Cook admitted that many people need bigger displays. But others, Cook said, “value other factors,” such as resolution, colour quality, white balance, brightness, reflectivity, display longevity, power consumption, portability, and compatibility with programs. Competitions like Samsung have “made some significant trade-offs in several of these areas so that you can send a bigger screen,” Cook said. “We would not ship a bigger screen iPhone while these tradeoffs exist.”
White’s contact, meanwhile, also had some fascinating insights. White added that he stands by an earlier prediction that Apple will establish the iWatch before the end.
Meanwhile, in another report issued Friday, White said he visited heaps of iPhone retailers and resellers in Shenzhen, China and found that the iPhone 5s was “surprisingly” still in stock most places. The iPhone 5c was also extensively accessible.
“In some cases, the space gray colored iPhone 5s was out of stock but the champagne gold was available, just the reverse of what we have discussed in the U.S. market,” White wrote. “In our perspective, we consider Apple may have allocated higher stock of the champagne gold iPhone 5s in China versus the U.S. marketplace.”
Meanwhile, one facility creating the iPhone 5c “appeared to be busy” during his visit, but data from China-based carriers and retailers pointed to “soft demand” for the colorful, more affordable iPhone. The analyst added that orders for the iPhone 5c supply chain will probably have to be reduced later on.
The glitch seemed to primarily influence those using Apple’s Numbers, Pages, or Keynote apps, but the BSOD was seen by others while using the camera, FaceTime, Safari, and other apps. In videos posted to YouTube (below) like the one, the BSOD lasts only a second or two before the display goes black, and the Apple logo appears, signifying a reboot.
“I am having exactly the same issue myself when using the pages program to open my saved curriculum vitae and after that trying to e-mail it to someone,” another 5s owner chimed in. “If I do that then go to open the notes app that I have a typed message I wish to copy and paste in exactly the same email, whenever I paste it in the e-mail the screen goes blue and restarts.”
“Myself have a sense this really is only a glitch that apple has to correct not something from a corrupted copy that soon as installed from our old cellphones,” he continued. “Most of us seem to be having the same issue with the exact same programs. I really hope this is fixed shortly.”
Reports continued with a Wednesday note from someone who’d not opened iWork apps but experienced the BSOD.
“Now is stuck on the loading screen!!! wont boot up!! Sad for me since I got my 5S just now and its already completely unusable!” Now lamented.
