Apple iPhone 6 Release May Happen Sooner As Apple Stock Fails to Live up to Investors Predictions

Apple has reported that in December 2013 it made a $13 billion profit, which could be largely dedicated to sale of 51 million units of iPhone 5S and 5C. Though Tim Cook believes that it is the best quarterly performance by the Company, Wall Street seems to disagree as the shares of the company decreased immediately after release of the figures. Apparently, the investors are not very sure about California-Cupertino based company’s growth.

Apple iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C did not capture consumer’s fancy as Apple it was expected by Apple and from what it seems Tim Cook has no intention of entering in the mass market with low-end phones. In his various interviews Cook has indicated that Apple only wants to focus on premium segment of phones.

 According to CNET.com Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster believes that Apple has made its stance on the lower-end clear and its current focus is on creating premium products at a premium price point.

This has made the analyst predict that Apple iPhone sales will decrease in 2014 and 2015. Munster further said in his investor note that the reason for Apple plummeting sales is the US market, which has now reached saturation point, as there the major source of sales is upgrades not new purchases.

 

Therefore, if Apple wants to accelerate its growth the only factor, which will work in its favor, is the early releases of iPhone 6 which may help Apple get an edge above its Android counterparts.

 

Recent rumors suggest that Apple will release iPhone 6 in the first quarter of 2014 and it is expected that the just like iPhone 5, iPhone 6 will come in two versions.

Apple iPhone 6 release is just round the corner. Industry experts believes that with the dismissal of Apple iPhone 5S/ 5C, the tech giant will bring some revolutionary features in Apple iPhone 6.

According to highly placed sources at Apple, “iPhone 6 will come with longer battery life, improved camera, wraparound display and sapphire screen.”

It has also been rumored that iPhone 6 will have a 3D sensor technology which will make user interaction a breeze. Apple has recently obtained Prime Sense technology from an Israeli company. The company is the expert in designing sensors that help in user interaction.

Another noteworthy acquisition, which Apple has done, is of company responsible for Xbox Kinect sensor. The acquisition deal cost apple $350 million. It is predicted that since now Apple has hold over such technology, the 3D sensor will be included in the 6th generation iPhone.

 

According to Susquehanna analyst, Chris Caso, “We think Apple could get away with a $50 to $100 premium for a larger screen size iPhone 6. We think such a move could avoid the margin erosion that occurred when the iPhone 5 was launched.”

 

Apple iPhone 6 needs to up its ante if it is willing to beat competition by HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4. Both the phones have a bigger screen size and are endowed with brilliant features. Indeed, Apple phones are packed with some extraordinary features but a big screen won’t hurt either.

Wake Up Call For Apple:Rumors Have It iPhone 6 Won’t Be Able Follow In Footsteps Of Samsung Galaxy S4

Now these phones haven’t yet launched into the market, nor is there any form of confirmation from either Apple or Samsung about these products. But the rumors mills are working overtime speculating about which of these flagship phones will emerge the winner in 2013. From the specs that we’re hearing, we doubt if the iPhone 6 would be able to even come close to what the Galaxy S4 promises to achieve. Why do we think so?

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is rumored to have a 5-inch display with a resolution of 441 ppi. But that’s not all – powered by a quad-core processor and 2 GB of RAM, it could run the new Android Key Lime Pie version too. Additionally, we can expect to see unique features like wireless charging, S-Pen functionality, and capabilities to record videos and click images simultaneously at HD resolution. Now, if these features really will be present in the Galaxy S4, you can see why Apple has an uphill task ahead of it if it wants its new iPhone to stand a chance against Samsung’s flagship. Technical features aside, there are many more reasons why we expect to see less of a response to the iPhone 6 when compared with the Galaxy S4. Here’s why.

Well, to start with, the iPhone 5 received a rather lukewarm response. With a form factor that didn’t differ much from its predecessor, except for the fact that it was lighter and slimmer, the Galaxy S3’s large screen made it a much bigger hit than the iPhone 5. Secondly, in terms of OS, we love the way Android is transforming with every update – we loved the ICS and then Jelly Bean quite literally did take our breath away. On the other hand, iOS is getting kind of monotonous – there isn’t too much of a drastic change since it first came out, and we think we’re not the only ones getting bored of it.

Samsung did end up becoming the world’s largest smartphone maker during 2012, and in all probability, it’ll do everything it can to hold on to this top spot. That’s another reason why we think the Galaxy S4 will also blow our minds away when it finally does launch. Apple’s lost the Steve Jobs charm – what he did, not even Tim Cook can rebuild. Apple over the past couple of years, has failed to launch any groundbreaking innovations, and hence, people don’t seem too eager for the next iPhone.

The youth are identifying more with Android than with Apple and iOS. What the iPhone did a few years ago is what many other companies like Samsung are getting to do with the launch of their flagship devices – there’s more variety in the market and people are loving it. Another reason why Apple’s losing its connect with the youth is its elite price point. Why bother spending $100-$200 extra on an iPhone when you get all of its features and more in a snazzier smartphone?

Is 2013 going to be the year when Apple gets forgotten, or will we see Apple rising again like it has managed to do in the past? Guess we’ll just have to wait for a few more months to find out. Until then, all we can do is get you the latest inside scoop on the Galaxy S4 as soon as we hear something!… Read the rest
