All quotes about IPhone

Amit Daryanani - RBC

Any product they release this year would be successful. There is pent-up replacement demand. Most of us are modeling 11 to 12 percent revenue growth in 2018, a super cycle.feedback

Neil Mawston - Strategy Analytics

Apple grew 1 percent annually and shipped 41.0 million smartphones for 11 percent marketshare worldwide in Q2 2017, down slightly from 12 percent a year ago. Apple's iPhone has gone out of fashion in China and this is placing a cap on its worldwide performance. Attention will now turn to Apple's rumored iPhone 8 introduction later this year and whether its tenth-anniversary flagship model will be different or exciting enough to ignite a rebound in iPhone volumes for the important Q4 2017 Western holiday season.feedback

Tim Cook - Apple

The smart phone is becoming even more important to people because it's going across so much of your life... With things like AR… I think it becomes even more essential than it currently is. We do have a large project going and are making a big investment in this.feedback

Jim Cramer

How do we know this? Because we heard it on the AT&T call. Specifically, in reference to their Time Warner acquisition, management explained that people are watching Time Warner on their handheld – again, widescreen handhelds like the iPhone 7 Plus.feedback

Amit Daryanani - RBC

We think Apple remains ontrack to become the first company to achieve $1 trillion market cap. Apple should sustain an upside bias through and potentially beyond iPhone product launch.feedback

Mark Moskowitz

There is no reason for opportunistic investors to trek to the sidelines given the June-quarter print and Sept-quarter guide.feedback

Steven Milunovich

The Appleverse is expanding, with all segments growing.feedback

Michael Olson - Piper Jaffray

The outlook implies that fears of an iPhone X launch delay, and/or limited availability of the device, may have been overblown. We recommend owning AAPL due to growing anticipation around iPhone X and a favorable trajectory for services revenue. . . Our view is that AAPL is well positioned near-term as proximity to iPhone X will capture investor attention and concerns of a delayed or limited availability iPhone X should begin to fade.feedback

Steven Milunovich

We doubt the OLED model will be available, but our sources suggest a quick ramp in the Dec period.feedback

Katy Huberty - Morgan Stanley & Co. International

Despite investor concerns that OLED iPhone shipments could push to Nov/Dec or even next year, management guided September quarter bullishly and sounded confident on upcoming product launches this fall. We increase our September quarter iPhone unit shipment estimate … in part due to higher overall demand but also due to some of the new products likely contributing later in the quarter.feedback

Rod Hall

The midpoint of Apple's FQ4 revenue guidance at $50.5bn was a significant 7.5% ahead of our estimate. The stock is rebounding to 'pre delay' levels on this though we believe the investment story runs through 2018 as pent up demand for a refreshed iPhone portfolio drives volumes for an extended period.feedback

Tim Cook - Apple

The noise or rapport, some rumors and so forth, are at a different frequency and volume than we've ever had before. And it's clear because I'm getting comments from different people that there is a pause. But despite that, I feel great about how we did.feedback

Neil Shah - Apple

Apple is losing the stickiness of more core services because of WeChat. The effect is profound and WeChat is a nullifier of Apple's ecosystem stickiness in China.feedback

Tim Cook - Apple

In terms of WeChat, the way that I look at this is because our share – because iOS share is not nearly a majority of the market in China, the fact that a lot of people use that, it makes the switching opportunity even greater.feedback

Tim Cook - Apple

We were very encouraged by the results this quarter. We improved as we thought we would from the previous quarters a little more than I thought we would.feedback

Adrian Ward

This idea with smartphones is that it's similarly relevant all of the time, and it gets this privileged attentional space. That's not the default for other things. In a situation where you're doing something other than, say, using your name, there's a pretty good chance that whatever your phone represents is more likely to be relevant to you than whatever else is going on.feedback

Adrian Ward

When you're succeeding at not multitasking–that is, when you're doing a 'good job'–that's not exactly positive as well.feedback

Adrian Ward

Big things are happening so quickly. It's the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, and the internet's only been around for 25 years, yet already we can't imagine our lives without these technologies. The joyful aspects, or positive aspects–or the addictive aspects–are so powerful, and we don't really know the negative aspects yet.feedback

Adrian Ward

We have limited attentional resources, and we use some of them to point the rest of those resources in the right direction. Usually different things are important in different contexts, but some things–like your name–have a really privileged status.feedback

Adrian Ward

We can yell our opinions at each other, and people are going to agree or disagree with them, and set up luddites-versus-technolovers debates. But I wanted to get data.feedback

Brian White - Drexel Hamilton

[W]e believe investors will now feel more confident in owning the stock for the upcoming iPhone 8 cycle that is expected to begin this fall, while also benefitting from the company's capital distribution initiative, attractive valuation and potential new innovations.feedback

Mo Jia - Canalys

People are waiting for the next iPhone. We expect shipments to rebound in Q3 and Q4 ... Revenue from iPad and MacBook sales made up for dropping iPhone sales.feedback

Neil Mawston - Strategy Analytics

Chinese consumers increasingly favor Chinese brands, and Apple is no longer as fashionable in China as it was.feedback

Mark Moskowitz

Apple has a sticky ecosystem and large cash balance ... providing decent downside support for long-term investors.feedback

Jan Dawson - Jackdaw Research

That doesn't necessarily mean all new models will go on sale then, or that they'll all be in abundant supply, but I would think it means that at the very least the successors to the current phones will be available.feedback

Tim Cook - Apple

We hosted an incredibly successful Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June, and we're very excited about the advances in iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS coming this fall. The smart phone is becoming even more important to people because it's going across so much of your life and you can tell by some of the things we did at WWDC that that will only continue.feedback

Tim Cook - Apple

IPhone sales were impressive. One decade after the initial iPhone launch, we have now surpassed 1.2 billion iPhone sold. With revenue up 7 percent year-over-year, we're happy to report our third consecutive quarter of accelerating growth and an all-time quarterly record for Services revenue. We hosted an incredibly successful Worldwide Developers Conference in June, and we're very excited about the advances in iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS coming this fall.feedback

Ed Kraszewski

The truck was taking its freight from A-to-B and did not stop. Even so, (the phones) were gone. So it must have happened that way. And now we finally have the evidence, with the van and the loot.feedback

Mai-Ling Garcia

I know what it's like to be too poor to own a computer. I'm the one in meetings who asks: 'Never mind how well this new app works on an iPhone. Will it run on an old, public-library computer, because that's the only way some of our residents will get to use it?feedback

Luca Maestri

The decline from a market standpoint was concentrated in Hong Kong, which is a place that has been really affected by a reduction in tourism because the Hong Kong Dollar is pegged to the U.S. dollar.feedback

Jon Burgerman

People aren't always flattered. They think they might getting some kind of Central Park portrait. But that's part of making work and doing stuff in public. You can't predict what's going to happen.feedback

Jon Burgerman

I feel like a lot of products I've made are Trojan horses. It's a sofa wrapped in my artwork, or it's a cushion, or it's a pair of sneakers, or it's a sticker on your notebook. It's a little bit of me in your world.feedback

Jon Burgerman

It was more money than I had ever received at any one time. I figured I could live off it for a year easily.feedback

Jon Burgerman

Once your eyes open to this kind of thing, you see it everywhere. There is a pleasure in using unsophisticated equipment.feedback

Jon Burgerman

There were only six of us, and I was the only designer. So no one knew what I was doing. And I didn't know what I was doing.feedback

Jon Burgerman

I don't call that selling out; I call it licensing my soul, briefly.feedback

Jon Burgerman

I wanted to show that if you put one image next to another, you can alter the reading.feedback

Nehal Chokshi - Maxim Group

Everyone's delaying their purchase for the next iPhone. And then for the September quarter guidance: At the end of the September quarter .... you have the new iPhone that's released. But it's always supply constrained. So whatever guidance they're providing, that's a complete reflection of the supply they're going to have on hand. So it never tells you anything about what the real demand is. What really will matter is the December guidance three months from now.feedback

Andy Hargreaves - Pacific Crest Securities

Oddly, stronger-than-expected results may be a contrarian indicator, as it would suggest consumers are not holding off purchases in anticipation of the iPhone 8.feedback

Michael Olson - Piper Jaffray

While not anticipated by us, we believe any 'hiccups' in Jun results, would be glossed over as investors focus on the upcoming iPhone launch. We do not expect investors will be overly unnerved by an outlook that is slightly below consensus, given the widespread news flow around potential for next gen iPhone delays.feedback

Nehal Chokshi - Maxim Group

It's what I'd call a lame duck quarter. It doesn't really matter what they say or do. And this is because everybody knows that the June quarter results, you know – we're at the end of the product cycle. And everybody gives them a pass for whatever results they're going to provide.feedback

Michael Olson - Piper Jaffray

So, our expectation here is an in-line June quarter. For the September quarter, there could be a little bit of a downside in the guidance relative to where the Street is. So basically what's happening is ... where there's smoke, there's fire. People have seen enough rumors about potential for the iPhone to launch later than expected.feedback

Brian White - Drexel Hamilton

Apple is currently in the seasonal doldrums for the iPhone. However, the ramp schedule of the iPhone 8 will dictate if the September quarter could mark the trough this year.feedback

Sam Shank - HotelTonight

This is a generation that grew up with mobile as their first computer, and it was probably an iPhone. In many cases they are very comfortable with it. That is the platform of preference and where they are spending their time, and how they purchase things. We want to be a mobile-first and mobile-only company building and catering to the needs of the mobile traveler.feedback

Katie Mortimer

I think I've still got about 100 iPhone 4 cases, which I don't think I'm ever going to shift.feedback

Nina Garcia

What makes me so excited about True Gault is that not only am I a shoe lover, but I have always been a promoter of technology. True Gault is a rare combination that strikes the perfect balance between tech and fashion, solving a widely known problem for the consumer and the industry as a whole. True Gault is changing the way women select, buy and wear shoes, much like Uber has impacted transportation, or Warby Parker has impacted eyewear.feedback

Nina Garcia

Today, everyone's lifestyle is infused with tech from the way you order groceries to how we get around town. How we express ourselves through fashion should be no different. ... Shoe lovers no longer need to choose comfort or style, and they don't even need to choose from options on the market – aesthetic customization is very exciting.feedback

Russ Levanway - TekTegrity

It works pretty well, but it's not seamless. I have to join conference calls early and work out the glitches before the call starts. To hear Apple is doing something that connects directly with the implant, that's tremendous.feedback

Jan Janssen - Cochlear

It's the first time people with an iPhone will be able to pick up the phone normally, or just listen to music, without any additional devices.feedback

Sarah Herrlinger - Apple

We had to figure out how you could do a bi-modal solution where you're able to simultaneously pair, control and hear both of them running at the same time. That was a really interesting engineering opportunity for us to solve.feedback

Mark Cuban

It scares the s--- out of me. However much change you saw over the last 10 years with the iPhone, over the last 20 years with the Internet, over the last 30 years with PC's, etc., that is nothing. Nothing! Things are getting faster, processing is getting faster, machines are starting to think. And either you make them think for you or they will take your place and do the thinking for you.feedback

Steven Milunovich

A guide below $49bn likely means a late release of the LCD models or a price cut.feedback

Steven Milunovich

We expect a bulge of buying in F18 followed by some growth in F19. As the iPhone matures, investors should start to better appreciate the size of the installed base, which promotes hardware and services gains.feedback

Matt Maley

Let's face it. Apple still generates huge amounts of cash, and I just wonder if we will get a 'buy the news' situation, either when earnings come out or when they announce the iPhone 8, and see if they can break out.feedback

Steve Mollenkopf - Qualcomm

Our products and technologies continue to enable the global smartphone industry, and we are expanding into many exciting new product categories, including automotive, mobile computing, networking and IoT. We believe that we hold the high ground with regard to the dispute with Apple, and we have initiated new actions to protect the well-established value of our technologies.feedback

Steve Mollenkopf - Qualcomm

We delivered better than expected results in our semiconductor business this quarter, which drove EPS above the midpoint of our expectations versus our April updated guidance. We believe that we hold the high ground with regard to the dispute with Apple, and we have initiated new actions to protect the well-established value of our technologies.feedback

Brian White - Drexel Hamilton

Also this year, more investors started thinking about the iPhone 8 and the potential repatriation of cash under the new administration...I believe investors recognize that Apple will not succumb to the challenges of consumer electronic companies of the past, thus the valuation is still inexpensive.feedback

Rob Halliday-Stein

Probably quite a lot hide it. Even a 1kg bar is only the size of an iPhone, so it's very small.feedback

Wamsi Mohan
Stefano Pascale - Bank of America

Our conversations with the Supply Chain suggest that the iPhone 8 will ship 3-4 weeks delayed given technological issues which Apple and its suppliers are working through.feedback

Saqib Shaikh - Microsoft Research

I teamed up with like minded engineers to make an app which lets you know who and what is around you ... years ago this was science fiction. I never thought it would be something you can actually do, but artificial intelligence is improving at an ever faster rate and I am excited to see where this can go.feedback

Tien-tsin Huang - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

While difficult to size, the deal is significant as it provides yet another example of a payment for (Apple Pay) choosing to work with PayPal as a payment partner.feedback

David Lynch - Enerkem

I recommend getting whatever screen you're looking at as close to your eyes as you can get, and use headphones. Turn the lights down, and then you have a chance of getting into a new world.feedback

Josh Brown

When you look at iOS versus Android installs or usage rather, it tends to be concentrated in the cities and cosmopolitan areas and wealthy zip codes. That's who is the consumer of this phone.feedback

Don Rosenberg

Qualcomm's inventions are at the heart of every iPhone and extend well beyond modem technologies or cellular standards … The patents we are asserting represent six important technologies, out of a portfolio of thousands, and each is vital to iPhone functions. Apple continues to use Qualcomm's technology while refusing to pay for it. These lawsuits seek to stop Apple's infringement of six of our patented technologies.feedback

Gabriel de Montmollin

This was the Internet of its day – at least as influential as the iPhone.feedback

Tim Cook - Apple

The reason that we're pursuing this is that Qualcomm's trying to charge Apple a percentage of the total iPhone value. And they do some really great work around standards-essential patents, but it's one small part of what an iPhone is. It's not – it has nothing do with the display or the Touch ID or a gazillion other innovations that Apple has done. And so we don't think that's right, and so we're taking a principled stand on it.feedback

Daniel Newman

Qualcomm spent billions of dollars developing critical technologies that Apple now seems to want to be able to have access to for free or next to nothing.feedback

Alexis Rodzianko

Every second Russian has an iPhone, iPad, so they would all switch to Samsungs. The sanction was against a government agency that has many functions, only one of them being hacking the U.S. elections.feedback

Betsy Van Hees - Loop Capital Markets

Near term it is going to be PC servers and ... mobile is going to be positive for them, particularly with the launch of iPhone 8 coming. But, it is going to be the cloud that is going to be the next leg of the growth story for them.feedback

Patrick Moorhead

The device also reinforced the notion of a pocket computer with near-PC like performance one can fit in their pocket. This impacted the PC industry and of course, put Nokia and BlackBerry out of hardware.feedback

David Bairstow

We still have the voice mail from Steve Jobs when he called the CEO and founder here. He thought he was being pranked by someone in the office and it took him two days to call Steve Jobs back.feedback

Adam Cheyer

We had no idea. I mean literally he called our CEO's phone.feedback

Adam Cheyer

Over multiple discussions, Steve later convinced us that he understood our vision, that he wouldn't just make Siri a tiny feature but something core to Apple's strategy across multiple devices, and that we could impact the world more as part of Apple than as an independent company.feedback

Adam Cheyer

With no hesitation, we said we were flattered but that we weren't looking to sell at that time. We had just raised a new round of funding and had gone through a successful launch. We also had large distribution plans ahead, so an acquisition was just not something we were actively seeking or thinking about at the time.feedback

Tony Fadell - Nest Labs

The business model for year one of the iPhone was a disaster. We pivoted and figured it out in year two. It warms my heart because that's something Steve tried to do with the Apple II and the Mac, which was the computer for the rest of us. It's finally here, 30 years later.feedback

Claire Donato

A rectangle is a flat shape. I can't stop thinking about how the internet is such a flat surface. We're compressed here.feedback

Frank Nuovo

Oh my God. We had it completely nailed.feedback

Bill Buxton

If what I said is credible, then it is equally credible that anything that is going to become a billion dollar industry in the next 10 years is already 10 years old. That completely changes how we should approach innovation. There is no invention out of the blue, but prospecting, mining, refining and then goldsmithing to create something that's worth more than its weight in gold.feedback

Brian Merchant - Motherboard

Thomas Edison did not invent the lightbulb, but his research team found the filament that produced the beautiful, long-lasting glow necessary to turn it into a hit product. Likewise, Steve Jobs did not invent the smartphone, though his team did make it universally desirable. Yet the lone-inventor concept lives on.feedback

Bill Atkinson

It's like a lot of different areas are converging on an electronic box that's in your pocket, that's with you all the time, that supports you in some way. That's going to happen with or without General Magic.feedback

Chris Garcia

There are so many highly evolved and mature technologies packed into our slim rectangles, blending apparently seamlessly together, that they have converged into a product that may resemble magic.feedback

Brian Merchant - Motherboard

The lithium-ion battery–conceived in an Exxon lab, built into a game-changer by an industry lifer, turned into a mainstream commercial product by a Japanese camera maker, and manufactured with ingredients dredged up in the driest, hottest place on Earth–is the unheralded engine driving our future machines.feedback

Tony Fadell - Nest Labs

The touchscreen MacBook project was basically trying to get touchscreen technology into a Mac to try to compete with Microsoft tablets. Steve [Jobs] was pissed off, and wanted to show them how to do it right. Well, that might have been the project to show Microsoft how to do it right, but they quickly realized there was so much software and there were so many new apps needed, and that everything had to be changed that it was very difficult.feedback

Craig Federighi - Apple

We've really focused on building the best track pads we can, something where it feels [like] your posture's relaxed, it's a comfortable machine to use. And, of course, over the years we've experimented with all the technology, but we found it just wasn't good. ... We're not all that interested in building one.feedback

Rick Rieder - BlackRock

We're going through an incredibly historic pinpoint in time where you've done this amazing downward pressure on inflation coming through technology. An iPhone in 1991 storage and computing cost dollars would be worth $1.44 million per phone. An iPhone today costs a minuscule portion of that. That gives you some sense for this incredible inflationary impact on so many things that are now done via mobile or done through automation.feedback

Rick Rieder - BlackRock

Today, massive technological disruptions and long-term demographic trends are remaking the inflation landscape, and we believe both investors and policymakers need to abandon an overly rigid view of price change.feedback

Gene Munster - Loup Ventures

We expect iPhone revenue to grow at 15 percent in FY18 (essential the next iPhone cycle) and account for 64% of revenue. We believe tough comps after the next iPhone cycle will have a negative impact on iPhone growth in FY19, and in FY20 we believe Apple Glasses will start to impact iPhone sales.feedback

Tony Fadell - Nest Labs

Being able to democratize computing and communication across the entire world is absolutely astounding to me. It warms my heart because that's something Steve tried to do with the Apple II and the Mac, which was the computer for the rest of us. It's finally here, 30 years later.feedback

Julia Angwin

If I don't do anything to help my children learn to protect themselves, all their data will be swept up into giant databases, and their identity will be forever shaped by that information.feedback

Jason Chaffetz

Washington D.C., is one of the most expensive places in the world, and I flat-out cannot afford a mortgage in Utah, kids in college and a second place here in Washington, D.C. I think a $2,500 housing allowance would be appropriate and a real help to have at least a decent quality of life in Washington if you're going to expect people to spend hundreds of nights a year here. Maybe rather than getting that new iPhone that they just love and they want to go spend hundreds of dollars on that, maybe they should invest in their own health care. They've got to make those decisions themselves.feedback

Alison Overholt

Going into this, our 9th year of producing BODY, we wanted to do something creatively that we have never done before. We wanted fans to have that moment of awe again where they say, Wow. How did they do that? We were seeing the incredible images iPhone users post on social media tagged with #shotoniphone and our team said, That's it. How about we do a BODY shoot on iPhone?' With Javier on board with us, this cover – and the entire shoot – turned out as beautifully as we imagined.feedback

Scott Forstall

The biggest science project of the entire endeavor, I think, for software, was the soft keyboard. We knew we had to make a keyboard, but we knew it would be compared against the BlackBerry. The BlackBerry was the most popular smartphone out at the time – it was called the 'crackberry,' right?feedback

Scott Forstall

The 'H' button would stay the same physical size to your eye, but the 'hit region' would grow. And so when you went toward the H, you're probably going to hit the 'H' now ... it would figure these things out.feedback

Edward C. Baig - USA TODAY

The most remarkable thing about iPhone is what's missing: a physical dialing keypad.feedback

David Sullivan

It's typically a very Rust Belt centric part of the population that cares. Even then, we're splitting hairs here. Is an iPhone American because it's an American company? Or is it Chinese since it is assembled there?feedback

John Oliver

Vaccines are one of humanity's most incredible accomplishments and they've saved millions of lives. There was a time when a new one was cause for huge celebration. It's true – people lined up for the polio shot like it was an iPhone. But despite their success, small groups are both skeptical and vocal about vaccines, which is nothing new. But these days their voice has been amplified by the human megaphone that is the president of the United States.feedback

Brenda Smith

It just blows me away to the extent that gadgets have grown. I was so terrified when I got my first mobile phone, can't even remember when it was, it was so long ago. Maybe 15 or 16 years. No speech though, had to use it by memory and hope for the best that you were turning it on and off correctly. And there was no way of texting. Then when Nokias came on the scene, then the iPhone, just unbelievable.feedback

Shin-Tson Wu

Using our flexible anti-reflection film on smartphones and tablets will make the screen bright and sharp, even when viewed outside. In addition to exhibiting low reflection, our nature- inspired film is also scratch resistant and self-cleaning, which would protect touch screens from dust and fingerprints.feedback

Dimitrios Tsivrikos

Using a phone allows us to become closer to the experience of shopping. The flexibility makes it easier to engage with these retailers, and the trust we have in them improves. Particularly in London, there has been a great impact on travelling now you can pay with your mobile phone. That really started engaging us to use our phone as our wallet. Apple Pay has been very important. We have seen that people have been distrustful of banking since the financial crisis and my research has indicated that technology is more trusted.feedback

Dimitrios Tsivrikos

With your smartphone you can now get practically any household chore you want done, transport yourself anywhere and even date. Money and our personal behaviours are now going through our phones, so our phone has become the main gatekeeper of these things.feedback

Jack Antonoff

You give meaning to a space based on what you do in it. I think the album sort of sounds like what it's like in here, which is just me jumping around, twisting things and turning things until I hear something that catches me off-guard. It's hard to put something in a song that surprising – but exciting.feedback

Scott Forstall

We were always looking at what would overtake iPod. What would cannibalize that. The one thing that seemed like it was was phones. Everyone was using phones. No one seemed like it was a pleasurable thing to use a phone, but it's a nice thing for communication. The second you saw this demo, you knew this was it. This was the way a phone had to behave.feedback

Scott Forstall

The moment you saw that, you knew this was the way to go. Steve said, do you think you could take that demo that we're doing with the tablet and the multitouch and shrink it down to something small enough to fit in your pocket?' We went back to the design team and they took it and they carved out a corner of it. Steve saw it and said 'put the tablet on hold, let's build a phone.' And that's what we did.feedback

Scott Forstall

The reviews talked about the number of clicks. Oh, to send an email it takes you six taps or something. It was being compared against other smartphones at the time – Blackberry and all.feedback

Scott Forstall

Do we do an MVNO? Do we license, white-box a carrier solution through some other carrier? Do we buy spectrum and build out the entire network ourselves? Do we partner with one?feedback

Scott Forstall

The iPhone had a very circuitous route. We'd been working on a tablet project. It began because Steve hated this guy at Microsoft. Any time Steve had any interaction with the guy, he'd come back pissed off. You don't use a stylus ... we're born with 10 styluses. What they didn't get was we were changing the entire paradigm. We were changing the entire way things were done.feedback

Scott Forstall

It was being compared against other smartphones of the time, BlackBerry etc, according to the metrics people thought were important at the time.feedback

Brian Merchant - Motherboard

Which, again, was a fair assessment; early smartphones were either indeed kind of geeky-looking or aimed at the email-obsessed business crowd.feedback

Brian Merchant - Motherboard

The issue was never with faith in his staff, and while there were certainly technical concerns–the embryo of the iPhone was basically a prototyped research project for a long, long time–it was with whether entering the market at all was worth the risk. When it became clear enough that smartphones would become competitors to the iPod, it added some pressure and forced his hand a bit.feedback

Brian Merchant - Motherboard

Jobs was a powerful source of inspiration, a fierce curator of good ideas and rejector of bad ones, and a savvy and potent negotiator. But the iPhone began as an experimental project undertaken without his knowledge, became an official project at the prodding of his executives staff and was engineered into being by a team of brilliant, unfathomably hard-working programmers and hardware experts.feedback

Brian Merchant - Motherboard

There would be no iPhone if it weren't for the work of people on every layer here– not to mention those who manufacture the device itself in sprawling megafactories in China, but that, I suppose, is for another story.feedback

Andy Grignon

Instead of being this awesome Alexander Graham Bell moment, it was just like, Yeah,… go to voice mail. I think it's very apropos, given where we are now.feedback

Andy Grignon

You created a pressure cooker of a bunch of really smart people with an impossible deadline, an impossible mission, and then you hear that the future of the entire company is resting on it. It was just like this soup of misery.feedback

Will Welch

Sometimes, you go to a show and the lighting is wrong for an iPhone. And you think, You just shouldn't have had this show.feedback

Micky Tripathi

At any given time, only about 10 to 15 per cent of patients care about this stuff. If any company can figure out engagement, it's Apple.feedback

Aneesh Chopra

As health care goes digital, the promise has always been to give patients and the doctors they trust full access to their health information.feedback

Robert Hwang - Wistron

Assembly process for the previous generations of [iPhones] have not changed much, though new features like waterproof and wireless charging now require some different testing, and waterproof function will alter the assembly process a bit.feedback

Brian Hennessey

Without this little flash crash, we were probably going to see some downward movement anyway on Apple. There is some downside risk that was not there to nearly this extent at the beginning of the year. It's partly timing as you get closer to the launch.feedback

Timothy M. Ghriskey - Solaris

Anticipation of a new iPhone has been out there for a while now, and maybe we're entering a period where the stock is topped out.feedback

Kulbinder Garcha - Credit Suisse Group

We note that Apple has historically raised iPhone prices along with key updates. Given its affluent user base, a significant feature upgrade, limited price elasticity shown so far, as well as Samsung's higher pricing points of the S8 devices, we believe our ASP [average selling price] assumptions could prove conservative.feedback

Kulbinder Garcha - Credit Suisse Group

We remain convinced that the iPhone 8 product cycle will be significant in terms of driving multiyear unit growth, and we maintain our conviction on Apple's ability to introduce new higher pricing tiers with an improved mix.feedback

Robert Brunner

When I started out in my career, design was seen as a necessary evil, especially in relation to technology. It moved into this phase where all of the sudden people saw design as a corporate identity thing, like 'all of our products need to look alike.' In the early 1990s, it moved into innovation for innovation's sake. And then there started being this shift, driven somewhat by Apple, where people began to understand that design was what made them want your technology to be part of their lives.feedback

Robert Brunner

Jony and his team have changed the way people see design. I think for us we constantly have to put more and more pressure on ourselves to be original and meaningful and not just derivative. But there's something unique about American design culture–and, in particular, Silicon Valley design culture–that really drives that originality. I think there's something in the water here that drives people to always push to do something different, beyond the status quo.feedback

Robert Brunner

The fact is, Universal Display is one of the few public pure-plays on OLEDs, the industry has gigantic momentum, and as we get closer to the new iPhone launch, I bet this stock will roar. I think this is just the beginning, as we're starting to see OLEDs being used for all sorts of electronic devices, and since Universal Display isn't just a commodity play – you need to license their technology to make the best screens – the stock could have more room to run.feedback

Peter Tchir - Brean Capital

I'm not sure what the right value is for Apple, but it is extremely concerning to me, that a stock of this importance can trade like that – on virtually nothing! After Friday's price action, I can't be anything but bearish near term. The 'healthy' rotation seems to hide the fact that for brief moments of time there was virtually no liquidity (at a price) for some of the biggest and most loved stocks.feedback

Andy Hargreaves - Pacific Crest Securities

We believe AAPL anticipates strong performance in the iPhone 8 cycle, while providing relatively little weight to risks through the cycle or the potential for iPhone sales to decline in FY19. Recent supply checks suggest iPhone 8 (OLED) may be delayed until October, with limited initial supply that ramps through F1Q. Consequently, we are shifting iPhone units out of FY17 into FY18, which, along with an increase to our iPhone 8 ASP estimate, drives our FY17 EPS estimate down to $8.86 and our FY18 EPS estimate up to $10.53.feedback

Changes in technology have changed the expectations of what a traveller needs in a hotel. People still want them.feedback

Kulbinder Garcha - Credit Suisse Group

We remain convinced that the iPhone product cycle will be significant in terms of driving multi-year unit growth, and maintain our conviction on Apple's ability to introduce new higher pricing tiers with improved mix. Given this, as well as a high retention rate, we see the 8 Super-cycle will unleash pent-up demand.feedback

Kulbinder Garcha - Credit Suisse Group

Apple has historically raised iPhone prices along with key updates. Given its affluent user base, a significant feature upgrade, limited price elasticity shown so far, as well as Samsung's higher pricing points of the Galaxy S8 devices, we believe our pricing assumptions could prove conservative at $670/$770/$900 for three tiers of the new phones.feedback

If you squint at Tesla one way, it looks like Apple circa 2007, 2008 – where they've released the iPhone, they just haven't sold many yet. But they're going to sell a ton.

Amit Daryanani - RBC

We believe AAPL's current stock price creates an attractive entry point for investors to benefit from its ability to return to revenue and EPS growth in FY17. AAPL has potential to achieve a $1.0 trillion dollar market cap and even surpass that over the next 12–18 months. In aggregate, we see a scenario where in FY19 AAPL sustains $12+ EPS and, assuming the valuation frameworks remains stable/improves, it should get AAPL stock toward $192–195/sh, which would equate to market cap > $1.0 trillion.feedback

Neil Shah - Apple

China is roughly a 100 million shipment market per quarter, with the premium segment accounting for close to 25 percent of the market on average. Apple has hit a ceiling in terms of the total premium market it can capture. Those who wanted an iPhone already have one, and the upgrade cycle for iPhone has extended in China. Previously they used to have strong sales in older generation iPhones, but that is not happening because in that segment, Oppo and Vivo are putting good handsets and taking away share from Apple.feedback

Timothy Arcuri - Cowen And Company

The question I would ask him really is about hardware pricing power. Because if you look at the last five years, everybody would agree that the entire smartphone market is slowing down.

It took us a little while to adjust all the way back through the supply chain and to bring iPhone 7 Plus [availability] into balance, which occurred ... early this past quarter. Where the iPhone 7 Plus did well, we didn't perform as well on some of the previous generation iPhones. What I now believe is that we'll improve a bit more during this current quarter, not back to growth but improve -- but make more progress. Demand for AirPods significantly exceed supply, and growth in Beats products has also been very strong.feedback

We're bullish on the iPhone 8 for three reasons: Apple's ecosystem stickiness, the expected upgradability of the device, and teenage fondness of Apple devices.feedback

This is a very mixed report for Apple in terms of results. Apple sold less iPhones than it did a year ago, but the possibility of consumers holding out until the new iPhone release is very real, especially when the upgrade is rumored to be more meaningful than in previous years. We're not disappointed but our expectations were low to begin with. We would have liked to have seen stronger renewed growth, but after spoiling us for the past few years, it doesn't come as easy for Apple as it used to.feedback

Tim Cook - Apple

We are seeing a kind of delay in purchasing behavior that we think is a consequence of the number of rumors and reports about future products. That is happening. However, if you look at iPhone outside of greater China, iPhone units grew very nicely. We had more upgraders in the first half than ever before. And we had more switchers than ever before. There is a lot of good news in there. We are investing a ton in machine learning and autonomous systems. We are having significant growth rates beyond what we ever dreamed of.feedback

If you look at the industry, this has been one of the most anticipated product releases in years.

They have a consumer ecosystem and a following that's really unique to any technology company.

Checks with suppliers suggest Apple is struggling with optical fingerprint functionality, which could lead to delays in supply of the coming OLED iPhone or elimination of fingerprint sensing in the OLED iPhone in favor of a biometric login that relies exclusively on 3D sensing. While this creates some risk of production delays, at this point we do not believe it materially threatens volume through the coming iPhone cycle.feedback

Andy Hargreaves - Pacific Crest Securities

Likely options for Apple include a delay of production or elimination of fingerprint sensing on the OLED iPhone. We believe Apple continues to work on solving its optical fingerprint issues. If it's able to solve the problems in the next month or so, it would likely place volume orders at that point. This would likely lead to a delay of the OLED iPhone launch, but we would not expect it to meaningfully affect volume for the cycle. If it's not able to fix the problems in that time frame, Apple may be forced to eliminate fingerprint sensing from the OLED iPhone altogether.feedback
