I reverted back to 5.1.1 and am very happy. I will stay here for awhile. Very solid and still have iMessage.

Actually, their stock falling has to do with supply chain issues. Analysts assumed that demand had fallen for the iPhone 5 just because Apple had cut orders for some of the components (namely screens). The truth of the matter is that Apple had stockpiled on these items when their was concern of a shortage and now subsequent orders are being adjusted to allow this surplus to be used. Demand for the iPhone 5 is still quite strong and you'll see AAPL rise again. One year target is 770s. Strong Buy!
