Apples iPhone sales tanked Now all eyes are on whats ahead

first_img $999 The company had raised a red flag in November, when it said it would stop disclosing how many units it sells each quarter.On Tuesday, investors will get a more-detailed picture of what missed and why. More important, said analysts, will be what Apple says during its conference call about the state of the second quarter, which ends in March.”The big question is how much iPhone channel inventory Apple built in Q1,” Toni Sacconaghi, an analyst at Bernstein, wrote in a note to investors last week. Sacconaghi encouraged investors to listen for commentary on replacement cycles for the iPhone, reasons for the downturn in China and demand in other regions for the iPhone. “Our contention [is] that China only appears to account for half of the iPhone’s shortfall in Q1,” he wrote.UBS analyst Timothy Arcuri raised similar concerns in his investors note, writing that he’ll be paying attention to what Apple says about iPhone inventory levels, how long the company expects to be affected by demand in China, potential price reductions and iPhone upgrade cycles.

Boost Mobile See It Apple’s iPhone XS didn’t sell as well as analysts had expected during the holiday season.  Angela Lang/CNET Early this month, Apple CEO Tim Cook gave us the bad news in broad strokes. On Tuesday, we’ll find out just how bad it was.In a letter shared with investors on Jan. 2, Cook revealed that revenue in the company’s fiscal first quarter, ended on Dec. 29, would miss Apple’s own forecasts by about 15 percent. He laid most of the blame on an economic slowdown in China. “In fact, most of our revenue shortfall to our guidance, and over 100 percent of our year-over-year worldwide revenue decline, occurred in Greater China across iPhone, Mac and iPad,” he wrote. Cook also blamed a decrease in carrier phone subsidies and higher prices overseas caused by a strong US dollar. Customers additionally took advantage of Apple’s $29 battery replacement offer, which lets them squeeze more life out of their older iPhones. The company now sees sales of $84 billion, well below the range of $89 billion to $94 billion it had forecast in November. The earnings warning was Apple’s first in more than 15 years. The weaker holiday season — a period when most of Apple’s iPhones are sold — fanned a growing belief that the industry as a whole, and Apple in particular, is grappling with consumer smartphone fatigue. Many people also pointed to the high price tags on Apple’s newest phones. The iPhone XS ranges from $999 to $1,349, depending on storage capacity, and the XS Max with 512 GB of storage costs as much as $1,499. By comparison, the MacBook Air starts at $999.

Stephen Hawking coin revealed and its out of this world

first_img Culture “It is a great privilege to be featured on a coin, and I hope my father would be pleased to be alongside Sir Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin as scientists who have made it on to money,” Lucy Hawking said in a statement. In a video taken at the Mint, she comments on the design. “It’s a 2D surface that seems to have a 3D image on it,” Hawking notes. “It’s as though you could fall into the black hole.”Coin collector site Change Checker says Hawking will be one of only three people commemorated on a British coin within a year of dying, along with Winston Churchill and the Queen Mother.When Hawking was just 21, he was diagnosed with a form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis known as Lou Gehrig’s disease that gradually paralyzed him. He used a wheelchair and spoke through a computer system operated with his cheek.Hawking is also in the running to appear on the British 50 pound note. £50 translates to about $64 US and AU$92. Comment The Mint revealed the coin late Monday. It features Hawking’s name and an image of a black hole, with Queen Elizabeth II on the reverse side.hawkingcoincropThe Hawking coin as shown on the Royal Mint’s site. Royal Mint “Stephen Hawking made difficult subjects accessible, engaging and relatable and this is what I wanted to portray in my design,” coin designer Edwina Ellis said on the Royal Mint’s site. “I wanted to fit a big black hole on the tiny coin and wish he was still here chortling at the thought. I am sure he would have thought of ways to harness the shiny table of the coin too.”Those of us who don’t have a regular opportunity to handle British money can buy the coin online, but it’s not cheap. According to the Daily Mirror, the Mint is selling the coin for £10 ($13 US, AU$18) for a simple uncirculated version of the coin to £795 ($1,050 US, AU$1,485) for a gold version of the coin. (Or just find a British friend to get you one.)The coin’s release came two days before the one-year anniversary of Hawking’s death on March 14. The acclaimed scientist was 76 when he died in 2018.Hawking’s daughter, Lucy, and son Tim visited the Royal Mint to see the coin.
