five or more people) subscription pricing is available. 

Can I gift an Above Avalon subscription to someone? 

Yes. To gift a monthly or annual subscription, simply go through the signup process using your name and email address.
