Apple on Tuesday released a report that iPhone got a surprise fall in sales for the second quarter in this year. 50.8 million iPhones were sold in the quarter ended 1 April, and 51.2 million in the same quarter a year earlier.
It is suggested that customers delayed purchases for the Apple’s 10th-anniversary iPhone this fall, and Apple usually release its new iPhones in September. So Apple Chief Financial Officer Luca Maestri thought that the decline in currently is not as bad as it looked, and the sales will be increased in the holiday quarter.
Actually, there is not only the iPhone sales being not so optimistic, other Apple products like iPads also down 13% from the previous year, and that’s also the reason why Apple invest more in other products such as smartwatches and Beats products.
It is said that the Apple’s 10th-anniversary iPhone will features many new things like wireless charging, 3D facial recognition and a curved display, and the company really hope the special edition of iPhone can significantly improve the sales of the product.
