Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL): Beginning of the Downfall?

Apple .(NASDAQ:AAPL) is taking a hit as investors grow concerned over the delayed sales date for iPhone X. Apple won’t start accepting orders for the new, $1000 iPhone before October 27. Apple had anticipated to start selling the new iPhone much earlier than the given date. Last night, Apple had to face embarrassment after the face recognition feature, the defining functionality of iPhone X, failed to work.

The presenter had to try twice to unlock the iPhone X. Analysts also believe that Apple has hit the saturation point. It is unable to justify the skyrocketing prices of its devices. Users have better options available for less rates in the market.

For this year Apple 's revenue will be around 227,61 billion USD. This is according to the average of the analysts' estimates. This is slightly more than 2016's revenue of 215,64 billion USD.
