Is Apple Missing The ‘JOBS’ touch?

TWALKITOUT: Trends for the most valuable company across the globe are not looking in favor as yet again we see a dip in Apple’s share price, the lowest in past 11 months. Apple’s basement has been experiencing a lot of tremors after Mr. Steve Jobs’ demise. Although, it’s not a proven fact but could be a sign of bad luck for Apple. Trouble started with apple making a move.

Firstly, iPhone 5 came into the market, with its own goodness, but was seen just an inch’s extension to its predecessor. Many experts found it not matching the expectations from a new apple release.

Secondly, Apple’s drive to launch its own maps fell in soup gathering trouble around the world for its misrepresentations and not standing well against opponent Google Maps. It was a public failure until recently with corrections and users switching back to the old.

Thirdly, the rising demand for the Android phones that offer more flexibility and style heated up the cooking of innumerable rumors including Apple developing a cheaper iPhone. The latest indication that Apple is seeing sluggish demand for its iPhone 5 emerged in stories published Monday in the Japanese newspaper Nikkei and The Wall Street Journal. Both publications cited unnamed people familiar with the situation saying Apple has dramatically reduced its orders for the parts needed to build the newest iPhone because the device isn’t selling as well as the company hoped.

Lastly, the smaller iPad, the up-beat product of the world’s most valuable company, not performing much as expected is crunching the company’s profits.

All in all we can say that it’s not a complete picture yet in front of the buyers, Apple is known for keeping secrets and delivering quality products that people have loved sticking to. But at the moment, we can witness Apple missing Steve Jobs. Apple is pretty much missing the founder’s style and conviction.
