Apple lost its surprise factor for media events almost completely. We have seen the iPhone 5C and the iPhone 5S and knew almost all improvements before hand. The only thing we did not know was the pricing for the iPhone 5C and how Apple positions the colorful iPhone in their marketing. Is this why the Apple stock fell after the announcement? yes.
Either Apple does not care anymore, or they just cannot close the holes. Either way, investors are not happy and the Apple stock dropped over 2%. The reason for the drop is in my opinion the lack of a surprise.
Don't get me wrong I think the new iPhones are great and the iPhone 5C has huge potential to become a mass market phenomenon.
