Why reports of slowing iPhone X sales may be completely off base

It couldn't have come at a worse time. Chinese brands such as Huawei, Oppo and Xiaomi are also fighting for customers in China and other emerging markets, Bloomberg reports.

One of the charges in San Francisco stated that the batteries' failure to cope with the demand created by processor speeds without the software patch was a defect, adding that instead of offering free battery replacement for all affected iPhones, Apple chose to conceal the battery problem.

Unlike what Consumer Reports claims, to me at least, the iPhone X's battery life is more than adequate even for day-long trips of active business usage for internet browsing and email.

Other statistics include Apple growing its earnings per share 11% with it buyback efforts and AAPL shares saw 50% growth for the year.

Molly Couts, Josie Robinson and Taylor Wilkes own old iPhone 6 models that have slowed down with age.

Apple's public acknowledgment of intentionally slowing down older iPhones is backfiring at the company. Batteries in old iPhones can be updated with a new battery for $80.

Despite the premium price and reported production issues, Apple had record pre-sales of the iPhone X. Three times as many orders were placed for the iPhone X compared to the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, according to Slice Intelligence.

Daniel Ives, an analyst with GBH Insights, says Apple's initial statement isn't enough.

The iPhone X shares parts with the iPhone 8, and the latest report of Asian suppliers cutting production likely has more to do with the earlier model, said Jun Zhang, an analyst at Rosenblatt Securities. RSI for instance is currently at 62.51.

A number of analysts have recently weighed in on the company.

Apple, he adds, "need to give owners some comfort".

Apple Inc. has a 1-year low of $114.76 and a 1-year high of $177.20. The Cupertino, Calif.,-based company is facing new challenges from Samsung Electronics Co., which is quickly recovering from the Galaxy Note 7's recall after fires. Apple accounts for approximately 0.8% of HighVista Strategies LLC's investment portfolio, making the stock its 22nd biggest position. Royal Bank of Canada raised their price objective on Apple from $176.00 to $180.00 and gave the company an "outperform" rating in a research note on Friday, September 1st.

Epoch's Pearl reckons Apple could get a mid-single digit boost to ongoing earnings from the lower tax rate, and as much as a 7% increase from bringing home cash and buying back stock.
It's a perfectly good mobile device. It's a really crummy move because your new phone is $1,000.

A statistical measure of the dispersion of returns (volatility) for AMZN producing salvation in Investors mouth, it has week volatility of 1.04% and for the month booked as 1.71%. Now you're being bitten by lawsuits.

Shares in Apple Inc and several of its Asian suppliers fell on Tuesday after a report by Taiwan's Economic Daily and comments from some analysts suggested iPhone X demand could come in below expectations in the first quarter. Yesterday's sell-off could turn out to be a "buy the rumor, sell the fact" trade - or rather "sell the rumor, buy the fact" in this case - with investors merely finding a 'convenient' excuse to book some end-of-year profits from the stock's incredible run this past year; Apple's stock price is up by 47.3% year-to-date as of Tuesday's close. However, neither phones have removable batteries.

For consumers, "this just doesn't make sense", he says.
