spin out software assets. shares are down on the latest earnings report. first, to our lead -- a suite of upgrades for apple plus flagship product -- the iphone seven has landed. it is water resistant, dust resistant with better battery life and cameras. wearers of the watch will be able to swim and play pokemon go from their list. and apple ditched the headphone jack come a showing off new headphones called air pods. apple stocks got a slight boost off the announcement will stop joining me is one of our bloomberg reporters who broke several of the product ahead of the event and cory johnson, who joins us from san francisco. what has been the reaction from folks who attended the event out there? i have seen more reactions online then talk to people here.
6:03 pm
this is a carefully liked it crowd of journalists and members ,f the technology world principally apple employees. so their views are not typical of your typical consumer. they are much more likely to be excited about some developments the average person might not make a big change in their life -- a technologist might see how difficult that is. so we will see how the consumer reaction is. the event was geared toward getting the crowd to be excited. out want the press to walk waving apple pom-poms and i have no doubt that the fan boys will aid them as we try to fight them. you were live blogging the entire thing. you broke a lot of the news we saw happening today with a eighth to the phone and a date to the watch. walk us through the most significant of a juicy -- significant up dates you see.
6:04 pm
mark: i that the iphone seven plus was a big data in terms of the camera system. it's interesting they are shifting one of the key features in its software up date later this year. i found that quite odd but this is the one where they map out where people are in the picture and blur the background. advancement in terms of the processor is significant as they way with the future of their processor lineup will be. i felt the air pods were interesting and the price when came in a little lower than people were expecting at $160. i think made sense for them to launch altogether. the dual camera processor, you can only get that if you buy the digger iphone. what do you think of that move? there's a technology reason behind this. maybe they want to push people
6:05 pm
to trade to that larger phone. what do you think? inasmuch as people are paying great attention to the quality of the lenses they use when they buy a phone, i think of side the world of the technology press, people are going to say their picture is a little bit better than my own. i don't think the average user looks for that stop that said, some of the hyperbole apple offered, when tim cook described as the gold standard for smartphones, i think that's right. it is necessary for apple to have the phone that can do the best if only so they can say their products are the best and command the operating margins that give them a vast majority of the industry's profits. is all about the apple image in a burnish that by having the top of line product for the industry. emily: let's talk about the air pods committees new the wireless headphones.
6:06 pm
are we seeing an important new product category? mark: i think apple is looking for new ways to generate profits and i think these will help them with that for their products business are two booming categories of these footprint. sales flow so showing that they can produce new products beyond their current lineup is significant from an investor perspective stop letting it's interesting to see apple actually increased the price of both the new apple watch series two and the iphone seven plus by $20 each over their predecessors, so that was interesting. apple did announce other headphone makers are working on making wireless headphones of their own. thatare going to have pods plug into the lightning port sold with the phone but are headphones around
6:07 pm
apple music? no is the short answer. i don't think apple music is going to be a necessary component of that them. i think the ease-of-use is there in the way job own and makers of headphones don't have. theseo much easier with apple devices and i think that's important to stop ease of use is the calling card of apple whether you go back to the early days of the apple ii or the macintosh. but it has gone by the wayside for a lot of apple products stop if they can make the processes your, they will sell more. and thewith this device announcement of this q1 shift that is supposed to make it easier, i think we are seeing the first big integration of the
6:08 pm
beats hardware stuff and the apple hardware business. emily: you can start pre-ordering all of these products on september 9 stop our apple reporter, i do want to break this down in more detail and take a deeper look at the new iphone specifically because apple has been under pressure to breathe new life into its like ship product. will the latest of dates be enough to reverse two consecutive quarters of sales declines? our two longtime apple watchers. enough to reignite sales? guest: there are a couple of interesting things. there's a lot of discussion around the lifestyle extension and replacement for phones. i think it's moving from 26 months to 28 months.
6:09 pm
so there are a large portion of the install base on this accent six plus and if they hold true to the upgrade cycle, they are in line for a refresh somewhere in the next two or months stop that will be a big part because it's a big of great. if you look from x 27, it might not the viewed as big, but it is a big one. and the other one, they are bringing the installment plan to china and i think that god overlooked. motivatorignificant for a lot of customers in these markets who have seen year-over-year increases and think it might be time to join the program because they are doing a lot year-over-year for emily: so they are expanding their up rate to china because it has only been available to the u.s. thus far. we see china actually offer iphone that the discount so that
6:10 pm
they are cheaper in china than the u.s. for the first time ever stop do you see these new iphones mark there's a lot of technology packed in there. do you see them reversing the i thinkclined? guest: the year we are comparing it to come we had growth of 30% to 40% and that's tremendous in this saturated market. if you look at the long-term trend, it has been a steady upward climb and once we get past the hump of the iphone 6, we will see a return to a modest 10% type growth. i don't inc. it has that much to do with product. we have a billion customers nearly. are are satisfied, they upgrading the product and buying more and more accessories, so the revenue interest going to grow. the camera is better than
6:11 pm
ever and we see more and more people carrying an iphone and not hearing regular cameras in our. but they only have the dual processing camera on the bigger. what do you think of that? guest: there are others selling dual lens phones and they're not shipping them in huge volume. there's a lot of innovation that goes into it, so i think it would have been hard even if apple wanted to bring it to the iphone seven, it may not have been possible. they: how many people have bigger screen versus the smaller screen? guest: the bulk of the bases on a six or six as. some moving toward the larger screen and i think there's part of the market trying to figure out which size they want. the bigger phones are not the .argest portion of that mix
6:12 pm
the question is will the camera be what moves ebola? will they be satisfied with the screen that they have and the internal component of rate to the cpu and other components? guest: the reason people by the bigger phone is not because it has more processing power. the people who don't buy the bigger phone, it's because of the bigger screen. it's a limitation and an enabler. some people have that need and some people don't. we saw ae way -- surprise when they went to a smaller screen in the roddick sold better than apple expected. it was backordered for a long time. the bulk is in the middle right now. how big a feed is the water resistant and dust resistant part? guest: they are not the first to
6:13 pm
do this. it is a challenge to manufacture something of the precision they do and bring it into be waterproof. it is not just water resistant, it is actually waterproof. it has become a hygiene factor. it is something that becomes something every has to have. i think waterproofing is one of these things like having a high resolution does. emily: battery life is still an issue. guest: that's a huge deal and not get a lot of airplay. the battery life keeps getting better even though performance is increasing. not get a lot of airplay. they talk about between two and four hours of use out of device that personally, i don't feel the pain of battery because i'm somehow always in the green. emily: i feel the pain every day for guest: if you look at studies around features a drive
6:14 pm
purchase, camera and big screen rates low. there estimates might be conservative. i think they might get that are gains and of consumers catch on, it's a huge pain point. that is one thing that might make a big difference. guest: the big phone does have amazing battery life compared to the others emily:. it does. my husband has that one. we're going to dive into the apple watch coming up after this quick break and stop plus hp enterprise confirms a nearly $9 billion software spinoff, so what is it investors don't like? we will discuss later this hour. and nintendo getting a huge used on the news that super mario run is coming to the app store. this is bloomberg. ♪
6:15 pm
6:16 pm
6:17 pm
emily: as we just mentioned, apple released a new watch called series two. mark gorman got a first look at the new watch at the event in san francisco earlier today. we are here in san francisco looking at the new iphone and apple watches. you can see the new apple watch -- series two. new running and walking unction now at the end things from the new gps. pacing option. it looks very cool. a new collaboration with new models from nike.
6:18 pm
operations in addition to the phone. emily: here to break down the highlights are my guess that's i want to talk specifically about the watch waterproof, gps tracking, new software and what do you think about the new watch? guest: let me begin with something different -- they gave us a hint of how well the product is doing. they say it rose in rank and became the second best-selling watch in the world and they put it between the rolex and fossil. if you look at the numbers come you can see the range, so we did that and it turns out to be between 3.8 billion and four $.5 billion in the first thing. focus on that for a minute
6:19 pm
because i made an for the first 12 months of its lifecycle. that's within the ballpark, assuming the higher end. but let me that in perspective. it's more money than tesla makes in this product is considered a flop and worth, generally speaking. emily: that's a great point. why don't they just tell us what the number is? always saidhave they don't want to give the competition the sales figures. so they will say a great category. out.n figure it i'm sure you can do enough backwards math to figure it out. quite understand the logic. product andeeper
6:20 pm
i've been bullish on it all along. look at the performance improvement we are in one year. it's a dual core gps waterproof at nine's next? we are years into the iphone and it took a couple of years to get traction. it was not a billion units right away. so this is fascinating. emily: will this become more guest:niche product mark i think it would be a leap to say everybody owns one i think we are seeing a growing category around not just fitness but the fashion element. they did not position themselves against fitbit or garment. to us totrying to get think of it as a watch product. guest: i'm going to call it and
6:21 pm
say we are all going to have smart watches. feelinging the same that this is the kind of product, we want to have computers on our wrist. it's a universal need and it going to be there. emily: i do want to talk about gaming because mario is finally coming to the iphone. pokemon go is coming to the watch. there was a big emphasis around gaming with the iphone and the watch. what do you make of it? guest: starting with the watch, there hasn't been a lot of rake out games stop i'm going to use it like crazy to catch pokemon on my wrist. is opening up those visual opportunities for developers. the performance of grade will see more opportunities for your wrist.
6:22 pm
now the floodgate can open and we will see. example.a good hopefully between pokemon go and mario, they are learning to invest in the mobile area in a way that brings people to places with accessible devices we have in our pocket every day. of a newes this open category of customer apple did not have before? guest: i think the nike thing is even bigger. it never happened in the steve jobs era. it's a big change. emily: we will see if it ends up taking share from fitbit. always great to have you guys here on the show on the most important day of the year.
6:23 pm

6:34 pm
achieve any great rate of pickup is that it can help stabilize their revenue. you might pay a base level of $32 a month depending on what model you have and that allows you to up rate your iphone every single year quite a smart way of retaining customers. emily: how big of an impact can this have on revenue from greater china? guest: i think this could stabilize china. history says there's a lot of top tier customers in china that are willing to pay for the product. fore is a barbell strategy they want to meet the needs of that most manning customer and targeteds a squarely at that most demanding customer and they want to have a full set of products for all different kinds of products but still skewed toward the midrange and high-end it could help revenue because in the next two quarters, apple will skew a

6:37 pm
year and keep it aimed price point. that is not an easy thing to achieve and we will do that trickling down in the stock and the earnings of the suppliers in the coming months. a lot of people in these wide chain, it is a punchy and aggressive place to stop a lot of these guys come out of the investment banking world. it is something which hopefully means makes no difference to us. we have to talk about the samsung recall -- they got a had start getting their phone out for this iphone was unveiled. recalling millions of the galaxy note tablets up how do you see that playing into the dynamics of who buys what this holiday quarter? guest: this is tough news for samsung. we are talking about recall that could cost up to $7 billion and
6:38 pm
it's difficult to rework these products. a lot of them will just have to be re-manufacturers -- remanufactured stop this opens up what tim cook has talked about as switchers, people apple can woo over to the left arm. if you are looking for a large phone, you some doubt if you are a samsung customer and apple gave you a nice reason to take a look at their product line today samsung has to move quickly and they also have to be price aggressive or service aggressive in order to make sure they retain that profitable customer who is interested in the large foreign factor product. and there are still questions about the root of this exploding battery issues & music. thing with the galaxy note tablets will stop we will be closely following that. think you so much.

6:42 pm
