IPhone X blamed for Apple's slow growth in smartphone sales

Apple to buy back $100B in stock insists iPhone X isn’t a flop

This is likely a result of the production process too, not just price.

When Apple reports its latest quarterly earnings on Tuesday, the world's most valuable company is expected to reveal revenues of about $61 billion, after selling an estimated 54 million iPhones in the three months to March.

Which iPhone model are you looking forward to buy this year?

But be rest assured, it's only the entry-level iPhone that will be ditching the 3D Touch feature.

The new iPhone will also include a new "touch film sensor" to the glass. The company is also planning to sell the iPhone X for a lot less money, this year around.

When the X launched previous year, Apple paid handsomely for the new Face ID system, stainless steel casing and sharper, more efficient OLED screen technology.

"Apple will update the iPhone X, but won't kill it". That made it hard to price the product much below $999, without slicing Apple's legendary profitability. To maintain hefty profit margins, the use of LCD panels and aluminum housings are likely instead of the more expensive OLED panels and stainless steel.

Cohen "Represented Me" In Stormy Daniels Payoff
Trump also complained that many other appointees, including judges, are held up in the approval process in Congress. Cohen's under federal criminal investigation in NY for unspecified business dealings.

While the 6.1-inch iPhone will miss out on OLED display and 3D touch, it will still retain the iPhone X bezel-less design and the infamous notch on the top.

This fall Apple is releasing the new generation of smartphones iPhone.

For most companies, one product facing growth headwinds wouldn't be a concern.

As iPhone sales start to plateau, Apple is becoming more reliant on its services and other products to help boost growth.

It will however retain the Touch IDbutton according to recent leaks.

Following corporation tax cuts unveiled by President Donald Trump in February, Apple announced that it would transfer $250 billion of cash stored overseas to the US. Fiscal second-quarter iPhone unit sales are expected to be 51.9 million, up from 50.8 million a year earlier, according to average analyst forecasts compiled by Bloomberg. So if you using iPhone 6 or below models and want to play Augmented Reality games on Your iPhone, this will be a good time to upgrade.
