Apple expands iPhone 5C offerings in select markets

Last month, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) launched the lower capacity iPhone 5C in Germany, Australia, United Kingdom, France, and China. Unfortunately, the new version isn’t available in the United States. The main reason Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is launching a cheaper version of the already low-priceed phone is because of the poor sales. However, it’s still highly unlikely sales for Apple’s budget phone will rise even with the recent unveilings.

Morningstar Investment Conference: Gabelli Funds On Where To Invest Amid Inflation

InflationNumerous news headlines have trumpeted major concerns about inflation, which has been at 40-year highs. But how should investors handle inflation as it pertains to their portfolios? At the Morningstar Investment Conference on Monday, Kevin Dreyer, co-CIO of Gabelli Funds, outlined some guidelines for investing in the age of inflation.

Recently, analysts have argued the move is unlikely to make sales drive up. According to Apple Insider, “But (Gene) Munster doesn’t believe this new, lower capacity iPhone 5c will have the same level of impact this year, calling its launch “ultimately irrelevant” for the company’s June quarter. A bigger concern for him are consensus estimates for Apple’s June quarter. He said that Wall Street currently expects the company to report $38.7 billion in revenue for the three-month period, which would represent 10 percent year over year growth — a number Munster believes is too high.”

iPhone 5S still a hot seller

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s lack of success in the budget phone market doesn’t have any negative impact on iPhone 5S sales, which have been as strong as ever. This phone was quite the upgrade from the iPhone 5 with a fingerprint sensor and upscale color options. Given Apple’s history of significantly enhancing the iPhone year after year, fans have a lot to look forward to.

Current rumors involving the iPhone 6 predict even bigger changes with the upcoming iPhone 6. One particular change many fans are hoping for is an Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) phablet. Although Apple’s biggest Android rivals already tapped into the larger phone market, the Cupertino-based tech giant remains reluctant. That could change later on this year if Apple decides to step into the phablet arena.

  1. I agree with you on that one, how much really would it have cost Apple to make 32gb as standard $10 maybe if that. A 8gb phone is a joke.

  2. It is indeed sad to see how desperate people are for social acceptance, buying a phone without expandable memory and only 8gb capacity, just to say that they own an iPhone…and especially when it’s the model from 2 years ago, repackaged in a cheap plastic case, to boot…even more amazing when you consider the newest one was outclassed by the competition when it launched. But buy, they will, because they can say they own an iPhone.
    Those that understand will look down on them, but there are more stupid people in the world every day, it seems, so there will be a lot of people impressed by their purchase. *shakes head*
