Investors Buz   –  Global Markets Roundup

The “iPhone 7” is not just a highly anticipated gadget for consumers; it is also a potential catalyst for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) stock. Since iPhone sales started slowing down, Apple stock fell deep into the doldrums. Investors are hoping that the iPhone 7 launch, which is expected to take place this September, will inject some much-needed optimism into Apple stock.

Few would have predicted that a smartphone would help build the largest company in the world, but that’s exactly what the iPhone did for Apple. With tens of billions of dollars of revenue coming in from.

If you want to buy the iPhone 7, you will likely have some decisions to make. Just like the “iPhone 6,” three will be more than one model from which to choose.

When Apple introduced the iPhone 6 back in the fall of 2014, it had two models—the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch “iPhone 6 Plus.” According to leaked images, the iPhone 7 might actually come in be three different models: a 4.7-inch iPhone 7, a 5.5-inch “iPhone 7 Plus,” and a 5.5-inch “iPhone 7 Pro.”

The biggest question for Apple stock investors is how many people will buy the iPhone 7. Because sales have been slowing down in recent quarters, some take this as a sign that consumers are waiting for the iPhone 7 before making their next phone purchase. On the other hand, Apple stock bears argue that sales are down simply because iPhones have lost their appeal.

Either way, here’s something to note: a lot of people bought the iPhone 6 when it came out in September 2014. In fact, 10 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models were sold in just three days after their official launch. Among those consumers, some bought their iPhones on two-year contracts. (Source: “First Weekend iPhone Sales Top 10 Million,” Apple Inc., September 22, 2014.)
