First, its Safari browser experienced a worldwide outrage Wednesday. On Friday, the company had to recall millions of power adaptors over concern for electric shock. The two-prong, wall-plug adapters affected were designed for use in continental Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Korea, Argentina and Brazil.

2015 Sales

iPhone

Final quarter of 2014: 74.5 million iPhones sold
Final quarter of 2015: 74.8 million, up less than 1%.

Apple posted record iPhone sales in the last quarter -- barely.

Demand for the latest iPhone isn't quite as strong as many had hoped. Cook said about 60% of iPhone customers haven't yet upgraded to the iPhone 6 or 6S (or the 6 Plus or 6S Plus).


iPad

2014: 21.4 million iPads sold
2015: 16.1 million, down 25%

iPad sales have fallen for eight straight quarters.


Mac

2014: 5.5 million Macs sold
2015: 5.3 million, down 4%

Wall Street analysts were expecting Apple to sell a record 6 million Macs. PC sales fell broadly last quarter, but Apple had been bucking the overall trend.

Sucks to be you, Apple.

I can kinda see why sales would go down, though. They're not making their new products any much better than their previous ones, and hardly at all in terms of base functionality. And of course, people finally learning to buy an actual PC over a Mac.

That's pretty sad. I think iphones as a whole will go downhill though, with more cost-effective brands from China but with comparable functionality...

Good, Apple deserves a loss because they've been comfortably making huge profits for too long. Also they havr the audacity to push their own political agenda along with their marketing campaign. (you'll find that a lot of big companies do that now).

Enjoy your sweatshop tier phone. And if the charger blows up in your face. Don't come crying to me :^)

(British plug sockets are superior in every way tbh)

The only reason I purchase apple products is because I enjoy jailbreaking.

If jailbreaking wasn't a thing I doubt many people would purchase an iPhone because of how limiting it is. Then again I'm probably overestimating how much the average Apple costumer cares.

I'll still use apple. If you don't have a phone to play, but rather actually use it then Apple is the best for you.

I just love how clean and organized everything is. The looks of an iPhone are way better than a samsung. I use iPhones because of the looks and the design of the system.

Imo iPhone > every other phone

Nokias are awesome, they can't cause cracks on its screens when dropped, while Apple.... every drop needs an every visit on an authorized service provider...

Why would we want to buy something from Apple when Android has more features? Just wait, in around a year Apple will start advertising virtual reality items when Android introduced them last month.

People are finally realizing Apple isn't anything special.

Apple purposely made their phone to break in a single drop for more $$$. It's marketing strategy. They are very good in marketing, that's why alot of people wanted to buy their products. Because of it's name, its symbol ( some thinks you are rich if you own Apple products.. )

Let's just end this argument. Take a SAMPLE ( SAMSUNG + APPLE )

I'll use apple devices if they sold it for a cheaper value which is most likely not going to happen.

BTW if you use apple just because it's trending or you think that it makes you look fab, please go to heaven ASAP.
