Apple, once again, has a bad case of the iPhone jitters

Apple is making more money than ever, but it doesn’t seem to be enough. Not with conspiracy theories swirling around Apple’s secret slowdown of older iPhones while a cloud of uncertainty looms over its high-priced iPhone X.

It’s a reality check for a company accustomed to an unflinchingly loyal customer base. Apple expected buyers to embrace the iPhone X as a revolutionary device worth its $1,000 price.

But it appears many Apple fans aren’t impressed enough with the iPhone X to ante up. Many are instead opting for other recently released models selling for $200 to $300 less.

And consumers disillusioned by the slowdown of older devices may be even less inclined to upgrade now. Apple is replacing old batteries for just $29, which should obviate the slowing.
