A new report claims Apple has made the decision to cut back production of its latest smartphones, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. The report says that the output of new units will decrease by as much as 30% in the first quarter of 2016.
The Nikkei Asian Review, citing unnamed sources, says:
The U.S. company had initially told parts makers to keep production of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus for the quarter at the same level as with their predecessors -- the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus -- a year earlier. But inventories of the two models launched last September have piled up at retailers in markets ranging from China and Japan to Europe and the U.S. amid lackluster sales.
The report adds that Apple is expected to ramp production back up to normal for the phones for the second quarter of 2016.
