Apple launched the iPhone 7 with a lot of expectations. Users did not get anything new in Apple’s iPhone 6. Therefore, it was important for Apple INC. to come up with new features in the iPhone7.  However, users still did not get anything worth noting in the iPhone 7, at least that’s what most of the users think.

It is almost up by 10%, taking its sales figures to the highest of 2016 so far. But Q4 is turning out to be topsy-turvy for the company. The sales of Apple’s iPhone 7 seems to be falling with every passing day.
