Sarath John, 27 Apr 2016To all the ignorant ones who are saying that this is the end of Apple; this is just a temporar... moreWe've got ourselves a prophet of doom. Son, you really are referring to Android and trying to pitch it against Apple? You've doomed your own argument really fast. Recent market share numbers show 61% on Android and 31% Apple (which over the last year Android took 10% off of Apple shares, and is still increasing). I don't think iPhone 7 will make much difference, if they will keep doing what they're doing now.
Apple going to focus on India!!! This is how Nokia started its descend!!! In India, the mobile industry is pretty much open, contract free and very cost competitive. You can't tie down consumers with 2 years contract with $50-$100 monthly subscriptions and give them 2 years upgrade cycle. iPhone SE itself will find competition from its own bigger cousins in the second-hand sale!!! People will go after 128 GB iPhone 6 Plus in used market than paying for a miniature version for the same price....

And pure android doesnt have all the features, especially enterprise features that iOS has (byod environment tools).
Also Apple customer support is light years ahead of any other OEM.
The experience of owning an Apple device is just better than any Android device and thats why iphone's sell.
Chill people every company have bad time. Even samsung had untill they pushed in something new like curved screen. Yes S7 edge was a great success. But will it be same next year ? After 2 years people tend to get bored or get used to it and want something new to flaunt off. People asking for new design what new design you guys want ? round shaped phone ? triangle shaped phone ? everytime i see people whining about phone shape and design. i seriously dont understand. and also why to change a design which is already at its best.
Yep 6 and 6s dont look that classy compaired to 5 and 5s. still its something new and dont need casing. atleast not for me and i also know many who are not using case for their 6s.
and dont forget if iOS dies then android will also stop to evolve as their will be no competition.
Same goes with Intel vs Amd. Intel is so far ahead of amd they are also not evolving.
and this people who are running the company know what they are doing. they are not running some road side store. they r running multi billion dollar company. i dont think anyone over here must have handled even 2% of that.
So just chill and enjoy the benefits.
Nishru, 27 Apr 2016You're clearly a Samsung fanboi. That shows for a mile. But look at the Samsung business model... moreWell yes Samsung smarthphones sales can fall, but Samsung is very big company with multiple products(TVs,phones,...) so they can recover,but Apple is also big but their main sales are iphones so Apple would be hit harder
Linas, 27 Apr 2016Same.... I cannot understand how on earth they selling something at all. It seems all illogica... moreI've seen it first hand. There's still a lot of people, who believe what Apple tells them. That iPhone = premium and quality. And they just refuse to admit, that other companies stepped up their game, and offer the same for less money.
BE PRACTICAL, 27 Apr 2016In every age of mobile some manufacturer rise to rule the market. But when industry enter new ... moreYou're clearly a Samsung fanboi. That shows for a mile. But look at the Samsung business model, compare it to Apple, they are very similar, which means, Samsung can be next.

I own a Moto G3 and have been prasing Android for long. So I thought, why not praise Apple this time for a change!! At least, they are having a down time!! :D
just my opinion , 27 Apr 2016if apple make some affordable budget iphones than this wont have happened Apple and "affordable/budget" don't go together in the same sentence.

Even if they continue to be somehow profitable, probably by some kind of manipulation to keep stock prices up. As this company is very manipulative!
To all the ignorant ones who are saying that this is the end of Apple; this is just a temporary decline for Apple due the saturation of smartphone sales and release of flagships of other companies. Once the iPhone 7 is released, all the mouths of these Apple Haters will be shut. Apple will come back with might and Android will be smashed under the mightiness of Apple!!! Be prepared to face the worst from Apple!! People will flock to Apple's new iPhone praising it!!
Apple is not a underdog any more. yeah they had their time but Samsung and other major phones company are on the league now. Apple got to bring the price down on their phones to bring in more cmr Or make more different models and affordabel for all kinds of consumer
Anonymous, 27 Apr 2016Yeah 51 million phones sold is a flop. Youre so clever. 51 billion is numbers of total Iphone sales.4s,5s,6,6+,6s and 6s+.Just think abt it Bro.
COME ON APPLE ITS TIME TO WAKE UP! ITS 2016 MAKE SOME INNOVATIONS,LOWER THE PRICES OF YOUR PRODUCT. Maybe its time to listen to your customers before its too late. My relatives in US who had been using Apple products since Iphone 3 upto iphone 6s are already migrating to Andriod (s7) because your greediness(like overprice IPHONES), AND DON'T GIVE US RECYCLED PHONE and a 16GB OF MEMORY.Think twice, it might be your end.
