The tech firm made the miserable expectation in the wake of reporting the slowest ever deals development for the iPhone for the last three months of a year ago.It sold 74.8 million in the quarter – a record, yet just marginally higher than the 74.5 million sold the same time the earlier year.

We do imagine that iPhone units will decrease in the quarter,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said.It comes following quite a while of soaring development for the business sector driving iPhone, which drives 66% of Apple’s income.The log jam is to a great extent in accordance with desires that offers of iPhones had topped and Apple needs to locate another wellspring of development. Be that as it may, Mr Cook said the firm still wanted to continue putting resources into cell phones.
