Apple's decision to make a cheaper iPhone is paying off, according to Barclays.

Despite Apple's shift from a hardware company to a services business model, Apple's historically trusty revenue stream from iPhone sales is surprising to the upside.

The firm raised its price target on the stock to $224 per share from $207 per share. Barclays has an equal weight rating on Apple. This is below Apple's closing price on Wednesday of $234.37.
