<p><strong>Apple</strong>'s <span class="ticker" data-id="202686" />iPhone 5 first-week sales figures fell short of the expected 8 million units, coming in closer to 5 million, well below analyst expectations for the much-anticipated device. But why? Does this mean Apple's game is over? </p>
<p><p>It's natural to wonder if this means that Apple no longer has what it takes, or that the iPhone 5 was an overhyped product. In today's video, Fool.com analyst Andrew Tonner dispels these myths, pointing to issues of supply -- <em>not</em> demand -- as the primary reason behind lower-than-expected sales.
