The iPhone 7 will have such built-in desirability that next year Apple will be releasing it onto the market with the name, "the Kraken,"
What you don't understand is that Apple is selling the iPhones at very nearly the cost that other manufacturers pay for their components and other expenses. Apple is killing it because of their scale of business. If Apple were to reduce their sale prices they could be sued for predatory pricing. Apple also is careful to not let their products become commodity products—so lowering pricing to increase market share is not in the cards. Besides, market share is not a metric...
Fer Kerist's Sake, did you even browse the article. For one thing it states how Apple is not losing sales to Android, they are losing them to their own iPhone Pluses.
While I totally agree with you, It's a great enjoyment to me, as an Apple fan, to have the current level of sales data to ponder over—not from an investment POV but to have some insight into how well Apple is killing it with their products and marketing abilities.
Apple's marketing is so good it's in a category by itself. Meanwhile, Amazon has gotta be rethinking their decision to drop TV to promote their own "shit on a stick" alternate.
In truth, there was little pressure to get the accessories into the stores ahead of the iPad Pro, so in some places they arrived together and in some places they didn't.

A keyboard is still an anachronistic input device from the 1800s. I don't think the layout is as big of an issue as the whole concept.
Go to your iPad App Store and do a search for "IBM". Be prepared to be hear your jaw hit the desk.
That "rest of the world" is becoming more irrelevant with the passing of each day. Now that iOS (as well as OSX) can run MS Office, my main reason for running a PC or any desktop has vanished. I remember the pissing and moaning that went on in the early eighties when office staff were asked to give up their Selectric typewriters...Also, all those in-house programs that could "only run on a PC" are now running just fine as a web version, or on iOS, or both. The unsinkable...
