Apple shares took a tumble today, with a over six percent loss, making this the largest stock drop in a single day, making it the biggest one in four years. Analysts and other investors are blaming the sell-off and resulting stock price drop on many factors, including a recent forecast by an influential firm that Google’s Android operating system continues to gain ground, as well as unconfirmed reports that at least one stock-clearing house has been raising margin requirements on trades in Apple stock.

Goodbye, Stocks!
Goodbye, Stocks!

While most of Apple’s stock iOS apps are pretty handy, there are a few that the large majority of us probably never open. I’m talking about apps like Stocks, Voice Memos, and Weather (which always seems to be inaccurate in the U.K.).

In the last two weeks, Apple’s share price has plummeted over $60 from its all-time high ahead of reports suggesting that iPhone growth was stalling at domestic carriers. Today, though, Apple has again hurtled past the $600 barrier in after hours trading after Cupertino announced yet another record breaking quarter.

Looks like we can look forward to another three months of stock growth, until the next silly pre-earnings call investor scare.
