Everything you need to know about the new iPhones

Shares of Apple are up slightly as it begins selling its 2 newest phones. Is this make or break time for the tech titan?

By Motley Fool Investor Beat Sep 20, 2013 12:54PM
Shares of Apple (AAPL) are up half a percent as its newest phones, the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C, go on sale worldwide Friday.

Million Dollar Portfolio Advisor Ron Gross has heard that sales are pretty strong, especially for the gold iPhone 5S, which has already sold out in some stores. But the most important factor to the continued success of these phones is what's inside them -- specifically, the 64-bit chip.

Literally the dumbest thing in the World is waiting to be one of the first to own something that will be available for years to come. It's a reflection of our current values, our lack of them.

Sooner or later, folks will realize a phone is basically still just that. The cool, look at me factor will eventually wear off and when it does, watch out below.
