"Apple is done, say teens
Future adults allegedly believe, according to research, that Apple isn't cool any more. They're more impressed by Samsung's Galaxy and Microsoft's Surface."
Too many better options out there right now.
I am not going to start an apple vs android discussion by defending apple in any way.... but couldn't another reason for the decrease in current component orders be because there is a new device coming out possible this summer? Everyone online has already read every site saying that the new iphone 5S/6 this year (whether june september) will have a higher resolution screen than the current ip5? That alone could be one reason why they are reducing their orders for the current screen. Also isn't the same screen used on the ipod touch? which hasn't sold as well as expected from what I read.
I won't argue that maybe their future forecast for sales of the ip5 were indeed reduced but we already all assumed that would happen any way if a new phone was going to be released this soon. By no means would either reason dub the ip5 a failure any how, its sales have been great overall it's just the same bug that bit the PS3 in the ass Sony said the system was so advanced it would be good for 10+ years without a new console and that its lifespan would be longer than that of the PS2 but quickly after releasing the ip5 Apple realized they needed a quicker refresh.
