Looking at revenue and EPS, I think its a good thing not to report unit sales anymore. Beside giving hints at the competition to what works, the bottom and top lines are more important than unit sales.
Revenu on sept 2017: 52.58. Revenu on sept 2018: 62.9. 19,6% YoY growth.
EPS on sept 2017: 2.07. EPS on sept 2018: 2.91. 40% YoY growth.
I think Buffet is right. People focusing on Unit sales are not getting Apple.
Sales are hurt by a strong US dollar which is high because the fed is rising interest rates.
Companies like Apple with a complex international supply chain are hurt by trading tensions.
If Apple prices drop a lot before Apple resume it's buybacks, load up. If you own it, don't sell.
The price of Apple high end phone needs to come down to around $700. It’s just too expensive for what it is. I am not upgrading any of my Apple devices because of price, 2015 ipads, 2012 imacs, 2014 MBP, iphone 6. Holding on until it breaks.
Latest Apple purchased: Apple TV 4k because I wanted 4k and iphone X because my 6 plus died is sea water. I am considering buying an Apple watch if they continu to add medical features on it.

There's no accounting for wishful thinking. Regardless of what the anti-antitrusters believe, this will cause a great deal of short-term problems for Apple, especially with the Congressional anti-trust on big tech expected soon. Ultimately it may resolve in Apple's favor -- or not -- but to pretend that this will not cause problems is silly.
The antitrust case is more of an App store one, Apple is not dominant in any of its hardware markets.
