Apple has announced its financial results in the second quarter of fiscal 2016. According to the data shared by the company officials, revenue generated in the course of last couple of months is equal to $50.6 billion and net profit accounts for $10.5 billion. This quarter’s earnings demonstrate the first decline in revenue in 13 years. Just for you to compare, one year ago, the figures were noticeably higher, $58 billion and $13.6 billion respectively.
According to the latest report from The Wall Street Journal, the next-generation Apple Watch may get the support of cellular network and a faster processor. These improvements should make the wearable device more independent and allow people to use the smartwatch without their phone close at hand.
According to the latest rumors shared by reliable supply chain sources, the next-generation iPhone may become waterproof and dustproof and get a touch sensitive Home button instead of the physical one. The rumors come from Digitimes, a Taiwanese news website that has a rather mixed track record. Anyway, it goes in line with earlier reports suggesting Apple was planning to equip the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus with a new Home button to make the device thinner and lighter.
According to the latest report published by reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple’s iPhone shipments in 2016 may be lower than those of 2014. The expert believes that due to the lack of ‘attractive’ updates in the iPhone 7, the company may ship around 190-205 million iPhone units this year. Under the “worst case scenario,” Apple may become the only top-five rating vendor to see a decline in smartphone shipments. Depending on the actual sales results, the decline may account for 11.6% or 18.1% year-over-year.
