American technology juggernaut Apple, makers of the popular iPhone brand, failed to impress global investors, as its share value lost more than 2%. The price plunge is coming on sentiments that there was little or no exclusive feature seen on the new iPhone model.
Another strong fundamental weighing heavily on the prized tech stock is the COVID-19 pandemic. Recently, Apple has seen its stores disrupted negatively, as lockdown modes due to the COVID-19 pandemic and consequent decline in the mobility of people, begin to take toll on major economies. Although, as much as Apple is a technology company, it is not known for selling its products online; rather, it is popular for its in-store experience.
The latest model iPhone 12 with a 6.1-inch display, will be available for USD 799, while a ‘Mini’ version with a 5.4-inch screen will be slightly cheaper at USD 699. A ‘Pro’ version with three cameras and a new 3-D ‘lidar’ sensor starts at USD 999, with the largest ‘Pro Max’ starting at USD 1,099 and going up to USD 1,399.
