 Doesn't matter. Cook said it didn't live up to expectations. Sold lower than they were hoping.
 Hmmmm... Ever since Cook announced that they didn't really know when it comes to the 5c... well, I'm not ready to accept that as an answer.
 1. I never used the word troubling, nor did I even come remotely close to saying it is troubling. 2. The 5c is not the second best selling phone in the US.
 All of that said nothing to the question I asked. Not sure why you quoted me.
 You do understand that Apple's penetration of "emerging" markets is much lower than 32%... right?
 Price is what we are talking about. The 5s / 5c feature comparison doesn't even enter into the equation... until, as you say, the 5c has 100-150 bucks lopped off the retail price. I really do wonder, though, if the 5c will stick around. At this point Apple has to be pondering the question of whether price alone would move the 5c in the numbers they were hoping to get the first time.
 Yup... hiring someone from the fashion industry really shows me that Apple knows how to manage the lower end.
 They know how to manage this? Please elaborate.
As if this is news. I think that many of us have known for a long time that people want iOS, being able to afford it is another matter. That's Apple's challenge. Finding a way to make a phone that has most of the regular iPhone features but has a price that more people can afford... while at the same time not cannibalizing the top end and not hurting margins too severely.
When a company reveals that Apple is one of its major customers, the shares in that company surge.   ... meanwhile, back at Apple.
