It looks like Apple is going to have a significant drop in iPhone sales this quarter on a sequential basis.
DigiTimes reports the two companies responsible for making the latest iPhone’s touch panels – TPK Holding and Wintek — expect their shipments to decline by about 15-20% this quarter.
According to DigiTimes’ report, which is based on interviews with industry sources, the decline in touch panel shipments is due to the fact that the “iPhone 4S is moving into the final stage of its product life cycle, and Apple is likely to adopt in-cell touch solutions for its next-generation model,”
This may be further evidence that the next iPhone will come in the third quarter of this year.
