Well I was I an iPhone fan I have a 4&4s but expected a lot more from the iPhone 5 and was disappointed with meager offering and I am fed up with iTunes being so restrictive and ripping you off on tracks and movies in the UK,also I would like a proper Bluetooth or way to beam files to my mates,iPhone 5 no thanks galaxy note 2 lte yes please :-) also many others are like me,200 new features in IOS6 ??? Where exactly ?? Oh yes the removal of google maps big up yourself apple!!! They have ruined Steve jobs last project and legacy and let's not forget the scratching and dents in the new iPhones and ba battery life again,sorry apple won't be coming back until you make a phone that's truly inspiring and grabs my attention !!!
with so many people hating Apple and they still can get so much profits, Well Done Apple! :)
Aa, 26 Oct 2012What fanboys? Android? All i see are apple hate comments.i love haters...

Last time anyone checked, companies with massive current ratios don't go bust overnight. Do some research on the dotcom and "property thing" and you will see that they are very different from Apple stock. Just out of curiousity, what do you consider reliable sources of information? I'm guessing one of the criteria is that they have to help with your confirmation bias.
someone still want to buy iphone 5??? spend money for caritas it is better choice !
i got the iphone 5. it's solid and all but i cannot believe how easy it scratches. The battery lasts half a day. and it costed me $700 cdn for a 16gb version. I need a laptop but i cannot afford a macbook which is 1699 for a 13 inch. I aint stupid. NO more apple. Iphone 5 will be the last for me.
Shortages are causing sales to slip? I don't think so. Of all the iphones, the iphone 5 is the worst iphone in terms of quality then you have the ios 6 issues on top of it. You can be sure a 5s is just around the corner and most the public knows that.
There are still a few of us customers who demand a quality product which will last longer than when the next product upgrade is released.
PS Apple - Ditch your custom dock connector for micro-usb or firewire ASAP.

and wise advisers like you will be nowhere!!!!
Its a fact that apple sales figures are never genuin thats why this company never paid dividend to its share holders.
massive wholesellers got hit in the neck with unsold quantities of heavily subsidized iphone4 and 4s.
its sales figures will only improve if they successfully sold 4 and 4s in developing countries for real price of around 200.
apple will pay the rest of lossto these wholesellers. that will result in empty accounts despite "WORLD RECORD" sales and in the end share holders will get nothing as always.
in a year or 2 this story will come out through RELIABLE sources and than APPLE BUBBLE will burst just like .com and property.

Next Q say how well iPhone 5 is selling and if you read news its selling very very well, its top of almost every selling list.
Plus an extra 1 billion from Samsung. Seriously, Sammys profits must include the parts made for Apple. There's some dumb comments on here. iPhone sales will be down in Q3 as people were waiting for new iPhone. IPhone was released at the end of Q3.
