“The slight decrease was mainly due to the delay in the start of Apple’s shipment of its new generation of iPhones, which in previous years always starts in the middle or end of September. This year, the launch event and shipment start started four weeks later than usual”, said Annette Zimmermann, research vice president to Gartner.
