Gene Munster - Loup Ventures

We've had 40 analysts who've expected this for a year. I tend to still believe we'll get this pullback. Once we get past the excitement of the pre-orders around the iPhone X, I think there'll be naturally some concern about the March quarter and June quarter look like next year. ... But I think as a company, and their position around services, and where things are going longer-term around AR, I think it's exceptional well-positioned. Despite some of these reviews, it's still the best phone in the world.feedback

Gene Munster - Loup Ventures

We think there will be far less adoption of the most advanced version. Typically, corporate also under-indexes to consumers, because they're usually a little bit tighter on their budget and they want a phone that's been around for a little bit.feedback

Matthew Panzarino - TechCrunch

The marquee feature of the iPhone 8 Plus is 'Portrait Lighting.' Using deep learning and computer vision, this mode finds faces in an image, detects the planes and angles that need to be lit and applies a variety of different lighting styles that a user can choose from either before or after the picture is taken. It works better than it has any right to.feedback

Nilay Patel

If the iPhone X is Apple's bold vision of the future, the iPhone 8 is Apple making sure everyone else at the party has a nice time too.feedback

Nilay Patel

The iPhone 8 might be the most polished iteration of this basic design Apple's ever made, but compared to the Galaxy S8 and other Android flagships like the LG V30, it's just extremely dated. I've already scratched the 8 Plus by carrying it around in my pocket. We'll see what happens when millions of people around the world start dropping these things.feedback

David Pierce - Wired

It may make the iPhone 8 more fragile–Apple says it won't, my history with glass phones says it will–but it definitely makes it classier. Everything works great. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are virtually perfect phones. And yet it's already obsolete.feedback

Matthew Panzarino - TechCrunch

The camera is the best reason to buy a new iPhone this year just as it has been several years running.feedback

Steve Kovach - Business Insider

For the first time in the 10-year history of the iPhone, I can't recommend buying the newest models.feedback

Nicole Nguyen - BuzzFeed

It was amazing to just put my phone down on my side table instead of futzing around with plugging the thing into its port every night. The charge speed was about the same as plugging it in. It was not amazing, though, waking up and finding out that my iPhone didn't charge at all, because it wasn't perfectly centered on the pad.feedback

Nicole Nguyen - BuzzFeed

The Plus has two lenses, which enables 'Portrait Mode,' and makes food look so good. What that means in practice is more detailed photos that really only appear more detailed if you zoom way, way in.feedback

David Pierce - Wired

The combination of a new 12-megapixel sensor, the laptop-grade A11 Bionic processor, and a reworking of the iPhone 8's internals to make everything faster and more efficient.feedback

Kimmie Greene

While this can sound super daunting today, if you're putting that money to work starting in your 20s, it's not as difficult as it sounds.feedback

Matthew Panzarino - TechCrunch

Had Apple not announced the X when it did, the iPhone 8 would be an easy choice for upgraders and about the same amount of take-it-or-leave-it talk by early adopters that we saw at the launch of the iPhone 7.feedback

Geoffrey A. Fowler - The Wall Street Journal

Apple's confusing iPhone family now includes three pairs of practically identical phones: the regular and Plus versions of the iPhone 8, 7 and 6s. Don't buy the spendiest one.feedback

Katy Huberty - Morgan Stanley & Co. International

Innovation-led price increases historically boost, rather than hinder, Apple demand. Apple is an aspirational brand offering high quality, innovative products at a premium price. As a result, the company escapes the typical trend of declining prices that drive demand for other devices. In fact, demand for iPhone is directly correlated to the direction of ASPs - higher prices, higher demand and vice versa.feedback

Phil Schiller - Apple

With the iPhone X, your iPhone is locked until you look at it and it recognizes you. Nothing has ever been more simple, natural, and effortless. This is the future of how we'll unlock our smartphones and protect our sensitive information.feedback

Mike McCormack - Jefferies

That's been the biggest fear … call it irrational or competitive behavior.feedback

Amy Yong

They said they wouldn't be, but within 24 hours of the announcement you were already seeing promotions hit the tape. Broadly speaking, they moved away from subsidizing to equipment installment plans. The idea is after a few years, you own your own phone. This is literally a three or four-year phenomena. Subsidizing had become an ugly word among the investment community. It just meant there was more cash flow burn among carriers.feedback

Mike McCormack - Jefferies

We're seeing a decline in upgrade rates, and part of that decline in upgrade rates is because people paid off their phones. Your bill will drop by whatever the equivalent payment was … what we're finding is customers are interested in having a lower bill.feedback

Mike McCormack - Jefferies

The margins have been tremendous to the extent customers are paying for their own phone.feedback

Mark Stodden - Moody's

It's really just about promotion activity. When there's a new phone launch, the carriers become very defensive about protecting their market position. They have to respond, and there's so much sensitivity from Wall Street on quarterly subscriber numbers and market share and less on cash flow because cash flow is so noisy. That may have some impact on their behavior.feedback

Mark Stodden - Moody's

That's actually really good for the carriers. One, the phones cost them a lot of money. The fewer phones they need to buy the better, and two, every time you get a new phone it's an opportunity to evaluate whether you want to stay with that carrier. Just yesterday, T-Mobile was talking about this at the Goldman Sachs conference. When they do a high-profile device promotion, the rest of the industry copies them and you don't really get an advantage from it. Device promotions don't really work because the industry is so competitive.feedback

Mark Stodden - Moody's

When you had subsidies, it was opaque. The customer didn't really know how much the carrier was absorbing or subsidizing, as far as the phone cost. Now that you split them apart, you have a more transparent market.feedback

Wayne Lam - IHS

On the original iPhone, yield rates for capacitive touch [screens] were like 80% because it was new technology.feedback

Michael Bonebright - DealNews

The best time to purchase a new iPhone will be over the Black Friday season. Stores like Best Buy will often bundle store gift cards to lower the cost of smartphones. Whatever you do, don't purchase Apple products from the Apple store. They haven't offered Black Friday discounts over the past two years and the store never hosts sales.feedback

Jill Gonzalez

Consumers are asked to pay $1,000 for the new iPhone X at a time when credit card debt is approaching record highs. Still, installment plans and other financing arrangements will help the iPhone remain as popular as ever, even if, from an economic point of view, it's not the best time to indulge in such expenses.feedback

Phil Schiller - Apple

The new iPhone will have the most durable glass ever in a smartphone. Words can't describe how much nicer it is to never plug in a cable again.feedback

Phil Schiller - Apple

This is a simple thing. We do it everyday. We use them every day and charge every night.feedback

Tim Cook - Apple

Our intention has always to create something so magical, powerful, that the hardware virtually disappears.feedback

Patrick Moorhead

But if you are someone who has frozen their credit record, you may suddenly discover that you can't afford an iPhone X, after all.feedback

Thomas Lee

We have some data. There's only about 300,000 holders of at least $5,000 of Bitcoin. That's like saying the iPhone was a bubble in 2007, four days into the sale because there were 500,000 iPhones sold.feedback

Jennifer Lawrence

You might think you know me, but when you approach me you're a total stranger to me and I'm scared. I get very protective of my space. It took me a long time to be able to do that. But if I'm eating dinner and somebody comes up and a flash goes off from someone's iPhone camera, I am really rude to that person. Then other people at the restaurant will see and be like, Oh, damn, I don't want to do that.' Privacy is a full-time job and I work very hard at it.feedback

Scott Franklin

Even if they do see it in the theater, the second, third, or fourth time they see it might be on an iPhone, where the film is going to live forever and for eternity. Over time, more people will see all of our films somewhere other than the theater.feedback

Darren Aronofsky

It's closer to what people are actually going to see on a handheld device.feedback

Scott Franklin

We'd love for people to see it in the theater. That's just not the reality of the world.feedback

Scott Franklin

In this day and age, you have such incredible formats created for sound. So much work goes into servicing all of those speakers and all those sounds and to have it reduced to just two speakers, and in some cases one, it's tragic.feedback

Al Franken

Apple has stated that is has no plans to allow any third party applications access to the Face ID system or its faceprint data. Can Apple assure its users that it will never share faceprint data, along with the tools or other information necessary to extract the data, with any commercial third party?feedback

Jim Cramer

I think one of the reasons why there was so little 'Wow, got to have it' about the new iPhone, at least among the analyst community, is that the analysts themselves might be too old to get their heads around the way younger people see these products. When new technology comes out, millennials, who tend to be too young to be senior analysts, are far more likely to figure out how to use them and how to adapt to them.feedback

Jim Cramer

You think any of these post-50-year-old analysts get that? They don't see anything new because they don't understand how 20-somethings use technology to brand or even re-brand themselves. They don't understand silly games. They see everything as incremental. Younger people see everything as the ability to explore the seemingly un-explorable or re-create themselves to friends in a setting that's as compelling as a big-screen movie.feedback

Jim Cramer

If you're a baby boomer like me, then the best way to figure out what's happening or what's going to happen, especially when it comes to this kind of technology, is to watch what your own kids are doing.feedback

Jim Cramer

Cruises are fun, I get that. More important, though, an EDM cruise is a chance to brand yourself via Instagram.feedback

Jim Cramer

One device can do hundreds of things that Wall Street analysts would never want to do or know about. That's why it's 'Blah, blah, blah' instead of 'Wow.' That's why these analysts think the stock should be traded. And that's why they're wrong.feedback

Jim Cramer

Playing Pokemon Go, I suddenly could envision a game that could talk to you in high resolution [and] allow you to communicate with others in real time with much more clever augmented realities. Those are not yet available, but these phones are coming closer and closer, and I want to see very much what the iPhone X can do along these lines. I know my kids will tell me much earlier than I will know myself.feedback

Nate Cardozo - Electronic Frontier Foundation

The legal analysis of Face ID is the same as Touch ID. There is no legal difference between the finger printing and facial recognition.feedback

Andrew Blaich - Lookout

It's going to be a very interesting question for the industry. It wasn't until the tech got implemented into an iPhone that people started to consider the ramifications of this sort of thing.feedback

Mike Sievert - T-Mobile US

Within a few days, everybody had copied it. What exactly does this accomplish?feedback

Lowell McAdam - Verizon

I'm encouraged, frankly, by the discipline there appears to be around promotions for the iPhone.feedback

Terri Kallsen

Wealth is often thought of as a lofty, unattainable number that doesn't apply to most of us, but that's an old-fashioned notion that needs to be retired. It doesn't matter whether you have a lot or a little – what matters is that you think about the money you have as your wealth, and that you pay attention to it. Being engaged is the only way to reach your personal goals.feedback

Marcelo Claure - Sprint

I think we should invite the manufacturers to share a little of the cash flow burden. We're not too excited with the prices going up and also having to finance that.feedback

Lyndon Smith

Everybody's face is slightly different, so it's almost like a 3D fingerprint. Even identical twins, you can differentiate between them when you're applying this kind of technique.feedback

Lyndon Smith

Wherever you go in the world…you could, rather than carrying a card around with a PIN and all this complexity, just simply use your face.feedback

Amarjot Singh

Essentially you've developed an X-ray to look into people's identity, and that I think is very exciting.feedback

Lyndon Smith

Our intention is certainly not to have some kind of Big Brother thing going on; we wouldn't want this system to be used by anybody who didn't want to use it. We're not trying to monitor people–we're trying to help people in their everyday lives.feedback

Marcelo Claure - Sprint

In the case that somebody becomes aggressive, we are going to be the one with the most enticing offer. But so far things seem to be very responsible, which is good.feedback

Marcelo Claure - Sprint

The model is not sustainable where we are buying devices at high prices and then were just basically providing interest-free financing to customers.feedback

Tim Cook - Apple

Our teams have been hard at work for years on something that is important to all of us: the future of the smartphone. The first iPhone revolutionized a decade of technology, and changed the world in the process. Now, ten years later, it is only fitting that we are here, in this place, on this day, to reveal the product that will set the path for technology for the next decade.feedback

Jim Cramer

Why does all of this matter? Go back to the original narrative at the top. Say you bought Apple for a specific event, the iPhone launch. That event occurs. Predictably, there are a ton of analysts who say, Ehh.' That's what they do. So now you're going to be shaken out because you hear 'Ehh' and you know you made a mistake and now you've got to cut and run tomorrow. That's why I say the best thing to do would've been to do nothing.feedback

Thomas Husson - Forrester Research

The iPhone X will not disrupt the smartphone market the way the initial iPhone revolutionised mobile and many other industries. However, coupled with iOS 11 innovations, it will reinforce consumers' and brands' loyalty to the Apple ecosystem as well as illustrate the evolving role of smartphones in an increasingly connected world. With its new iPhone X flagship device, Apple aims to set it apart from competition in the premium smartphone market – a segment that only targets affluent consumers.feedback

Brian White - Drexel Hamilton

It's great for Apple because they're starting to segment the market more, and now the consumers have more options.feedback

Toni Sacconaghi

If you have consumers that place orders in early November, and they can't get a phone until 2018, then I think it matters. There are other attractive offerings out there. And while ecosystem loyalty is high, if you were hoping to get this great new phone in September, and now you're waiting until 2018, I think you'll get .... switchers.feedback

Toni Sacconaghi

I think if you read reviews, they're unequivocal. The device is highly attractive, the screen is the best screen ever seen ... and ... the phone feels really terrific in one's hands. I think this will be a significant phone. We've believed for a long time that there's pent-up excitement around it, and that there'll be a significant number of upgraders.feedback

Josh Brown

Could you get a 5 percent pullback or 10 percent pullback? Yes, but the same is true for any stock and the overall market. Well, what are you waiting for?feedback

Timothy M. Ghriskey - Solaris

It's sell on the news. They didn't talk about the evolution of Apple beyond the iPhone and into artificial intelligence.feedback

Karl Ackerman - Cowen Group

Our supply chain work indicates a significant increase in iPhone X units for December quarter.feedback

Paul Coster - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

The stock reacted favorably on the news and rightfully so. Apple's adoption of Vision on mobile may entice other [manufacturers] to follow suit.feedback

Gregory Passewitz

This gives the psychological impression to the customer that the price is not $0.20 or $0.50 or $20, but less.feedback

Brian White - Drexel Hamilton

Apple took the iPhone franchise to a whole new level with the iPhone X, pushing the company deep into the ultra-luxury smartphone market with the highest priced iPhone in the company's history. We walked away even more encouraged by this new iPhone cycle, Apple's future in AR [augmented reality] and the company's ability to distance itself from its competitors.feedback

Amit Daryanani - RBC

This year's event marked one of the most highly anticipated product announcements in recent years, and from a product perspective, the company did not disappoint. We think the new form factor and net new features/capabilities (wireless charging, AR enablement, 3-D sensing) added to the flagship device will drive accelerated device upgrades within AAPL's install base combined with increased switching activity.feedback

Ollie Hayler

While we don't expect biometric adoption to happen overnight, the proliferation of biometric technologies in consumer devices such as the Apple iPhone will result in consumers becoming more familiar and comfortable with the technology. As such, biometric verification of identity on a personal device will, in one way or another, become a standard identification process.feedback

Xia Giang - Apple

Maybe I'll buy it. Money isn't an issue, but I want to know if my friends like it. I'll let them try it first and then decide.feedback

Duncan Clark

China is hugely important, both in terms of its market size now and future growth. China is also a global test bed.feedback

Wang Yang

We will continue to stock the cheaper models or we won't sell much.feedback

Tim Cook - Apple

No other device in our lifetimes have had the impact on the world that the iPhone has. Nothing else has put so much power in people's hands than the iPhone. It's truly amazing how much the iPhone impacts the world each and every day.feedback

Peter Garnry - Saxo Bank

Against the backdrop of Apple we are seeing a drop in the hardware and semiconductor subsectors, which make up some 40 percent of the EM IT sector. There is some retreat but there were very strong expectations leading up to the iPhone launch -- even Apple shares have fallen -- but we think that overall, the environment for IT stocks continues to be positive.feedback

Jim Cramer

I haven't heard anyone say, Nah, I just bought the [iPhone] 7.' I'm either hearing, Yes, I'll upgrade,' or 'I hope someone will buy it for me. That's incredible. That's what I call consumer product amore. It's the most beloved device I can remember.feedback

Peter Boocvkar

This stock rallied right up into the unveiling of this. There was chatter going into this that there were going to be glitches and delays...We priced this phone in already.feedback

James Titcomb

Power from the mains creates a current at a transmitting coil in the charger. Phones that use wireless charging feature their own receiver coil attached to the battery that picks up the magnetic field. Alternatively, phones can use an adapter or case that features the receiver coil and plugs into the phone's charging port.feedback

Lyndon Smith

With 3D, if you get very high resolution, which is what we're trying to do, it's almost like a 3D fingerprint. Even identical twins have the same genetics but their faces will be slightly different due to experiences in their lives. Maybe they got little scars, or maybe they got moles, or whatever it is on their face. Every face is unique.feedback

Brett Beranek - Nuance Communications

You would be able to increase the levels of accuracy–just by having a stereo view of the face–by several orders of magnitude from where we are today with 2D facial recognition.feedback

David Burke - Dover

Over time, we expect to see DSPs [digital signal processors] specifically designed for neural network inference and training.feedback

Brian Blau

Some of these components are just darned expensive. There's just no doubt about that.feedback

Gene Munster - Loup Ventures

It's a really big deal for the wearables category for Apple, but it's not a big deal for the company.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

Our mission is to make the world more open and connected. We do this by giving people the power to share whatever they want and be connected to whoever they want, no matter where they are.feedback

Brian Merchant - Motherboard

The problem with a phone,' Steve Jobs said in 2005, is that we're not very good going through orifices to get to the end users.' By orifices, he meant carriers like Verizon and AT&T, which had final say over which phones could access their networks.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

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 executive staff and was engineered into being by a team of brilliant, unfathomably hard-working programmers and hardware experts.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

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

Kim Forrest - Fort Pitt Capital

It's great to have a product but we'd have liked it sooner rather than later, more like the beginning of October or mid- October.feedback

Harlan Sur - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

We believe Broadcom is a leader in wireless communications, enterprise storage, networking, and broadband with broad-based exposure to positive trends.feedback

Harlan Sur - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

Micron and other industry participants should benefit from increased DRAM demand (unit demand and potential increases in content per phone) from Apple in 2H17 and into 2018. We anticipate Micron benefitting from the new iPhone launches and remind investors that the iPhone 7+ contained 3GB of DRAM vs. 2G of DRAM for the iPhone 7 and prior iPhone versions.feedback

Harlan Sur - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

As we have discussed in prior research, we expect Broadcom to benefit from increased dollar content in the forthcoming iPhone models, including the new OLED version that we expect to use Broadcom's touch control technology. In total, Broadcom has pointed to a 40% increase in blended content in the new iPhone models, and we believe the company's non-RF content (wireless charging, touch controller, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth, GPS) is increasing by $3-$4 per iPhone versus last year's models.feedback

Brian White - Drexel Hamilton

We continue to believe Apple's stock will not only benefit from the upcoming iPhone cycle but also the company's capital distribution initiative, attractive valuation and potential new innovations. As such, we do not believe Apple's run will end with this week's iPhone event but still has attractive upside potential.feedback

Mo Jia - Canalys

Apple really needs to launch a very innovative product this time around. It has its work cut out.feedback

Geoff Blaber - CCS Insight

What we see with Apple is they may not be first with these hardware features but it tends to be how they are integrated with software. That is what creates the special Apple value.feedback

Ben Thompson

Apple may be a de facto monopolist for most of the world, but in China the company is simply another smartphone vendor, and being simply another smartphone vendor is a hazardous place to be.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

The iPhone X is the blueprint for the iPhone's new hardware direction. An OLED display and the new design is likely to standard on future iPhone models, but Apple must first tackle the challenge of obtaining sufficient supply. A staggered introduction of OLED technology and the new design enables Apple to steadily ramp up scale in its supply chain and maximise profits. The relatively high prices of the iPhone X are a necessary and important mechanism to control demand in the near term.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

The iPhone X and iPhone 8 models are very strong additions to Apple's portfolio that address increasing competition from Samsung and others. Rivals will be watching how quickly Apple can meet demand for the iPhone X and begin to build margins on a new design with new components.feedback

Phil Schiller - Apple

This is the first iPhone created for AR. The cameras are individually calibrated in the factory which makes a huge difference for AR plus AR benefits from the new A11 Bionic chip.feedback

Tim Cook - Apple

It's truly amazing how much iPhone impacts the world each and every day. Our intention with iPhone has always been to create something so powerful, so immersive and so magical, that the hardware virtually disappears. Over the past decade, we've pushed forward with innovation after innovation, bringing us to this moment, when we can create devices that are far more intelligent, far more capable, and far more creative than ever before.feedback

David Pogue

Tapping the skinny little virtual keys on the screen is frustrating, especially at first.feedback

David Pogue

Some of the criticisms are justified. There's no memory-card slot, no chat program, no voice dialing. The browser can't handle Java or Flash, which deprives you of millions of Web videos. Apple says that the battery starts to lose capacity after 300 or 400 charges. Eventually, you'll have to send the phone to Apple for battery replacement, much as you do now with an iPod, for a fee.feedback

Stuart Culverhouse - Exotix

The stiffer sanctions won't change anything in the near-term. The new embargoes are incrementally tougher, but diplomacy meant they had to be compromised to an extent that they are very unlikely to change minds in Pyongyang.feedback

Jim Paulsen - Wells Fargo Asset Management

This sort of brings to light to me at least that underneath the stream of all the bad news, whether it's government, hurricane, geopolitical, nuclear war, underneath that, it's an awful good fundamental underpinning. It's basically an economy that's doing well.feedback

Jack Ablin

I think expectations are very high as they always are for Apple, but they always seem to deliver. It's a company that tended to over-deliver, and I think the 10-year anniversary is meaningful. That's like 70 in tech years.feedback

Peter Boockvar - The Lindsey Group

It's Apple-specific. It will only have an influence because of the size of its market cap, nothing more than that.feedback

Paul Hickey

As far as tech is concerned, Apple is cheap relative to the tech sector. If it rallies that would be good for the overall technology sector.feedback

Paul Hickey

As far as the iPhone is concerned, it's been gaining share all year long. It's got solid momentum, so people are moving to Apple even before the iPhone is coming out.feedback

Peter Boockvar - The Lindsey Group

We've seen many times when the Apple stock rallies into the unveiling of a new phone, and after that it sells off or consolidates. Apple is up almost 40 percent this year. If history is any guide, it sells off on the news. …The bar is very high here for Apple to deliver. To get a market cap stock up this big, up 40 percent this year, takes a lot. Now it has to deliver.feedback

Jim Paulsen - Wells Fargo Asset Management

I guess the thing with Apple is, I don't think it's going to have a lasting impact, but it certainly could have trader impact, headline impact. There's a lot to like in the sense that we've got very low yields, very low inflation and solid real growth, and the likelihood of it accelerating.feedback

Jim Cramer

In this country, we know that the phone companies will subsidize the purchase. In other countries, the status of the iPhone could increase sales. There's something to be said about a market that views things positively, even as it's no time to celebrate in the real world that is oh-so-different from stocks and bonds.feedback

Amit Daryanani - RBC

This year's September event is easily the most anticipated iPhone launch given expectations for the first major form factor change since the iPhone 6 cycle and excitement surrounding a host of revolutionary features/capabilities alongside evolutionary updates surrounding the flagship device. Although expectations remain high, we think the event still has potential to surprise investors on the upside, particularly as some of the new iPhone features are demonstrated live.feedback

Ben Schachter

We remain bullish on Apple and continue to be in the 'supercycle' camp on the next iPhone, as well as its ability to drive app sales. We expect the next iPhone to include innovations that will be clearly visible, marketable, and useful for the mass-market globally. We think that with expected innovations around AR [augmented reality], wireless charging, viewable screen size, OLED [display], and more, the next iPhone is clearly poised for its largest upgrade cycle yet.feedback

Gene Munster - Loup Ventures

Fast forward to a few weeks from now – there's going to be some wringing of hands as people start to think about what the March and June quarters of next year look like. The idea of an LTE watch. The watch is 3 percent of Apple's business today and if they allowed it to be untethered to the phone ... it creates a bigger opportunity. We think it will essentially double the size of that business. I believe this phone will deliver on a much higher growth rate for the iPhone.feedback

Tim Cook - Apple

But if you look across our product lines, you can buy an iPad today for under $300. You can buy an iPhone, depending upon which one you select, for in that same kind of ballpark. And so these are not for the rich. We obviously wouldn't have over a billion products that are in our active installed base if we were making them for the rich because that's a sizable number no matter who's looking at the numbers.feedback

Steve Troughton-Smith - Apple

It was very clear that iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X were the marketing names. It's theoretically possible that Apple could change that marketing name for the iPhone X, especially if it's not going to be finished for another month as per rumors. But I like to deal with hard evidence, and right now iPhone X calls itself iPhone X.feedback

Jonathan Gruber

As best I've been able to ascertain, these builds were available to download by anyone, but they were obscured by long, unguessable URLs. Someone within Apple leaked the list of URLs to 9to5Mac and MacRumors. I'm nearly certain this wasn't a mistake, but rather a deliberate malicious act by a rogue Apple employee. Whoever did this is the least popular person in Cupertino. More surprises were spoiled by this leak than any leak in Apple history.feedback

Jerry Kang

It will take a few years until Samsung's competitors catch up with Samsung to overcome challenges they're facing now with many materials and components.feedback

Michael Sherwood

Most people are going to think we pay per sensor what people pay per cellphone.feedback

Jony Ive - Apple

That feels, I don't know, encouragingly healthy, because I would be concerned if we lost that sense of anxiety. I think that would suggest that we were not as self-critical, not as curious, not as inquisitive as we have to be to be able to be effective and do good work.feedback

Tim Cook - Apple

We didn't plan our growth, and then when we saw our growth, we were so engrossed in trying to push things forward that we didn't spend time to really develop the workplace. We've done a really good job of working around it, but it's not the way we want to be working, nor does it represent our culture well.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

[With today's smartphones] we have a dominant form factor of a rectangle, as big a screen as possible and as big a battery as possible. The software [which runs on old devices as well as new] is now as important as the hardware, so there's less need to upgrade.feedback

Tim Cook - Apple

It was the first time we'd ever run that particular play, and demand percentage turned out to be different than we thought.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

They are starting to extract additional revenue from users, even if they keep their phone for longer.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

It's a broad overarching trend in the industry. People are keeping their phones longer. Fifteen years ago you had flip phones and candybar phones, there was a real imperative to upgrade every 18 months because things were moving forward at tremendous pace. That innovation has faded off.feedback

Tim Bajarin - Creative Strategies

I think AR is big and profound, and this is one of those huge things that we'll look back at and marvel on the start of it.feedback

Jan Dawson - Jackdaw Research

It has to get the balance just right, giving people a compelling upgrade in the successors to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, while also offering up a higher tier. It has to do that without alienating people who can't afford or justify spending the higher price for the new device, but don't want to settle for second best.feedback

Jan Dawson - Jackdaw Research

Much of the timing of that growth will depend on the supply constraints.feedback

Jan Dawson - Jackdaw Research

It has to supply the new premium phone in high enough numbers so that if there's a big demand shift from the standard models to the new one, it doesn't end up depressing overall sales while there are supply constraints.feedback

Gene Munster - Loup Ventures

The trading history over the past four years is a little bit difficult to look at – just what happens when the product's announced to three months after. But the biggest runups it's had going into a product cycle would suggest, typically, that you have a tail-off. And I would expect the same thing.feedback

Consumers now have one more thing to factor into their monthly phone bill. If you can wait until, say, the holiday season or possibly next year to get a new phone, it might save you money. Try to improve your credit score as much as possible before buying.feedback

Steve's legacy is not going away. They'll continue to drive the company around Steve's vision. But this is, more and more, becoming the company of Tim Cook. And that's why in that sense they can use the 10th anniversary as a critical juncture. It takes on more of Cook's vision and personality – guided by Steve Jobs's vision.feedback

Gene Munster - Loup Ventures

I think people won't recognize that it was a defining event until probably two years from now.feedback

Jan Dawson - Jackdaw Research

If they're able to launch new iPhones next week that move the needle in terms of growth rate, it goes a long way toward answering those criticisms about Cook's ability to lead Apple.feedback

Andy Hargreaves - Pacific Crest Securities

It is a big deal. They have this spaceship new campus where they're holding the event. It is the 10th anniversary. It's supposed to be the most innovative phone they've come out with in years. If they disappoint, it will be a mark on him.feedback

Scott Anthony - Innosight

Everybody still wonders if there's going to be a Jobsian twist and we just haven't seen it. It's hard to denigrate someone who has grown Apple the way he has grown it, but I think the world hungers for an Apple that continues to truly surprise and delight us.feedback

Andy Hargreaves - Pacific Crest Securities

It's unclear to me whether or not AR is a big game changer that can drive software sales or App Store sales for a long period of time.feedback

If [the iPhone 8 is] delayed and consumers feel they won't get it until 2018, you run the risk that people will look to other devices.feedback

Tony Sacconaghi - Sanford Bernstein

If the phone is materially constrained once we hit the holiday season, post October 15, then it's worrisome.feedback

Oliver Barker - Sotheby's

Celebrity sales have always been a fixture for auction houses, but the connection with a specific personality, or endorsement of a designer or photographer, is more valuable and engaging for today's audience than ever before. More and more people like to see a sense of individual character coming through and to identify private passions from works. In the iPhone era, we have all become collectors of images, in a way. And particularly with living creatives like Mario, the immediacy of access to his life and work appears to have made him even more covetable.feedback

Toni Sacconaghi

We continue to believe that Apple offers attractive risk reward.feedback

Michael Olson - Piper Jaffray

We surveyed >400 U.S. iPhone users and found that 16 percent expect to upgrade to a new iPhone this Fall, compared to 15 percent last year, while 24 percent will 'maybe' upgrade vs. 29 percent last year. We also found that the % of iPhone users on a version two years or older (at time of upgrade) is almost identical (66% vs 67%) compared to our 2016 survey.feedback

Gene Munster - Loup Ventures

The simple reason is this: The stock's up 50-plus percent in the past year because investors have been anticipating the return to growth of the iPhone. As soon as that product comes out, people are going to shift their focus to the March and June quarters of next year. That's when the iPhone cycles are made or missed. So there's naturally going to be some people taking some profits.feedback

Gene Munster - Loup Ventures

This gets pretty wild pretty fast. Apocalyptic is probably a good way to describe it. If bilateral trade between the U.S. and China goes away, American store shelves are empty. You're not going to have anything to sell in Walmart … There'll be no iPhone 8 for you.feedback

Mark Moskowitz

Considering consumers' sensitivity to the price gap, we explore how Apple could offer purchasers of iPhone 8 a free subscription bundle of 1-year of Apple Music and 1-year of 200GB iCloud storage. Such a move could make a $1,000+ iPhone 8 seem more within reach, with the $156 in services serving as a quasi-discount or rebate, and the bundling also could generate bigger subscription revenue streams if users renew after year one.feedback

Ian Fogg - IHS

I think this fall AR is going to be enormous because of what Apple is doing with ARKit on the iPhone. Sony has an enormous opportunity to ride on the back of Apple with 3-D capture and AR capabilities on their new smartphones because like Apple, they are using regular smartphone camera technology to do 3-D capture and augmented reality, which could be mainstream, scalable and quick to bring this to market.feedback

Geoff Blaber - CCS Insight

Apple's ARKit is what AR badly needs. With a sizeable addressable market consisting of iPhones and iPads with A9 or A10 chips (iPhone 6S and beyond), it offers developers immediate scale and incentive to invest.feedback

Jim Cramer

That's pretty much a recipe for the internet of things stocks, which could use a boost after several days of relentless selling. I remain adamant that the best places to be are the companies, especially the [semiconductor makers], that can capitalize off voice technology and the upcoming iPhone launch.feedback

T. Michael Walkley

Our surveys indicate strong consumer interest in and anticipation for new iPhones anticipated to launch in September.feedback

Susan Prescott - Apple

All those features really help it be a better overall productivity machine. It's becoming more realistic for more workers to use iOS as their primary device.feedback

Jim Cramer

Don't overthink the question of who wins from this new iPhone iteration. Apple wins. The pullback in Broadcom is a clarion call to buy it if you don't own some already. Broadcom is an amazing company and its stock is just too cheap considering that the Apple ramp is about to occur.feedback

Jim Cramer

So here's the bottom line: while Harvey dominates the headlines, takeovers and an accelerated iPhone launch explain a lot more of today's gyrations than the storm of the decade. Always remember that what matters to normal people isn't necessarily what matters to the stock market.feedback

Jim Cramer

I think that's wrong. They could be both buying opportunities. Let me specifically spell out the possibilities for Broadcom. That's been a horrendous stock for the last couple days. It makes the most intellectual property in the iPhone of all the suppliers mentioned.feedback

Steve Hui

This can mean for the same spending, you get more points.feedback

Steve Hui

Use your card everywhere, for big and small items. I use my card to pay for coffee. Those points add up.feedback

Steve Hui

The easiest way to collect more points is to get the card that matches your spending habits. If you spend a lot at supermarkets, there is a card that can earn triple points per dollar. If you drive a lot, that same card can earn you double points per dollar at the petrol pump. Another card offers double points at restaurants and bars.feedback

The forthcoming generation of Samsung Galaxy and iPhone handsets claim to make big steps forward, but recent history hasn't delivered much that's revolutionary,'. Seb James will be hoping Tim Cook (Apple's CEO) has something big up his sleeve.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

Having image stabilisation on both lenses takes Samsung one step ahead of Apple, but at present there don't appear to be any plans to support augmented reality features – something we expect to feature prominently on the next iPhone.feedback

Ben Wood - CCS Insight

By launching the Note 8 now, Samsung gets the oxygen of publicity ahead of Apple's highly anticipated iPhone 8. Samsung will be hoping that a trio of competitive high-end products – the Note 8, S8 and S8+ – will appeal to anyone looking for a new Android phone. Furthermore, these devices are certainly good enough to turn the heads of a few iPhone owners who fancy a trying a different device.feedback

Toni Sacconaghi

People spend hours on it every day, so they can justify paying more for what they believe to be the best device.feedback

It is very clear that HMD Global needs to position Nokia branded devices as an alternative option for consumers who don't want the expense of a top of the line iPhone or Samsung Galaxy device. Nokia remains a widely recognized mobile phone brand and HMD needs to capitalize on that as quickly as possible. The Nokia 8 is another important milestone as the company adds breadth to its portfolio of devices in an effort to broaden its appeal to consumers.feedback

Court documents indicate that Google paid Apple USD 1 billion in 2014, and we estimate that total Google payments to Apple in FY 17 may approach USD 3 billion. Given that Google payments are nearly all profit for Apple, Google alone may account for 5 percent of Apple's total operating profits this year, and may account for 25 percent of total company OP growth over the last two years.feedback

An actor playing a Nazi soldier took out his phone to refresh the news and announced that Trump was president. I was actually seeing this come out of the mouth out of an actor dressed in a Nazi uniform. Immediately, I excused myself because I felt like I couldn't breathe anymore. I started sobbing. It was shocking. It made me really question how we could reach a point where our country is so divided.feedback

Amandla Stenberg

Amid all of the chaos in the world right now, it's so important that everyone actively works to preserve their mental health so that we're able to heal and create change. I got rid of my iPhone, and that was essential in preserving my mental health. Now I have a flip phone that I just use to talk to people and hear their actual voices.feedback

Neil Shah - Apple

It is a win win for Apple as it will drive up the average selling price of the device because they will be more expensive. It will cater to the niche market of health and fitness users who don't want to carry their iPhone when they go for a run. It will also be good for enterprise use cases.feedback

Aditya Chakrabortty

The elite pretends it saved us from ruin. But while the rest of us endure austerity, the economic and business model that created the crash remains intact. All history now, isn’t it? The credit crisis that began in August 2007, the ensuing banking crash and global recession. One bumper episode from the long-ago past, when the iPhone was a newborn and Amy Winehouse still made records. Now done, dusted, reformed and resolved. Or so one assumes, from the official self-congratulation.feedback

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

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

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
