iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C to be most successful Apple launch ever, says analyst

An analyst has said that he expects Apple's upcoming iPhones to set a new record for the company

Apple's expected 10 September event, which will reportedly see the unveiling of the iPhone 5S and a low-cost iPhone 5C, could be the most successful Apple launch ever, an analyst has said.

Apple will soon update its iPhone range.

Trip Chowdhry, Global Equities Research's Managing Director, told Benzinga that he expects the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C to set a new record for Apple.

"The new iPhones will be massively successful," he said. "This will be the most successful product launch ever in the history of Apple."

Chowdhry has based this prediction on several factors, including his research that shows many smartphone users in India, Malaysia and Thailand buy cheaper Android phones but are more likely to buy a cheaper iPhone if one was available.

He also thinks that the ongoing patent battles between Apple and companies such as Samsung will help Apple differentiate its products from the competition.

In addition, Chowdhry has suggested that the upcoming biopic of Apple's late co-founder, Steve Jobs, could "evoke positive emotions toward Apple and its products."

Despite his confidence in the next iPhone, Chowdhry has criticised Apple for lack of innovation. "Innovation does no exist at Apple," he said. "Where is Apple TV? Where is iWatch?"

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
