Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL) stock closed yesterday trading at $148.12, down 0.96%. The drop has partially been attributed to a widespread thought that Apple iPhone 13 updates are almost similar to iPhone 12. Mind you, a greater percentage of the physical characteristics and for the iPhone 13 resembles its predecessor.
However, the company remained adamant that the latest iPhone series will sell greatly and do interesting tasks with the users. “iPhone 13 has a faster chip, faster 5G speeds, a brighter OLED display and the most advanced dual-camera system ever in an iPhone, and with all these upgrades the iPhone 13 has a better battery life,” Apple’s vice-president Kaiann Drance said.
Having scaled the battery capabilities and its processing powers, the company is confident the latest iPhone series will do well against the competitors’ products.
“We are so excited for iPhone13,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook. “For all its power and capability, we can’t wait to see what our users can do with it.”
Yesterday’s drop on AAPL stock continued the bleeding that had been going on for the past two weeks. After hitting an all-time high of around $157.26 in hopes that the Apple event will make thrilling products, Apple stock has retracted approximately 5.47%.
However, iPhone 13 was key for the company as the new processor chip will be tested by more products. Consequently, subsequent products will be guaranteed a tested in-house processor chip.
