From the WaPo

Apparently, the market is saturating, so all the companies in the sector are slowing down a bit.

Regardless, apparently only Apple is "facing stiff competition" and "lagging behind"

The analysts they quote and paraphrase insist Apple must bring new products to market in order for those analysts to raise their estimations of Apple, because apparently it's solely Apple's responsibility to innovate for the rest of the industry and bring out new products for the rest to copy

These are the same analysts, btw, who apparently didn't take into account the softening market and were disappointed that Apple didn't forecast $46B next quarter as they wanted, but instead managed only a measly $42B estimate

Meanwhile, having posted a record quarter and meeting/beating these same analysts' estimates for that quarter, Apple continues to laugh its way to the bank ...
