These four charts show why Apple's China troubles aren't going away anytime soon (AAPL)

Apple's problems in China are likely to linger, HSBC's Erwan Rambourg said in a new research note. Wealthy Chinese are starting to shift their brand preferences to Huawei from Apple, Rambourg said, citing a proprietary survey.

Apple's impending video service is getting a lot of hype. But even if it's smash hit, the video service won't be able to make up for Apple's declining iPhone sales, Jefferies analyst Tim O'Shea shows in a new report.

Angela Ahrendts' departure from Apple may end up being a blessing in disguise for the iPhone maker. A big part of Ahrendts job was to ...
