    The problem with the iPhone is not just that it's the only thing that matters. It's also that it's hard for it to stop being the only thing that matters.

    That simply isn't the case, I've written many articles detailing many aspects of Apple that aren't 100% positive, but the overwhelming majority of my articles is positive towards Apple.

    What there seems is that there's an hypersensitivity to anyone pointing out any risks.

    Usually that might be good. But when you have the iPhone you HAVE to focus on it.

    There are several clues he's not into the regular products, he's tired of that, he wants to do new design stuff.

    It's in the article and expectations have been coming down a lot.

    It says everywhere that he'll be traveling, that he was tired, that he didn't want that weight in his shoulders, that he'll be working on the stores and HQ, there are clues as to him working on the car, etc.

    What there isn't, is anything but nominal interest in the iPhone.

    Apple would never have reached these heights without the iPhone turning out like it did. But it might well be irreplaceable. It's not easy to do better than the most profitable product ever.

    The are many indications, they're in the article.

    If so then perhaps the risk will be smaller. If you ask me, the iPhone 6 already has strange design cues, the Samsung S6 seems better designed.

    Yes it does, but he's going for other stuff probably out of his own will.

    He's not going to be working on the thing as directly. But obviously he's going to see the designs that come out.

    The article doesn't say anywhere for you to sell any shares. It describes a risk.

    He'll be less involved with both (hardware and UI).

    If Ive leaves (he's leaving in a way, regarding the iPhone), AAPL MAY continue to dominate. The "may" is the risk.

    Jurassic, let me clear that up: He is going away from the iPhone, and the iPhone IS Apple's near-term destiny, and even medium-term. Perhaps even long-term.

    It's the most profitable product ever. If it ever ceases being so it's going to be close to impossible to substitute.

    Yes, it can all still work out. That's why I say it's a risk. Remember what happened to Samsung with the S5.
