According to the analyst of KGI Securities Ming-Chih Kuo the next generation of Apple smartphone iPhone 5 is expected in September. Apple iPhone sales are unlikely to increase significantly in the current quarter because of the limited availability of components and coming sales of the new model of Apple iPhone. Potential customers may postpone the purchase until the release of Apple iPhone 5.
