Despite extremely aggressive capital returns in the last few years, Apple has only cut the net cash position from $141 billion at the end of FY15 to $102 billion now. The prime reason is that the tech giant generates ~$60 billion in annual free cash flows that contribute substantially to the inability of Apple to reach a cash net neutral position quicker.
