But on the other hand, Apple is finding that maneuvering within the company is fraught with no shortage of challenges. From patent troll lawsuits and iPhone 7 clones already hitting the streets, it seems that we can't go a week without some sort of obstacle emerging in Apple's path. And to top it all off, now comes word that competition within the Chinese smartphone market is fiercer than ever before, leaving Apple in a position of playing catch-up.
