Apple iPhone to return to growth next week, ending 9-month slump

“Apple next week will report a return to iPhone growth after a three-quarter slump, a group of financial analysts predicted,” Gregg Keizer reports for Computerworld. “According to Philip Elmer-DeWitt, the creator of the Apple 3.0 website, 12 institutional and 5 independent analysts all forecast a year-over-year increase in iPhone sales during the December quarter.”

“The average sales figure from the 17 analysts was 77.3 million iPhones, which would represent a 3.4% increase over the 74.8 million Apple reported for the fourth quarter of 2015,” Keizer reports. “Analysts’ estimates ranged from a low of 75 million to a high of 80 million.”

Keizer reports, “Apple set a record for iPhone sales in 2015’s December quarter, but in each of the following three quarters, its iPhone numbers were down from the prior year’s.”

  1. iPhone 7 Plus still rocks. The best iPhone yet. (That 2X 2nd telephoto lens feature all by itself was enough.) Also love using my old 6 Plus for random tasks around the house (WiFi radio, etc.) especially since I can still plug it into older AUX radio inputs & mixers.

      1. I am not so sure about the light at the end of the tunnels, AAPL drops so much after hours from $121.95 to $121.22. ($-0.73)
        Apparently, the earnings report for next Tuesday won’t be great. 🙁
