After several Apple suppliers have warned about the decrease in their revenues, many analysts have started to adjust their forecasts for sales of Apple’s smartphones. For example, investment Bank Goldman Sachs lowered its projected production volumes of iPhone 6% and a revenue forecast for the Apple – 3.5%.
On the one hand, the analysts do not report a global decline in demand. However, just the presence of negative forecasts has a negative impact on the value of Apple stock of the company and its market capitalization. This week, the value of securities of Apple goes down and in the last few days of the iPhone maker fell by more than $ 100 billion.
Experts believe that while Apple will be able to show good results. This company will help older models that are significantly cheaper than the new iPhone. According to analysts at Longbow Research, vendors have begun to increase production of less expensive Apple smartphone, including the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
As mentioned above, negative predictions about the sales of the new iPhone many industry experts and analysts. For example, employees of JPMorgan reported a possible decline in iPhone shipments in 2018 and 2019 calendar years amid weak demand in emerging markets.
How Apple will get out of this situation is hard to say. In the network there are rumors that the company will release a really inexpensive camera. However, it will only be available in certain regions. For example, in India.
