To some degree, I would think it could be worked around, by extending the iBeacon API within iOS to be locked to a specific UUID series for this type of application, but it is easy enough to get abused by bad actors.

But you are not going to find 0.75% interest in a savings account right now. (You will of course get more than that in dividends alone from Apple stock though.)
If you are a long term investor, there isn't much to really fear-- the stock is trading at a PE of 15, has a yield of 1.5%, and has some huge backstops to its underlying business.
I would attribute most most of the drop to general market concern and just taking profits. I had scheduled a sale for January for tax reasons myself, need to re-think my plan personally.
That said, a part of me thinks we will see $160 before we see $210 again. Hope Apple is "backing up the truck" on the drop though.
