“While we anticipated some challenges in key emerging markets, we did not foresee the magnitude of the economic deceleration, particularly in Greater China,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a letter to investors.

According to the report, the Chines companies are encouraging buyers to abandon iPhones after the CFO of Huawei got arrested in Canada for alleged financial fraud.

 

Recently, it was reported that the Apple iPhone XR became the best-selling iPhone model in November 2018.

"iPhone XR became the best-selling iPhone model in November 2018. In contrast, last year in November the more expensive iPhone X was the best-selling model with almost 50 per cent higher volume compared to the iPhone XR in November this year. The overall sales of new iPhones took a hit in November due to slower sales of the series in the Asia Pacific region (excluding China and India), Europe and US," Shobhit Srivastava, Research Analyst at Counterpoint Research, said.
