Market Analysis Company Canalys shrank 12 percent deliveries last year in China and expected to fall by 3 percent by 2019 for the first time less than 400 million in 2014.
The new and older iPhone production volume is expected to decrease between January and March between $ 40 million and $ 43 million, compared to forecasts of 47 to 48 million units, saying Nikke told about sources to know the situation.
