Dali Optoelectronics supplies mobile phone lenses to Chinese smartphone makers such as Apple and Huawei, but Apple is its largest customer . The company said that the decline in revenue in December was mainly due to weak orders from several customers.

Affected by this, Japan Display, Lumentum, Qorvo and AMS four iPhone parts suppliers have lowered their performance expectations.
