Apple likely to announce another lackluster quarter due to declining iPhone sales
Cupertino will announce the company’s FY 2016 third quarter results at 2 p.m. EDT. The market expects to see a year-over-year revenue decline due to declining iPhone sales, according to The Wall Street Journal.
According to 30 estimates collected by FactSet, analysts are forecasting iPhones sales of 40 million units during the June quarter, down 16 percent from a year earlier. If correct, this would be the second consecutive quarter where iPhone sales have dropped compared to the year before.

In the second fiscal quarter of 2016, Apple recorded $50.6 billion in revenue and $10.5 billion in profit. That’s compared to $58 billion in revenue and a $13.6 billion profit in the same quarter last year.
The earnings drop was due in large part to the iPhone. During the second quarter, Apple sold 51.2 million handsets, 10 million fewer than in the same quarter of 2015.
For the June quarter, analysts expect Apple to announce revenue of $42.1 billion, compared with $49.6 billion reported a year earlier.
