Forecast says Apple iPhone shipments will drop to 227M in 2016, resume growth in 2017
Some days it seems like Apple is a handset company that also makes some other things. Forget for a moment that any one of these “other things” (look, I’m quoting myself!) would make any other company be considered sucessful. Ever heard of Microsoft? If you discounted all iPhone sales Apple would still be making nearly the same as MS (instead of only four times as much).
Note, IDC pulled these numbers out of their (its?) ass(es).
