Everyone including Tim Cook knows the iPhone does well in the western world. It's been on top in the US and UK for a long time now. Where growth has been declining for Apple is the Eastern world such as Russia, China, and India. That's why their global share is shrinking. All that to say this issue will be addresses when the iPhone 5C comes out. I'm sure it will be positioned as the iPhone for everyone.
There are some even cheaper than that!
  Yup.   Apple is going completely turn the industry upside-down when the 5C and 5S come.   The 5C will be as good as $600+ Androids for a fraction of the cost.   The 5S will be leaps and bounds better for the same price we've always paid.   Combine that with iOS which consumers are digging more than iOS 6, and we've got a recipe for a record breaking year.
  The iPhone is the only phone that has iOS, so it's a "fair" study.   I believe the IDC had a study comparing manufacturers that came out earlier as well.
  It's too soon to count Apple out. All of they're biggest releases are still forthcoming.   It's funny to me how it seems every Q2 we have the reports of "Apple is DOOMED" "iPhone is DEAD" almost daily.   Well I guess there truly is nothing new under the sun.
  Even so, they're sales will no doubt pick up with the release of iOS 7, iPhone 5S and potentially the iPhone 5C
  I think it would have the opposite affect.   The 4/4S will be viewed as an entirely different tier of device compared to the 5C.   The 5C is a simple cheap plastic design, the 4/4S is an intricate glass design.    There is a completely different value dynamic for both, and I think some would rather have a device known for being high end rather than a device known for being a cheap alternative.   It's why some people would rather shop at Plato's Closet over Walmart.
  I agree.   Honestly the old settings icons were one of my favorite features of iOS 7.   But the new ones are more functional, and make sense in the light of the third party icons that also populate the settings app.
I don't think Tim Cook and company are worried by these numbers. Apple has a lot of new product coming and that will push the needle back in their favor. Normally when a new iPhone comes, sales double. This year with the possibility of 2 new iPhone models, I think we could easily see iPhone sales triple. I expect the most robust increases will come from emerging markets with the affordable iPhone eating all the competition up.
Great. So now it looks even MORE like iOS. When will Scamdung ever learn?
