Falling profits are due to poor Apple sales — Foxconn

According to one of sources, in January-March, Apple will release 40-43 million for new and old iPhone instead of 47-48 million units as previously forecast.

Shobhit Srivasta, a Counterpoint analyst, noted in his blog that the iPhone sales were impacted due to slower sales in the Asia Pacific region, Europe, and the U.S. This bit doesn't involve China and India, where Apple has also struggled to sell their phones. Apple suppliers, including Britain's Renishaw, were hit by the sell-off. This figure is derived from sources apparently familiar with this request, and applies to the first 3 months of 2019.

On the other hand, analysts believe the high price of the 2018 generation makes potential customers stick with their devices for a longer period of time, eventually affecting sales of new models and delaying the planned upgrades.
