The latest business headlines

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Here’s a look at Monday’s business headlines.

Eli Lilly

Eli Lilly plans to donate at least 200,000 of its insulin pens to three relief organizations through 2022.

The insulin will go to Americares, Direct Relief and Dispensary of Hope. The organizations said they will give the insulin to about 200 free clinics in the U.S. to stock them until 2022.

The insulin is supposed to go to low-income diabetes patients.

Eli Lilly also is donating $2 million to relief agencies to help diabetes patients get medicine, supplies, medical care and insurance coverage.

Tech jobs

Microsoft, Twitter and Walmart want to help you get a job in tech without racking up student loans.

Tech apprenticeships offer a new way for Americans without a college degree or tech background to land a job in the field without going back to school.

These companies are hiring from previously overlooked segments of the workforce, namely those without higher-education degrees or a previous job in technology in order to help address a severe shortage of skilled workers in a fast-growing sector of the U.S. economy.


There’s another leak about new iPhone capability.

9 to 5 Mac says Apple accidentally left code in its newly released iOS 13.4 beta for “Carkey.” That could enable iPhones and Apple Watch owners to user their devices as digital car keys.

The story says this would be a software update so you wouldn’t have to have the iPhone 12.


AT&T is reportedly nearing a deal for a “Friends” reunion special.

The show would give its new streaming service, HBO Max, something big to open with for its spring launch, according to reports.

Each of the show;s six main stars would be paid between $2.25 and $2.5 million to appear in the special and the show would likely be used to launch HBO Max, the company’s new streaming service debuting in May.
