READ THIS NOW: The smartest thing you’ll read about the Apple Watch and Apple’s future

Apple Watch Features

Following the unveiling of the Apple Watch earlier this month during Apple's big iPhone 6 event, tech blogs and news sites were all over the place. Some called it a gorgeous device that would shape the future of smartwatches and wearables. Some called it a travesty that should not exist. Of course, Apple devices that break into new territories are always incredibly polarizing when they debut. We've seen it with the iPod and again with the iPad, and now we're seeing it with the Apple Watch, despite the fact that we currently know precious little about it.

Do yourself a favor: Ignore the knee-jerk reactions and thoughtless punditry. If you want to read something about the new Apple Watch, there's really only one article you should look at.

Don’t Put iOS 8 On Your iPhone 4S

Don't Put iOS 8 On Your iPhone 4S

Apple assures us that iOS 8 , which goes out to the public today, will work on iPhones reaching all the way back to the venerable 4S . Technically, that's true. But as Ars Technica found out the hard way, subjecting your elderly iPhone to new software can be downright cruel.

Credit Suisse estimates iPhone 6 earns lowest ever margins but predicts 14 percent revenue growth

apple-s-profits-on-the-iphone-gross-profit-gross-margin_chartbuilder

Credit Suisse analysts have estimated that Apple is making a smaller margin on the iPhone 6 than on any previous model – but predicts that the impact will be offset by year-on-year revenue growth of 14 percent, reports Quartz.

The iPhone 6 costs Apple $350.60 to produce, all in. Apple typically receives $599 on the retail price of $649, leaving it with $248.40 in gross profit. That’s 41.5%. Still very healthy, but not at the levels of previous models.

In contrast, the iPhone 5s left Apple with $274.30, giving it a 45.8% margin. The two-year-old iPhone 5 gave Apple $293.70 per unit, or 49% …

The reduced margin is attributed to Apple holding the retail price constant while spending more on components – most notably the larger displays.

However, say the analysts, the introduction of the more expensive iPhone 6 Plus pushes up the average selling price – and the company estimates that increased demand for the new models will lead to 14 percent growth in year-on-year revenue.

Apple announced a record 4 million preorders for the iPhone 6 in the first 24 hours, with the new models seeing rave reviews. Foxconn is said to be struggling to keep up with demand, despite manufacturing more than half a million iPhones per day.
