A new Piper Sandler survey indicates that only 10% of respondents plan to buy a new “iPhone 12” model in fall or winter 2020, suggesting that consumers are “hunkering down” heading into the launch.

In a research note seen by AppleInsider, lead analyst Harsh Kumar details the results of a survey of about 1,000 Americans that the investment bank conducted in late September 2020.

Per the results, only about 10% of that number said that they expect to buy a new iPhone or upgrade to a 5G-equipped “iPhone 12” model in the latter half of 2020. As Kumar notes, that’s well below a previous survey that suggested 23% of respondents planned to upgrade but may be attributable to the global coronavirus health crisis.

“We are a bit surprised by the lower than expected demand given the cellular transition, but the global pandemic may be putting pressure on spending patterns

Members of the UK’s telecommunications industry are concerned that support for the country’s 5G networks may be limited in the upcoming “iPhone 12” release, with fears it may not include support for 700MHz networks.

It is believed 5G will be an important feature for the 2020 iPhone range, with the new communications technology promising high speed connectivity to consumers. However, Apple’s popular iPhone may cause issues for some carriers, depending on Apple’s implementation of the technology.

According to analysts speaking to The Telegraph, if Apple elects to not include support for 700MHz 5G bands, this could prevent it from working fully with carriers that build out their networks using it. Carriers are expected to take part in a 700MHz spectrum auction set to take place in early 2021, organized by national regulator Ofcom.

Carriers had the opportunity to reuse existing unused spectrum they own for 5G

On Thursday, Morgan Stanley analysts reiterated their Overweight rating on Microsoft (MSFT) with a $245 price target. The analysts see great upside for Microsoft ahead of new Xbox console launches and following the $7.5B acquisition of game developer and publisher Bethesda Softworks.

The long-awaited release of the Xbox Series X/S console is approaching quickly. As expected, Microsoft should experience an uptick in hardware sales driven by the increase of “work/stay/play at home” activities from consumers. “The increase in gaming hardware revenue in FY21 vs.FY20 of $779 million in our model is already pressuring our existing FY21 gross margin estimates by ~35bps”, stated by Morgan Stanley analysts.

The analysts further noted: “Microsoft’s revenue base has grown meaningfully since (MSe $156 billion revenue in FY21 vs $110 billion in FY18), thus making the margin dilutive effect less meaningful now, in our view. Despite this modest gross margin headwind, we look for FY21

On Monday, J.P. Morgan and Morgan Stanley reiterated their Overweight ratings on Abbott Laboratories (ABT). The company’s newest continuous glucose monitor (CGM), the Freestyle Libre 3, recently received a CE mark of approval.

The next-gen Libre CGM, Libre 3 will leverage Bluetooth technology to have continuous, real-time glucose readings automatically delivered to your smartphone every-minute (vs user scanning required in the past) allowing for unsurpassed 14-day accuracy and a ~70% size reduction from the Libre 1 & 2, becoming the world’s smallest and thinnest sensor.

The FreeStyle Libre 3 system was designed to fit perfectly into people’s everyday lives, allowing users to check their glucose as often as they like by just looking on their phones. This innovation allows the users
