VANCOUVER, BC (July 20, 2011) Dominion Lending Centres Clearlease Reports Apple’s (NASDAQ:APPL) Peter Oppenheimer spoke July 19, 2011 and, while he failed to mention the words “iPhone” and “five” in the same sentence, he did reveal that a “major product transition” is coming in the fall of which he could not speak further. That transition, of course, is the taming of the iPhone 4 in favor of the still-secret iPhone 5. During the conference call Apple also revealed record sales figures for the recently ended quarter, including a 142% growth rate for the iPhone over the year-ago quarter. That means that late period iPhone 4 sales are trouncing the previous year’s late period iPhone 3GS sales by a margin of 2.5 to 1, revealing the iPhone 5 to have more market staying power than its predecessor; the late arrival of the long awaited white iPhone 4 may have also been a contributor to the iPhone 4′s popular longevity. Additionally, Apple shared that its cash-on-hand position has swelled to $78 billion dollars, giving the company a staggering warchest with which to launch the iPhone 5. That pile of cash would be enough to buy rival Dell in cash and still have enough to finance a private army or two. But instead Apple is expected to use a portion of its warchest on promoting the iPhone 5 in ways which otherwise wouldn’t be possible.
For starters, it means Apple can manufacture as many iPhone 5 units ahead of launch as it wants, ensuring there are no inventory shortages which have plagued Apple product launches in the past. Accordingly, Apple has reportedly placed an initial order for fifteen million units, which should be able to get through the first few months of sales without a hitch. The swelling cash position also means that if it chooses to be aggressive on price in the face of “free” competing Android phones, it can go there. Already, Apple offers the iPhone 3GS for $49 and could keep the iPhone 4 around on Verizon and AT&T to do the same. But the more aggressive move would see the iPhone 4 retired and the iPhone 5 lineup expanding to include a sub-$100 or sub-$50 iPhone model. Such a move would significantly reduce the average selling price of the iPhone lineup overall, as far more users would pot for a $99 iPhone 5 than they would for a $99 iPhone 4, thus reducing sales of the traditionally priced $199 and $299 iPhone 5 models in the process. But Apple could opt to take a hit on per-unit margins for the sake of attempting to drive iPhone marketshare up past the majority mark in the hopes of reaching the stratospheric marketshare numbers enjoyed by its other iOS products like the iPad and iPod.
The money also means that if Apple doesn’t like the speed at which Verizon and AT&T are rolling out their barely-there 4G LTE networks, it could easily subsidize them. Such a move could set a dangerous precedent for future dealings with the carriers, however, unless Apple negotiates some kind of favorable concessions in return in order to make it a fair exchange. Apple could also consider buying Sprint for what would represent less than one-fourth of Apple’s cash on hand, in order to get the iPhone 5 onto Sprint in a more favorable manner and then proceed to transform the company into a mobile carrier experience which is up to Apple’s standards as opposed to the current iPhone carriers, which have been largely derided by iPhone users as offering un-Apple-like experiences. However, such a move would likely injure Apple’s relations with existing iPhone partners Verizon and AT&T, the latter of which is already set to acquire T-Mobile. Alternately, Apple could buy Adobe for about the same price as Sprint, a move which would allow Apple to bring and end to development of obsolete Flash content, which Apple has been keeping off its iPhone and iPad devices from the start.
Finally, the cash on hand means that Apple can, simply put, run as many television ads for the iPhone 5 as it wants. It can subsidize carrier-specific iPhone 5 ads run by AT&T, Verizon, and any other iPhone 5 partners in order to ensure that the iPhone 5 is positioned front and center in the 4G LTE on-air wars and other carrier marketing battles. With nearly all Android marketing presence coming from carrier-sponsored ads, if Apple can bribe the carriers into running iPhone 5 ads instead, Android ads would dry up and the rival Android OS maker would then be in the position of needing to market Android based phones itself. But these are all mere possibilities for how Apple could invest in the iPhone 5. The only thing we learned today for sure is that the iPhone 5 will arrive this fall.
