Apple Shares Tumble on Weak iPhone 8 Preorder Reports

Apple Watch 3 Is Already Broken

Apple's iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are powered by A11 Bionic SoC six-core processors and improved GPU, which is 30 percent more efficient than the GPUs in last year's models. The iPhone 8 starts from Rs. 64,000 and its Plus variant starts from Rs. 73,000. KGI securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has recently issued an investor note claiming that Apple is now producing less than 10,000 units of the iPhone X. Despite what analysts are claiming, Apple iPhone X will be available for pre-order on October 27, with sales expected to start from November 3. "Another is they are delaying their decision until they can physically get their hands on the iPhone 8".

To make wireless charging work, the 8 features a glass back, something last seen in the iPhone 4S in 2011.

CNET senior photographer James Martin took 2,000 shots with the iPhone 8-Plus camera over three days, and came away impressed with their texture detail, saturation and noise levels, as well as (thanks to its HDR abilities) the details it delivered for highlights and shadows. According to financial analysts, there's evidence that pre-orders of the iPhone 8 tracking below industry expectations - likely tamped down by consumers waiting for the iPhone X, which is slated to start shipping November 3. It appears that more customers looking for a new iPhone would rather hold out for the iPhone X than buy the iterative iPhone 8.

"Apple has painted us a picture of what its mobile future looks like, so is it any surprise the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus seem boring by comparison?", reads one review from Engadget.

Still, the iPhone 8 remains a fairly straightforward update of the iPhone 7, which itself was a fairly straightforward update of the iPhone 6S. Instead of Apple's drop dragging other stocks down with it, he says, it's more a case of Apple responding to liquidity changes faster than other stocks do. The problem here seems to be the OLED display for the iPhone X, which seems to have a lower than ideal yield rate.

Latest reports confirmed that Apple is still having a hard time incorporating the Face ID technology and this remains a hurdle for them until now. While the device's price tag is expensive, the iPhone X is a stunningly designed smartphone that features a almost bezel-less display and new facial recognition technology. The production schedule is a month later than what analysts expected in August and two months later than the expectations in June. Although they count as new entries in the iPhone line, the iPhone X looms over them like a shadow. The smartphone will be available for pre-booking on various e-commerce website including Flipkart, Amazon, Infibeam and various authorised Apple outlets across the country. The 256GB model comes at Rs 1,02,000 setting a new high for mainstream smartphones' pricing.

The iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X support Qi wireless charging, along with Apple Watch Series 3. Among other new capabilities, both the new iPhone models can shoot 1080p videos in 240 frames per second. The pre-orders for the same will start on September 15.

The iPhone 8 is about $50 more than what the iPhone 7 cost at launch.
