Everyone's eyes are on iPhone X, individuals couldn't care less how costly it is.

China is an exceedingly important market for Apple that generates the company billions in revenue each quarter. It says that Apple's growth this past quarter is only temporary and it won't be able to sustain it in the fourth quarter.
