  11. 11. • The markets in which Apple operates are highly competitive. • In the smartphone sector, developed markets have nearly reached saturation and will grow only modestly in the next few years. • Competition in the emerging markets is more based on price, product features and relative price/performance, rather than product quality, reliability, and the strong third-party software and peripherals’ ecosystem that Apple provides. • Apple with its high-end but overpriced devices is likely to lose this emerging markets’ battle to cheaper Android devices.
