2. Analyst: ‘iPhone mini’ pricing to be between $250-$300

Although analysts are far from reliable when it comes to predicting Apple’s movements, we can’t help but bump in to a few along the way. The most recent to make the headlines is one analyst’s prediction that the low-cost iPhone will costs somewhere around $250-$300 off contract. Virtually half the price of the iPhone 5.

3. Tim Cook call lowdown: Cheaper iPhone, Larger Displays, Apple’s success and future all mentioned

Tim took time out of his busy schedule to answer questions on a call organized by Goldman Sachs. He was asked a variety of probing questions. I found his answers very calming. Apple is still Apple.

4. Rumor: Apple will make iWatch

Yet another rumor to make the headlines this week. Many sources and publications are certain that Apple will release an iWatch. It’s not a matter of if, but when.
