Experts Research Notes Details the Forecast
A research note by a market analyst mentions,
“Apple has closed all stores outside of China, though China has opened again. Many operators store in the U.S. and Europe are also closed. AT&T and T-Mobile announced they are closing 40% and 80% of stores even before the U.S. lockdowns were in place. We do not expect online sales to make up much of the loss; we believe online comprises only 10-15% of phone sales.”
