  1. Looks like Apple iPhone is doing pretty well after all. These folks rely on Apple for much of their revenue. There is no way poor sales for such a major customer can lead to that level of growth.

  2. Like I said the suppliers that are cutting forecast were hoping to rely on the iPhone competitors increasing sales – Apple is just fine and probably still growing.. Can’t base numbers off of generic parts suppliers without know whom all they supply to. Samsung’s flexible OLED division is growing as well and Apple is the only one using the Flexible version to make the round corners and edge to edge displays.

    1. You are probably right. These data do not mean much. If you assemble all facts, statistics, and rumours, Apple is probably having the inventory problem. I used to remember from Blackberry info that phone makers had to give a certain level of qty commitment to compensate the assmblers’ investment, which makes sense. So, the assemblers’ data vs actual Apple sales might have a timing gap. The fact that an assembler maintained certain level of production may not directly correlate to the sales by Apple. Apple might be busy trying to get rid of inventory accumulating in the assemblers storage at any given time.

      1. KenT – Wake up, yojimbo was making a joke, you know a tongue in cheek impersonation of ignorant analysts!
        Not to worry, we are entertained by members of the ignorati!

      2. “So, the assemblers’ data vs actual Apple sales might have a timing gap. The fact that an assembler maintained certain level of production may not directly correlate to the sales by Apple.”

        Exactly right. Although the fanbois are feeling a tingle up their leg on this one story, let’s evaluate the impact on sales a year from now…
