Earlier today, Tim Cook published a letter directed towards Apple investors in which he outlined the struggles that faced Apple during Q1 2019, which is the company’s normally monstrous holiday quarter.
As part of that letter, Cook revealed that Apple is cutting its revenue guidance for Q1 2019 from between $89 billion and $93 billion to $84 billion. Cook cited factors such as struggles in China as Apple’s worse-than-expected performance.
Cook also sent a letter to employees, repeating the key points of the investor letter and inviting employees to join him at the Town Hall, Infinite Loop campus for the all-hands meeting.
We’ll have more details – if available – of the all-hands meeting tomorrow. In the meantime, check up on all of today’s AAPL news below.
