Apple this evening updated its investor relations page to note that the earnings announcement for the third fiscal quarter (second calendar quarter) of 2016 will take place on Tuesday, July 26.

In Q2 2016, Apple saw its first year-over-year revenue decline since 2003 along with its first ever drop in iPhone sales, and that downward trend is expected to continue into the third quarter of the year.

Spoiler alert: It drops again

But hey, we at Apple can always look like we're perfect by showing the wonderful iOS 10 adoption rate of 99.9% :) (but of course we won't mention how we shoved the updates down your throat)

Even a "bad" quarter for Apple is still better than any other tech company on the planet. If they go 7 consecutive quarters of decline (like Samsung) then let's talk about how badly Apple is doing.

Considering until this week the iPhone SE had a 2 to 3 week delivery time from from order, they might have strong iPhone sales for this quarter. as it will include ALL iPhone SE sales to date.
