Everybody knows that Apple is big enough to move markets. This year, that’s been a boon -- but what if the iPhone 5 falters?
The phone offers a bigger screen; it’s faster; and it’s the lightest smartphone in the world. What the iPhone no longer offers? Google Maps, which used to come pre-installed.
Apple unveiled its new operating system today, and no more Google Maps -- Apple has its own map app now. But reviews for the software have so far been...less than stellar.
Apple says it received two million orders for the iPhone 5 in the first 24 hours of availability. That is good news of course for Apple. It's also good news for shipping companies like Fed Ex.
