    Apple stock down almost $5 today. Better hope the slide doesn't continue.

    Since the introduction of the first iPhone, how many times have Apple's stock price drop just to end up rebounding?

    If you look closely you will see the whole market was down today not just Apple.

    Not true. Google was up. Imagine that! On new iPhone day Apple's strongest competitor in the mobile OS market outperformed Apple. Explain that?

    Google has 100s of different programs. Not just computer, smartphones and OSs. You really can't compare google to apple. I know your gonna tell me I'm wrong but it's the truth.

    AAPL is in an entirely different investing sector than Google... and to judge either company's long term performance solely on today's closing price vs. yesterday's is a fool's errand.

    It could be that apple is expecting a decline in sales due to the fact that other companies are providing good competition.

    I don't think getting up earlier would've made a difference. In fact I know it didn't cause I was up at 2:55 and kept hitting refresh till right at 3:00 when it went on line. By 3:02 I had it in my cart and as I went to check out the delivery date had changed from 1-3 business day had changed to 7-10.

    At least Apple is not Blackberry today...
    Or the Samsung department in BestBuy... the folks sitting at the counter were just talking to each other. One could have fired off a shotgun in there and no hit anyone.

    There were several articles regarding a shortage of the ID sensor assembly.

    Also, why was there no pre-ordering of the 5s.

    Something doesn't smell right. lol.

    I am more curious then anything else as the shortage luckily didn't affect me getting a phone. Of course the 1st time I actually have a upgrade available when the phone is launched they don't allow pre-ordering. Never fails. lol
    So now it’s a full-blown conspiracy against YOU?

    Wow. I can’t even respond.

    It's about some form of miscalculation that resulted in stores not getting enough supplies. You can argue that fact as much as you want but this year they sent out less units to stores compared to previous years. Verdict : NOT PREPARED.
    The fact of the matter is that there are NEVER enough Apple products on launch day. No matter how many they manage to get to the retail outlets, demand will ALWAYS exceed supply. It’s been that way for every iPhone and iPad product launch since the first one.

    The problem with this (^^^^^^) is that since the very first iPhone launch, they have NEVER had enough iPhones or iPads to meet the demand on launch day.

    You lost me. Because the delivery date slipped while the product was launching, you passed on it? The date slipping is nothing more than an indication of the great demand.

    I thought since they pushed it back till October online , I'll just head to local AT&T store in the morning and pick one up there.
    But didn't know that AT&T would get ZERO 64gbs
    Great demand AND low supplies is the cause of later delivery date

    Yes they always run out. But read on other sources that report that this year the total quantity of supplies was very low. No one says they'd be able to cover every single order but if they have sent out the same amount of iPhone 5 they did last year at launch , more people would have had them at launch.

    I think Apple dropped the ball on this launch. It seems they put the cart in front of the horse. How can you launch a product and have such a small supply?

    I would be so angry if I waited in line and walked away empty handed! Then have to wait weeks to get it in the mail.
    Pretty sure they planned this that way. What better publicity after their stock has been getting destroyed than to make it seem like there is an incredibly overwhelming demand when the true fact is they just didn't have much stock for the launch

    Are you serious?? TBA was not saying that at all. Don't take everything you read so seriously. People do make jokes.

    Anyway, I'm quite disappointed that I wasn't able to get my iPhone today, but it's hard to say how prepared/unprepared they were ....

    I don't think that's how they planned it. They don't just go for the sold out thing. They could've released another million units and they still would've sold out. I honestly think they didn't think production would fall behind cause of the ID sensors.
    They will still make big bucks. Just have to wait a bit longer for the second and third wave ( shipments )

    Or lack of supply... It was reported on multiple sites in many stores they had less than 5 units. Of course it is going to sell out with that small of supply in stores. Even android devices would sell out with that amount of supply lol

    I think in that case it being apple and all they should have ramped up production a little sooner or pushed it back another week or two to have more stock.

    I disagree that Apple dropped the ball with this launch. People wait in lines every single year on launch day for the new iPhone. Some will wait hours and be lucky enough to walk away with one, while others will get close but end up getting turned away when supplies run out or the store that they went to no longer has the one that they wanted. This year is no different than any other year except for the fact that there was no preorder for this new iPhone as there have been in the past.

    Agree, I was up at 2:45 and by the time I checked out the date had already slipped a few days and only increased throughout the day.
