Bloomberg news agency, having analyzed the results of Apple's financial report for the third quarter, assessed the market situation and came to the conclusion: rumors and speculation about the iPhone 5 negatively affect the pace of sales of Apple devices. So, according to the agency, Apple could have made much more in the third quarter of this year, but could not.
The growth rate of sales of Apple smartphones is starting to fall - future buyers are in no hurry to buy the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. The reason for this is the imminent release of the iPhone 5, about which almost any Internet resource is packed full of information. Surprisingly, even such phenomenal iPhone 4S sales, such as those conducted by Radioshack (they have iPhone 4S 16 Gb for $ 99), do not really save the situation. This led to a drop in Apple stock by more than $ 25.
There was a similar decline in sales before the release of the iPhone 4S - people were also waiting for the novelty, due to which sales of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 3 GS began to plummet. At the same time, it also caused unrest on the stock exchange, and the value of Apple shares began to creep down.
According to experts, after the release of the iPhone 5, the company's revenue will rise by no less than 31%, while the company's revenue will increase by 34%.
Tentatively, the iPhone 5 will be announced this fall.
