The iPhone is the chief contributor to Apple’s (AAPL) top line. However, Apple has struggled to accelerate its iPhone sales amid stiff competition from rivals Samsung (SSNLF), Xiaomi, Google (GOOGL), Sony (SNE), and smaller manufacturers backed by Nokia (NOK) and BlackBerry (BB).

President Donald Trump's admission that he's "not thrilled" with the Federal Reserve's signalling on rate hikes could support the ongoing strength of so-called FAANG complex, which has been responsible for more than 80% of the S%P 500's year-to-date gains, as the country's biggest tech stocks race to become the trillion dollar company.

The devices have all been determined by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officials to fall under an obscure subheading of data transmission machines in the sprawling list of U.S. tariff codes.

The investment bank reiterated a $164 price target on the tech giant Friday, projecting 12-month downside risk of 14.5%. Goldman said downside risks on Apple include weakening iPhone demand, pressure on gross margins and large and dilutive acquisitions.
