Sluggish sales lead Apple to continue slashing iPhone production in the current quarter
 

 
Apple's shares are taking a little hit this afternoon following a report that sluggish iPhone sales are leading Apple to continue cutting production of its smartphone during the current quarter. During the January-March period, Apple produced 30% fewer iPhones when compared to the same quarter a year earlier.

Apple has already informed its parts suppliers that it is continuing to cut production of the iPhone in the current quarter. Slow sales of the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus are the reason why Apple has taken an axe to its production schedule. And Apple does not plan to manufacture enough 4-inch Apple iPhone SE handsets to make up for the drop in the production of its flagship models.

The entire smartphone market is expected to experience its slowest growth ever this year. 2016 could show a year-over-year increase of less than 10% for the first time. In addition, when Apple reports its fiscal first quarter earnings later this month, it is expected to report a decline in year-over-year iPhone sales for the first time ever. Analysts expect Apple to report that it sold 54.6 million iPhone units from January through March, compared to the 61.2 million iPhones it sold during the same quarter a year ago.

Apple's shares are down $2.25 (2%) on the news, currently trading at $109.85.

Thanks for the tip!

What these morons need to do is wait a year before dropping the next phone.

In the year break come up with some real innovation so when it drops people that had the previous one for over a year are def going to want to upgrade.

Why drop multiple phones a year with zero innovations year in and year out ?

Yeah it's a fad like everything else. At some point the phone still fu*king works and the latest and greatest features are more gimmicks. People literally just want a phone that dials, takes good enough pictures, social media and yelp for the closest restaurant nearby


Other than that... the casual user and even the more prominent upgraders have found a landing spot to know when it's time to upgrade. Phones as a whole are all just much better than 5 years ago when making the jump from the horrid battery life and processor speed of the HTC G1 or Evo ... Samsung Epic ... Iphone 3g.


Phones nowadays don't have that exponential improvement year after to year.

Wish I could find that thread where homeboy said apple would fall off and went back and forth with dude about it
That happened in a few of my threads. It was mainly @ and @ that said it wouldn't happen.

I dont think thats the case, its just that Apple is like the rest of the phone makers now. They make products for a mature market and now they have having slow sales like the others makers.

As far as Apple going anywhere ha! They have like 100's of billions in the bank. They will be fine, as far as that innovation thats likely over.

The SE is $500 off contract. That's better than what you paid for your 5 back in 2012.

Posting news you wish was true and posting the truth are two different things. Apples doing fine and yes i fanboy them but let me explain why. First, Its not that its not more capable, or that andriod doesn't have apps cause they have lots. Its not because they lack features or make beautiful looking hardware. Andriod has some gorgeous devices. Its because everyone rips off their ideas and passes them off as their own. They do like Apple, and then say "hey look at this we made it better"

I mean for gods sake people, Apple made a touch screen phone now everyone made one. The difference is Apple the company made a product that didnt exist and influenced an entirely new generation of mobile computing. Not samsung, Not HTC, not Nokia, Not Windows, Not Blackberry it was Apple.

Now i can't say that sh*t is in full swing today like it was when steve jobs did his thing. There's obviously a lot less innovation today in their devices then before.

So to that I challenge both Apple and its competitors. Make something people want again. Get people excited about a shift and take new approaches. Apples whole thing was to "think different" and i don't see that anymore.


No one gives a sh*t about better cameras, biometric authentication, higher resolution screens etc. Its all old news, and the same way Apple releases this iterative sh*t on us, you'd be a hiprocrite to say andriod devices don't do that on a DAILY basis. Just look at how many Samsung Phones come out with updated cameras, better screens, etc its a fu*king rat race.

Both sides need to step up, because no matter who made the phone, its the same sh*t OVER and OVER and OVER ..... and goes for both.


to the poster about these "credible sources" look to 1 source. The news, world news, fu*k look at the stock market. Apples not going anyware. They reduce production cycles ( so does samsung, so does htc ) it just means they are moving to producing the next product. Thats how manufacturing works, its a simple concept.

You mentioned something about 150 Billion ? Apples not lossing that kinda money. It would be headline news and you wouldn't stop hearing about it. Not from some pissy blog that wrote what you hope would be the truth. If i show up to the Mall and the Apple store is shutdown for good, then you've got my ear.


People need to stop being offended by opinions that don't align with your beliefs. Just cause your article is wackness doesn't mean your completely wrong, but it also doesn't mean your cnn. I would have heard about this sh*t myself not on Boxden if Apple was "crashing the stock"


k ?

Because people are buying them. Iphones are more of a fashion accessory. Once a new one drops the old one is out of season.
