Apple has agreed to pay up to US$500 million to settle litigation accusing it of quietly slowing down older iPhones as it launched new models, to induce owners to buy replacement phones or batteries.

The preliminary proposed class-action settlement was disclosed on Friday night and requires approval by US District Judge Edward Davila in San Jose, California.

It calls for Apple to pay consumers US$25 per iPhone, which may be adjusted up or down depending on how many iPhones are eligible, with a minimum total payout of US$310 million.

Apple AAPL is expected to benefit from the upcoming 5G upgrade cycle.

The iPhone-maker, carrying a Zacks Rank #2, is expected to launch its first 5G-supported device later this year.

Additionally, continued momentum in the Services segment, backed by strong App Store sales and the robust acceptance of Apple Music and Apple Pay, are expected to drive growth this year.

Moreover, the company’s wearables market domination is expected to continue in 2020 owing to strong adoption of AirPods and Apple Watch.

The solid uptake of Apple Watch Series 5 is helping the iPhone maker strengthen presence in the personal health monitor space.

The company has a market cap of $1.106 trillion and dividend yield of 1.22%.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for Apple’s fiscal 2020 earnings stands at $13.50 per share, indicating growth of 13.5% from the year-ago reported number.

Apple Inc. (AAPL)

Even tech giant Apple won’t be immune to the impacts of COVID-19, and the company could be facing a much longer recovery timeline amid the worldwide shutdowns.

Part of Goldman Sachs' concern is related to poor unit demand as well as the length of time in which this figure will return to growth.

“We are now modeling a deeper reduction in unit demand through mid-2020 and then a shallower recovery into early 2021,” analyst Rod Hall explained.

However, while much of the focus is expected to center around this issue at the beginning, Hall believes an additional headwind should be sounding the alarm bells.

The analyst argues average selling price (ASP) weakness could weigh on earnings through 2021. “Handset ASPs downticked to a maximum year-over-year decline of 14% in the [global financial crisis] but, importantly, did not show positive growth until Q3 of 2010 even though unit growth had returned in late 2009,” he stated.

As a result, Apple’s new phones won’t necessarily support the faster type of 5G, millimeter-wave spectrum, as the added expense might not be warranted when there’s less demand for higher quality phones. This could mean the technology might not be included in the devices until 2021.

It also doesn’t help that its services business could be hampered by COVID-19. This appears to be the straw that broke the camel’s back for Hall, and thus he downgraded his call to Sell. Based on his $233 price target, the downside potential lands at 16%.

Looking at the consensus breakdown, other analysts don’t necessarily agree with Hall. 27 Buys, 6 Holds and 3 Sells issued in the last three months give Apple a Moderate Buy consensus rating.

With a $308.25 average price target, shares could surge nearly 15% in the next twelve months.

Apple Stock

Apple stock currently is closing in on a 288.35 cup-with-handle buy point. It will have to break through overhead resistance however, as the handle is not much above base's midpoint.

The stock managed to hold above its 50-day moving average on Wednesday, which is encouraging.

The relative strength line for Apple stock looks to be making progress again following a period of decline that started in mid-March. Strong earnings could be a catalyst for more outperformance.

It has a strong Composite Rating of 94, of a best-possible 99, but the Stock Checkup Tool shows earnings growth has been disappointing of late. It has averaged 5% growth over the past three quarters, though earnings growth is accelerating.

Wireless carriers in the U.S. are facing iPhone shortages as Apple deals with production and shipment disruptions from the coronavirus outbreak.

"Our latest carrier survey indicated that iPhone shipments to carrier stores have been materially disrupted by the coronavirus outbreak in China," KeyBanc Capital Markets analyst John Vinh said in a note to clients last month.

Apple is also weighing whether to delay the launch of its first 5G smartphones by months, possibly into 2021.

The coronavirus pandemic has threatened Apple's production schedule as well as global demand. The launch currently is scheduled for September, with Apple expected to make a decision about the 5G iPhone launch around May.

In a note to clients, Wedbush Securities analyst Daniel Ives said it's "extremely unlikely" that Apple will launch the 5G iPhones in September or October.

Apple earnings are due April 30. This means investors should weigh up whether they would prefer to buy the stock, or go down the less risky route of purchasing options.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL)

Apple stock currently trades for $279.27. It’s only down about $20 year to date, but that’s about as good a discount as you’re going to get on this stock.

Bill Patalon recently wrote that it’s just a matter of time before Apple reaches $400. He touted Apple’s “tons of cash and a bulletproof balance sheet” as reasons to buy. But what separates it even from other buy-and-holds is how it continues to expand its “ecosystem.”

Not only is the company on its way to releasing new phones and computers, but it’s expanding beyond tech. Hardware has become a kind of “bait” for Apple to lure consumers into its expanding services.

Now, Apple CEO Tim Cook has said that healthcare could be Apple’s “greatest contribution to mankind.” That’s no stretch, given the company’s pioneering of “ecosystems” and the growing Internet of Things.

The company plans to integrate a variety of its devices and use AI to provide deeper analytics for health monitoring. It’s also partnering with hospitals for better monitoring technology and more streamlined communication between healthcare professionals.
