UBS attributes reports of Apple cutting iPhone production to the ramping schedule for different components in the supply chain, which the firm noted occurs every year before final mass production.

05:29 EDTAAPLPiper's Munster sees new Apple TV having limited sales impact
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster points out that Buzzfeed last week reported Apple will hold a special event on September 9 to announce the iPhone 6S and possibly a new Apple TV box. The timing of the new TV box are in-line with expectations while the streaming content offering "still appears a wildcard," Munster tells investors in a research note. The new Apple TV device should improve Apple's position in the living room, but given the likely price point of below $99, it will likely have limited impact on revenue, Munster argues. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on the iPhone maker with a $172 price target. Apple closed yesterday up $1.75 to $115.24.
