18:08 EDTAAPLApple iPhone ASPs were down $41 in Q2 in part from stronger 4S sales
Regarding the decline in ASPs or 'average selling price' on the iPhone, Apple said on its Q2 earnings call: "When you look at the $41 of decline, I would say about half of that was driven by the fact that we have continued to do very well in emerging markets with the 4S. I mentioned that there's a lot of markets where we've grown very strongly, in Latin America, in Asia-Pacific, in Eastern Europe. So about half of that decline came from the stronger sales of the 4S. And then the rest was primarily the fact that, again, as we move away from the quarter where we launch the product, we tend to have lower capacity mix in our numbers."
