ReportTT: Apple stops placing orders to Mac components

Report: Apple has stopped placing Mac component orders

| Business, Financial & Legal News | Posted: Apr 18, 2013 8:01 pm

Reports continue to pour in that seem to show Apple is faltering. The latest report is from the hit-and-miss DigiTimes who say that Apple have stopped placing orders for Mac components amid worse-than-expected PC sales. PC sales declines have hurt all PC manufacturers and Apple appears to be hit as well.

The report cites sources in the "upstream supply chain." These suppliers are worried that shipments might not resume until late May. They say that at the end of 2012, Apple placed aggressive orders, either missing the impact their iPad is having on the PC market or expecting not to be hit by the PC decline.

 

We will know more about how Apple performed this quarter when they release their financial results on Tuesday.
