Description: Apple has typically not made large acquisitions. Its largest-ever deal, buying headphone maker Beats for $3 billion in 2014, pales in comparison to Google (GOOGL, +0.67%) paying $12.5 billion for Motorola or Microsoft’s (MSFT, -0.11%) $26 billion LinkedIn purchase (though there were unconfirmed reports Apple wanted to buy Time Warner in 2016).
