iPhone sales decline year-over-year for first time ever

iPhone sales decline year-over-year for first time ever

April 26, 2016 | By Christian Nutt




Apple's iPhone had its first year-on-year quarterly sales decline ever, and that has resulted in Wall Street dissatisfaction with the world-beating tech company. 

iPhone sales dropped to 51.2 million for the three months ended March 26, 2016; the same period in 2015 saw the company selling 61.2 million phones.

Sales for the company overall dropped 13 percent year-on-year, to $50.6 billion. Profits were, however, $10.5 billion, so that puts some of this grimness in perspective. Still, analysts had expected much more from Apple, predicting roughly $11 billion in profits on sales of $51.97 billion. 

iPhone sales make up 65 percent of the company's revenues, so a decline in sales is very big news for the company.

Of course, this won't likely change much about the popularity of smartphone games -- they're a huge segment of the industry in 2016.
