  • AAPL Touches New Record High on iPhone 5 Launch


    On Friday, shares of Apple reached a new all-time high.

    On what was the first day of preorders for the freshly-unveiled iPhone 5, AAPL exploded to the upside trading at $696.82. If AAPL doesn't reach $700 today, it easily could early next week should weekend sales of the iPhone 5 prove to be as strong as they look to be.

    As of this writing, it is believed that Apple's initial inventory of iPhone 5s for September 21st delivery is already gone. Shipping times have quickly ballooned to two-weeks and we're less than 12 hours into the preordering process.

    To go along nicely with the Apple stock surge is a new bevy of compliments from leading Wall Street and tech industry analysts like Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster. On Friday, Munster chimed in on what he thinks the iPhone 5 will mean for consumers.

    "We believe the sentiment around iPhone 5 was significantly better than that of the iPhone 4S," Munster said this morning. "Based on the same study by Investing Analytics, we believe that 73% of tweets about the iPhone 5 during launch day were positive compared to 51% for the iPhone 4S launch. We believe this is to be expected given the phone is redesigned while the iPhone 4S was not."

    Munster calls the iPhone 5 is a veritable "Rolex" in a market full of "Timex" products and will like enjoy sales of 6 to 10 million units in the September quarter.

      I have owned the 3G, 3Gs, 4, 4S (what a waste on that one). I own two Ipods. One 2nd gen and 4th Gen. I also have an Imac and the Ipad2.. Definitely was a fan of apple but dont think the product is what it was and they are running out of ideas to produce something different.
      And your gonna end up with an iPhone 5 just face it already

      While I agree, I have no interest in the iPhone 5, a lot will buy it. Some are going from the 3GS which would be a huge improvement. Those that have a 4 ok maybe, 4S waste of money to upgrade. That is my opinion. Doesn't mean I will talk trash about the person that is upgrading. Their money, their choice.

      @jrhudson, Do you think everyone on modmyi only uses Apple products? A lot of us use different devices, from companies other than Apple. So maybe that's why they are here. It's not unthinkable that someone has both a S3 and a iPhone...I use both iOS & Android devices daily.

      Apple fans want to use "can't afford it" when somebody doesn't like a Apple product. So they can afford a S3, but not a iPhone that is the same price. Makes perfect sense.

      Seems like this response was more uncalled for than the idiotic statement it responded to. Apparently, both of you have a lot to learn

      I don't get the people that just want to say "If you don't love Apple then leave!". This USED to be a tech site about iPhone mods and hacks and it's turned into some strange fanboy defense mechanism. From a technical aspect there is nothing amazing about the new iPhone. Software-wise it's basically the same as the 4s. If you want a bigger screen for $200-400, or whatever the price ranges are, then go for it. Why bash the people that don't understand the relevance of the device though? Kind of childish and catty. Some people actually like to use forums for discussion, debate, and the exchange of ideas/experiences, not just to blindly praise a company that only wants your money.

      Me......

      I've have both the IP4S and a Galaxy Note. (Prior to that I had the SII, which I kept a little over 1 month. I thought it would solve me lack of a 4S jailbreak itch). It was just two similar, yet inferior for my needs, to the iPhone 4S, so it got the boot.
      The first month I had the Note, I carried both phones around with me (two separate numbers). I couldn't be without my iPhone. Second month I got a sim adapter and put my primary number sim in the Note, to be forced to use it realistically as my daily device. That lastest about 3 weeks and then I started back using my iphone as my primary phone and carrying around the Note for show and note taking. This went on until May when the 4S untethered Jailbreak became available. After that it was a wrap and the Note has been trapped in my work bag ever since, only seeing occasional internet and email usage or as a remote for my Samsung LED.

      My point is I've tried for almost 1 year, started last summer with the Galaxy tab to compare with my ipad 2, to really like and use Android/Samsung products. (The tab was returned within 30 days-best buy return policy..ha). The entire Android/Samsung experience just has not worked out for me. They are nice products and they look great, but android just proved to be a headache for me. Will I upgrade to the IP5 yes, why? Well, because Apple is finally giving me everything that I wanted in a phone (LTE, somewhat of a bigger screen, and faster wifi that will finally work flawlessly with my Apple TV, all the apps I still know and love (not to mention spent a small fortune on, without a lot of fluff and unnecessary software/bloatware. I'm probably going to go through withdrawals until a jailbreak is available, but I'll live with it. I am disappointed in the lack of tru inovation by apple, bc it does still look almost the same as it did before (4 and 4S). Honestly I've not found anything else that fits my needs better. Now I just need to decide if I really want to pay $400 to get locked into another 2 year contract and keep both lines. Or upgrade my original number for full price....OUCH!!!! I hate you Apple for making mediocre products that may not have the flash and big screens like others, but dammit you know how to make a great phone that provides people with what they want.

      I'll agree with that, if you believe that everything said concerning "insert said product" is constructive, critical and meant for forward discussion. I don't get that from 90% of the post on here. Also, the tech and mod portion of this site are still going strong.

      That being said. I see why Apple isn't going for homeruns. I think a lot of phones out there have pointless tech crammed into them. I'd rather have something that improves on the general things that I use, works well and has focuses on being a solid product. It comes down to user preference, that's about it.

      Everyone keeps saying the iPhone 5 doesn't have anything that's "new and impressive" what are you people expecting? Im really confused as to what you expect to get out of a phone? What do these other devices that you speak of do that the iPhone 5 doesn't do that's so "new and impressive" ?

      iPhone 5 is not just a larger screen. I keep hearing people saying this.
      - 4" Screen
      - A6 processor (best in the industry) I can't wait for benchmark tests!
      - LTE without loosing battery life!
      - Improved audio over 4s

      Reason why I like my iPhones:
      - Ease of use, my 3 yr old knows how to navigate it. She can take pictures and view them, and plays multiple games. She can do all this from lock screen.
      - Quality product (software and hardware)
      - 100,000+ apps. I have an investment $300+ including music.

      NFC - So what stores actually support this? I can honestly say I am not aware of ANY, unless I'm seeing it and not knowing what it is.
