Re: Apple's market is cyclical
Every manufacturer has a cyclical product line ans they and competitors release new product. Nothing new there.
What we are seeing is a product maturity effect as the rate of new and useful features declines the second string manufacturers catch up and compete on price. This is a threat for Apple and Samsung which have been at the high priced end of the market. Apple has the fans who will continue to pay more but Samsung is less secure.
We will benefit by paying less for decent phones as they become just another commodity.
Apple needs to come up with something new and stunning, always very hard to keep doing that.
