iPhone Shipments Expected To Decline For The First Time

Piper Jaffrey, a famous investment firm, has repositioned its estimate for Apple’s recent iPhone shipments for this quarter.

As per the Quarter 2, ending in March 2016, about 55 million iPhone units will be shipped.

The figure has decreased about 12% when compared to the previous quarter.

The previous quarter has seen shipments of about 62.5 million units.

If the figure by the company is expected to be true, than this would be the first time iPhone shipments see year-on-year decline since the first iPhone launch in 2007.

In the same period last year, iPhone sold about 61.2M units, which was a promotion from 43.7 million units of 2014.

The forecast by the aforementioned firm has also some bad news for the third quarter which will be ending in June.

The shipments will decline from 48.5 million to 45 million units. The analysis by Jaffrey can be the result of the continuous rumors by Apple supply chain companies that the Cupertino giant has reduced the part orders.

Previously, it was being stated that a single supplier's reduced orders are not indicative of overall shipments.

It is said that the investment firm has been forced to look into the multiple suppliers again.

The quarter 2 report says that the revenue expectation will be nearly $55.8 billion.

As for the quarter 1, the company has revenue of about $77 billion.

This revenue is based on about 5.8 million Macs, 75 million iPhones, 17.5 million iPads, and 6 millions Watches shipped.
