Apple says its new iPhone X the "biggest leap forward to the original iPhone." But with sales flagging, and the competition already outpacing Apple with smartphone innovations, the question investors have is whether the leap is big enough.
Apple has debuted its largest-ever iPhone to compete with Samsung, which has led the trend toward big-screen phones. European customers will have to dig deeper into their pockets for the new devices than those in the US.
Shares in Apple's Asia-based concept firms have tumbled after US President Donald Trump launched a broadside against the tech giant demanding it should move production to the US if it wanted to avoid tariffs on imports.
