A few weeks ago, I was talking about Apple Inc smashing all the records on the stock market. However, I am sure they were not expecting their shares to go down after the launch of iOS 6 and the iPhone 5.
Ok, so there’s been a few issues with iOS, mainly maps. But when i took this screen shot last week I was a bit shocked.
After the overnight release of the iPhone 5 to 22 more countries including New Zealand it… It appears that Apple shares are making up some lost ground.
This is a screen shot taken today, showing a steep increase over the last few days.
But still, the dramatic drop after iOS 6 was pretty surprising wasn’t it? Are our standards too high?
The suspense and build up before the iPhone 5 and iOS6 was worth more to Apple on the share market than the days following it. Maybe this helps explain why Apple was so secretive of everything, including when they would open up online for outright purchases of the iPhone 5.
Secretive or not, it seems that the iPhone 5 release went off in New Zealand last night without a hitch. Our two major telcos did a great job. The live updates and photos on Twitter from the boys up north were great and I meet some cool fans down here in Dunedin.
Don’t forget to keep us posted on your feelings about the iPhone 5.
