2019 did not start at best for Apple. After the letter to the investors with the downsizing of the estimates on the revenues of Q1 2019, the Cupertino company would have cut the production of the iPhone for the second time in two months.
The news comes from Nikkei, and according to its sources, Apple would have asked its suppliers to produce 10%
The latest revision on future production concerns the new iPhone models – therefore XS Max, XS and XR – said sources close to the issue. “The degree of revision is different for each supplier”, revealed a source.
If true, it would be a decline in iPhone sales of 20% over last year. A situation that could also increase investor concerns, following Tim Cook’s open letter published a few days ago.
Apple, however, had already expected everything, the decision not to disclose the number of units of iPhone sold was not in fact taken by chance.
