After the second quarter this year, iPhone sales were up only 3%, a huge drop for one of the best selling smartphones on the market. According to sources, AT&T store managers have instructed employees to steer customers away from Apple iPhones and push Android or Microsoft phones. Employees, in some stores, are not permitted to choose an iPhone as a company owned device.
One source stated; “Apple’s iPhone used to make up as much as 80% of smartphone sales at stores in his area, but that figure has dropped dramatically to between 50% and 60% since regional managers instructed stores to actively push other smartphones in place of the iPhone.
Apple handsets still accounted for 72% of all smartphones activated by AT&T during the second quarter this year.” Source: ATLanta Computer Dude
