These suppliers are decreasing their production after clear orders from the Cupertino company. Also, as was mention, it is not a new situation and it has been happening for a number of months. For the first 3 months of 2016, it is estimated that the decrease will reach 30%. Although any of these rumors are not confirmed yet, the market reacted to this news and the shares of Apple fell again in recent days.
Facts that can confirm this situation
