AAPL Financial News Weekly Roundup: 4" iPhone 6c for Second Half 2015, Apple Pay gets Decals and More

Apple stock (NASDAQ: AAPL) fell again, losing about 3% over the course of last week. Share prices opened the week at $127.12, reached a weekly high of $128.04 during trading on Tuesday and closed Friday at $123.25. Perhaps the slip is due to rumors over manufacturing woes facing the Apple Watch, though an industry source has told AppleInsider that the supply issues facing the Apple Watch are normal for any product about to go to market, and were expected and prepared for. The Watch will be available for pre-order and to try on at Apple Stores next Friday, April 10. If you can't wait that long, Belgian company, Underside, has developed an augmented reality app called ARWatch that lets you preview the Apple Watch.

Apple Pay decals were made available to merchants to raise public awareness of the service's availability.

Other news items of the week were mostly positive, nothing you'd think would contribute to a 3% slide:

Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) stock dropped slightly in value over the course of last week. Shares opened Monday at $129.25, reached a high of $129.56 on Wednesday, and closed Friday at $126.60.

The most exciting news of last week, though Apple has not officially commented on it, is the company's foray into the automobile industry. What started as far-fetched speculation after a spate of mysterious minivan sightings and an email from an unnamed Apple employee claiming that Apple would "give Tesla a run for its money," now appears to be reality.
