Apple’s New iPhones Arrive, as Glow Fades


Apple’s Latest Versions iPhone – Thinner/Enhanced Water Resistance

As the iPhone tends to mature reaching its 10th year, Apple Inc recently introduced its new versions of its flagship smartphone, though most probably would not be including the important types of new features which the Apple consumers have been expecting each year. The new models are said to be coming at a serious stage, where the iPhone sales seems to be dropping for the first time, consumers have been prolonging in upgrading their phones and Apple tends to face fresh opposition from competitors such as Samsung Electronics Company and Huawei Technologies Company.

According to the report of Wall Street Journal, earlier in the year, it is said that Apple intends to eradicate the 3.5-millimeter headphone jack and would be making the phone thinner, enhancing its water resistance. However critics have criticized the idea.

Moreover, the Journal has also mentioned that Apple intends to bring about more radical changes for the next year’s model, the iPhone’s 10th anniversary. Apple had refrained from commenting on rumours ahead of the announcement of Wednesday. The iPhone has pushed the extraordinary growth of Apple in recent years, making it the most valuable company in the world.

Exploring New Product – Project Titan

In the year ending September 26, 2015, Apple had sold almost six times as many iPhones, as five years earlier and the phone has accounted for almost two-thirds of the revenue of the company. Neil Cybart, an independent Apple analyst has commented saying that the easy growth has begun to disappear.

International Data Corp, the research firm has estimated that iPhone sales would grow only by 1.5% each year between 2015 and 2020. Apple, in reply had intensified the research and development spending that had reached to $8.1 billion in the year ended September 2015, from $2.4 billion in 2011.

The company has been exploring the new product named Project Titan, which is an Apple branded vehicle. In the meanwhile the Apple Watch that could envisage an upgrade at the event seems to be a unsure achievement and Tim Cook, Chief Executive is still on the look-out for another getaway hit to rival the iPhone.

Not Expecting a Radical iPhone Design

The iPhone had been mainly popular in China wherein the sales of Apple had amounted to $58.7 billion ending September 2015. At a July conference call with the financial analysts, Mr Cook had stated that he was encouraged by the prospects of Apple, in China and India.

Considering the surge of Apple in China after the introduction on China Mobile, said to be one of the biggest wireless carriers of the nation, analysts seem to be less confident. Apple watchers and the analysts are not expecting a radical iPhone redesign this week, which would be breaking the tradition of Apple of offering a significant hardware overhaul after couple of years.

On the contrary they are expecting the device, which is likely to be named iPhone 7, to resemble the iPhone 6, which had been introduced in 2014. The screen size would probably be 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches. People familiar with the matter have stated that Apple could eradicate the home button of the home and add a fingerprint reader into the screen and also change the display of the phone to an edge-to-edge organic light emitting diode screen.
