Apple confirms that iPhone 8 and X will not have performance reduction because of battery; see why

Should you buy a copy-cat iPhone?

Compare the number that the app pulls up with what your iPhone's CPU speed should be (you can get this information by doing a quick search online - I find Wikipedia to be a good resource), and if the numbers match up, your iPhone isn't being throttled (as is the case with my old iPhone 6 Plus). So it's not that the newer iPhone models don't have throttling practices.

For the just-completed fiscal first quarter, which ended December 30, Apple reported all-time record sales of $88.3 billion, up 13% year over year - even though the quarter had 13 weeks, compared with the 14 weeks in the same quarter last year. Apple has acknowledged that its initial disclosures came up short. The shortfall in iPhone sales were made up by a significantly higher average price per phone- $796, over $100 higher than the average in the same stretch of 2016.

CEO Tim Cook said the iPhone X was the best-selling iPhone model in every week since its release.

Wearables saw significant growth. The Company's products and services include iPhone, iPad, Mac, iPod, Apple TV, a portfolio of consumer and professional software applications, the iOS and OS X operating systems, iCloud, and a variety of accessory, service and support offerings. Apple's quarterly revenue was up 12.7% on a year-over-year basis. equities research analysts predict that Apple will post 11.4 EPS for the current year.

The company is also facing at least 55 lawsuits from customers in the US related to the slowdown, Bloomberg Law data show.

NEW NUCLEAR POLICY: China accusses USA of 'Cold War' mentality
It overturns years of Obama-era policy that sought to reduce the size and power of the United States' nuclear arsenal. Late a year ago it denounced Washington's updated defence strategy and urged the U.S. to abandon "outdated notions".

Unfortunately, while Apple generally delivers big improvements each year, in recent years, Apple's flagship phones have either trailed or merely matched the competition in terms of camera performance.

We have learned that Apple selected two Chinese companies, one a growing smartphone component company, the other a popular semiconductor packaging firm.

Evidence for Face ID throughout this year's iPhone range is growing. There are multiple lawsuits against Apple now. Primary supplier LG Innotek announced last month that it was investing more than $800M into 'camera modules for mobile devices and new technologies for modules.' Although it declined to name the customer, it is widely believed that this is to boost capacity for this year's iPhones. Vantage Financial Partners Ltd. Inc. bought a new stake in shares of Apple during the second quarter valued at about $400,000. "We did it because we thought it was the right thing to do for our customers".

Danny Vena owns shares of Apple. Royal Bank of Canada reissued an "outperform" rating and set a $180.00 price target on shares of Apple in a research report on Tuesday, October 3rd.
