Apple's iPhone 6S may be a letdown for the technology giant's suppliers, with analysts expecting cuts to production forecasts.
Deutsche Bank expects Apple to cut production of its latest phone with its industry checks suggesting the iPhone production forecast for the last three months of 2015 has already been reduced to around 75 million units from the previous 80 million expected.
"The huge success of iPhone 6 (which addressed the long-awaited demand for 'big' iPhones) has created a tough hurdle for its successor to surpass," Deutsche Bank analysts said in a note Tuesday.
"Our long-term view on the Greater China Apple supply chain remains positive," it added. "But, for the near term, we agree that iPhone 6S is a less successful product than iPhone 6, and expect Apple to keep mildly trimming iPhone production forecasts in the coming months."
But the bank noted that while lower production of the 6S has likely been well telegraphed to the market, it's set to dampen interest in suppliers' shares.
