A software development kit of this nature would allow the iphone to become the ultimate mobile computing solution, ideally aimed at businesses iphone is a revolutionary piece of hardware. However, apple must be careful that it does not waste an incredible chance to effectively access the wireless smartphone industry with the iphone. Currently, there is no hardware interface superior to the iphone, and apple must ensure that its accompanying software flows along the same vein. While apple has currently made deals with several movie studios, it must also ensure that the iphone serves as a practical solution for businesses. While it is important that the iphone provide entertainment, it must also be a functional business tool, and an open source software development kit will assure that developers will have the freedom to make sure that the iphone realizes its full potential. If apple does appeal to businesses in this way, it is a very realistic assumption that the company could capture at least a 30% market share and increase its net profits by many t history and its initial release, apple’s iphone has garnered an incredible amount of excitement throughout the world amongst both computer enthusiasts and technophobes alike. The iphone, apple’s first foray into the extremely competitive wireless telephone market, has captured attention with its revolutionary user interface. With one face composed entirely of a touch screen, the iphone is able to provide its user with both a convenient and familiar “qwerty” keyboard, or a widescreen cinema display, all at the touch of a finger. Furthermore, steve jobs recently announced during apple’s 2008 keynote that the company has signed contracts with several large name studios including disney, paramount pictures, and warner brothers, allowing it to provide iphone users a vast catalogue of on-demand movie r, while apple continues to offer consumers new and innovative products that provide an experience ever closer to mobile communications convergence, the computer manufacturer must keep in mind that entertainment is only a portion of the information that consumers process each day. While the iphone has been marketed as a “smartphone,” it does not include many of the functional business applications used by both the microsoft mobile and symbian operating systems, and therefore does not always justify its $400+ price tag for many consumers.

This, primarily, can be held to blame for apple’s current weak demand dilemma (it has been estimated using at&t’s year-end report that 18% of the four million iphones steve jobs claimed to have sold at the 2008 keynote are still sitting on shelves at at&t stores as ending inventory). In order to fully appeal to the vast public, apple must provide a way for iphone users to not only enjoy their favorite movies and music, but also access and manipulate documents in order to be useful in the professional realm. In order for apple to penetrate the smartphone market, it must combine its incredible distinctive competency, the iphone’s tactile and streamline user interface, with practical and functional ption of ideal companion to the iphone’s revolutionary hardware interface would be a software application set that would utilize the integrative features of the iphone that make it as comfortable and familiar as a home computer. Already, the iphone has been applauded for its user-friendly operating system based on mac os x, a system that has made apple computers increasingly popular for the last few years due to both its aesthetic qualities and its ability to perform advanced operations using a very simple interface. The most widely touted iphone application running within this operating system has been safari, apple’s native web browser that has been converted to the iphone in order to create an internet experience that is more computer-like than any other mobile browser yet developed. As dan frakes of macworld magazine notes, “if you've ever browsed the web on a pda or a mobile phone, safari on the iphone will be a joy to use. Ii a significant issue that arises, however, is that while browsing the web and watching movies are very popular consumer activities, the iphone stands little chance competing within the smartphone market if it does not develop applications that transcend vehicles of entertainment. The ideal product that would allow apple to reach its goal of attaining a 1% smartphone market share by the end of 2008 would be the release of an iphone software development kit (sdk) that would allow third party developers a chance to write applications that would effectively work with the most popular document formats of the business world including microsoft word (. While it is true that steve jobs has repeatedly announced that an iphone sdk will indeed be released at the end of february, 2008, apple’s commitment to the project has been widely in question for some time. If an sdk is released before apple adequately addressed iphone security issues, all iphone users could be at risk from malicious applications. Furthermore, for reasons of apple’s own marketing strategies, the manufacturer’s current progress of working out iphone security issues and the exact nature of the forthcoming sdk have remained highly classified. So, given the assumption that the vast majority of iphone bugs will be solved by the end of february 2008, i have created the theoretical framework for an sdk that would allow third party developers the chance to create the necessary applications that will enable apple to acquire and maintain smartphone market share in the long run.

While a sophisticated entertainment vehicle is indeed alluring, the iphone must also become a device integral in both the professional and recreational lives of its users in order to achieve true y of ’s resume indicates that it is clearly poised to capture a vast majority of the smartphone market. Furthermore, as steve jobs has noted in his 2008 keynote address, the iphone runs on a converted version of the operating system supporting apple computers, meaning that it has a very solid foundation to create functional applications in a much shorter amount of time than if it were creating a new operating system from scratch. This is one of the most crucial factors in the iphone’s destiny to become a successful smartphone. This alliance between the two companies will enable developers access to the crucial microsoft office formats, affording application writers the opportunity to allow the iphone to transcend the perception of “crafty gadgetry” and earn respect throughout the industry as a truly powerful and vital business jobs has already projected from the device’s initial release that he intends for the iphone to capture a 1% share of the smartphone market by the end of 2008. Assuming that jobs was honest about the amount of iphones actually sold in his keynote speech (as previously mentioned some analysts are skeptical on this point), apple e the iphone is actually much more than a typical smartphone, functioning as both a video and music player, it can be difficult to project consumer demand as it is a product that spans several different markets. To solve this problem, however, my forecast will ignore the personal music and video player markets as they are already highly saturated with apple products (100,000,000 ipods sold to date) and will likely be cannibalized by the iphone, an issue that steve jobs has dismissed saying, “if anybody is going to cannibalize us, i want it to be us. Vii so, assuming that the demand for the iphone will essentially be linked with the demand for smartphones i will assess the future of the smartphone market in order to substantiate projections for the iphone. Billion in 2003 to over $37 billion by the end of it is clear just from these two examples that the existence of a smartphone that is powerful, user-friendly, and flexible enough to run a wide range of applications would create immense demand in both the consumer and business realms. An open source sdk would allow flexibility of the iphone platform to support various functional applications, creating greater demand for iphones in nearly every industry as technology is further adopted by businesses to bring about higher levels of smartphone market is incredibly competitive, and apple’s remarkably powerful initial market entry will undoubtedly cause it to be the target of various competitive attacks. Because most of the previously mentioned competitors have been in the industry for a longer period of time than apple, they are largely run on open platforms, often catering to large businesses by allowing them to run their own, internally created programs perfectly tailored to suit the individual needs of each organization. Also, with the average product price for the industry coming in at just under $249, the iphone’s $399 price tag is perceived by many, especially cost-conscious businesses, to be extravagant. X this ad can be taken as both a negative critique of the weakness inherent in apple’s closed operating platform, as well as a jab at the fact that an estimated 20% of the more tech-savvy iphone users have illegally “hacked” their phones so that they can be used with any carrier, an issue that severally impacts apple’s revenue streams.

In all, because of the iphone’s incredible hardware interface, combined with the superior mac os x applications that will be written using the sdk, contenders will likely continue to wage a more vicious competitive war as time goes e iphones have only recently debuted outside of the united states, it is likely that the applications written using the sdk will be tailored to suit the needs of various domestic businesses. However, iphones were introduced in europe in late 2007 and are projected to be offered in japan in the near future, making it likely that the iphone will eventually become a global product. Because each country has very specific needs and issues, especially pertaining to communications, it will be necessary to tailor the iphone to suit the tastes and regulations of each respective region. Because of these qualities, i will use japan as an example of how apple will have to tailor the iphone operating system and applications to meet each country’s various needs. This means that any browser installed on a japanese iphone would have to be able to process both types of code in order to be perceived as useful for the internet. To best stimulate the creativity of the iphone developer community, apple should offer sdk to third party developers for free. Similar to the way video game system and the t-mobile sidekick manufactures have done, it would be best to take a cut from the applications that are written for the iphone. However, as more and more sophisticated applications are released for the iphone, apple will have to price these programs more carefully, as a mobile version of microsoft word would clearly constitute a higher price than a calendar plug-in. Thankfully, as with many aspects of the iphone, apple clearly has an advantage in pricing due to its twenty-five year experience releasing software and will likely use a pricing mechanism similar to that of its computer applications since it has continually marketed the iphone as a mobile gh the legal requirements for releasing an open source sdk would be minimal, apple must be careful in a few areas. Although an aspect that is not closely related to the sdk, apple will also need to be cognizant of the fact that as it expands iphone distribution to other countries, many of these countries have more stringent antitrust agencies, and do not favor apple’s current practice of forcing consumers to sign two-year contracts with one company (ie. Already, both france and germany have outlawed apple’s practices of tying with only one phone has been a publicly traded company since december 12, 1980, a status that will likely remain unchanged by the l e apple prefers to keep much of its internal operations highly classified, it is difficult to forecast the costs that apple will assume in the creation of its sdk and other iphone software related products. Income shown in the table below, the iphone’s various revenue streams would make it an extremely profitable segment of apple’s product portfolio.

157,500,000 $180,000,000 $855,036, 2007, it has been realized that although steve jobs claimed that he had sold 4,000,000 iphones, at&t has only activated 2,000,000 phones. So, assuming 20% have been “cracked” for use with other carriers and 670,000 iphones remain as ending inventory, it is still clear just how profitable the iphones are. It is clear then, that even as apple has not receiving the ideal amount of revenue due to unsubscribed phones, it still is collecting high sales revenues (initial purchases) industry total projected apple market share projected sales estimate of phones activated at apple stores activation fee revenues software revenues cumulative iphone subscribers apple monthly revenues provided by at&t total estimated revenues realized 10,000,000 $1,800,000,000 $4,898,437,500 qty sold 957,000,000 1% 6,250,000 2,812,500 $492,187,500 $112,500,000 $2,493,750, sales revenues (initial purchases) industry total projected apple market share projected sales qty sold 1,129,260,000 15% 169,389,te of phones activated at apple stores activation fee revenues software revenues cumulative iphone subscribers apple monthly revenues provided by at&t total estimated revenues realized. 225,050 $13,339,383,750 $3,049,002,000 169,389,000 $30,490,020,000 $114,464,616, sales revenues (initial purchases) industry total projected apple market share projected sales estimate of phones activated at apple stores activation fee revenues software revenues cumulative iphone subscribers apple monthly revenues provided by at&t total estimated revenues realized 390,456,000 qty sold 1,301,520,000 30% 390,456,000 175,705,200. Furthermore, for convenience, i will assume apple’s other products will remain stagnant and its future growth will be based solely on the iphone. Clearly, it is imperative that apple do all that it can to capture at least 30% of this zation, management, and staffing e the release of the iphone sdk will be largely based on independent third party developers, apple will be at an advantage as it will be able to reap the benefits of not needing to manage these employees. After extensive disagreement over the process and nature in which iphone software was to be developed, a group of hackers split apart from the iphone dev team to form the iphone elite team. Now, the iphone elite team creates “unbricking” codes to try to thwart the efforts of the iphone dev if apple is to successfully stimulate its developer community, it will need to effectively manage the volatile developer community. However, most of the employees involved in cutting edge products are required to sign confidentiality contracts, so it is difficult to estimate just how many employees it currently has working with the iphone. Either way, apple has a long track record of being a well-managed company and will likely stay that l e the iphone platform is very closely based on the mac os x operating system, there is really very little that apple will need to do in order to turn its iphone into a mobile version of its already successful computer line. While research and development and facility needs will assuredly increase due to the increased strain of producing more and more goods, apple will undoubtedly be able to apply its current cturing business model to the iphone, and make it the ultimate mobile computing up to vote on this titleusefulnot usefulclose dialogare you sure?
