And how he responds will go a long way to solidifying his legacy as CEO of the tech giant. Ives believes that Cook has to prove a lot to investors this year and do it quickly in order to set Apple up for longer term success. Having proved himself in that difficult arena, Cook was appointed as CEO successor to the ailing Jobs in Cook has also pushed Apple deeper into services such as the Cloud and video content.
We now expect the following: Based on these estimates, our revenue will be lower than our original guidance for the quarter, with other items remaining broadly in line with our guidance.
While it will be a number of weeks before we complete and report our final results, we wanted to get some preliminary information to you now. Our final results may differ somewhat from these preliminary estimates. When we discussed our Q1 guidance with you about 60 days ago, we knew the first quarter would be impacted by both macroeconomic and Apple-specific factors.
Based on our best estimates of how these would play out, we predicted that we would report slight revenue growth year-over-year for the quarter.
As you may recall, we discussed four factors: First, we knew the different timing of our iPhone launches would affect our year-over-year compares. Second, we knew the strong US dollar would create foreign exchange headwinds and forecasted this would reduce our revenue growth by about basis points as compared to the previous year.
This also played out broadly in line with our expectations. Third, we knew we had an unprecedented number of new products to ramp during the quarter and predicted that supply constraints would gate our sales of certain products during Q1.

Again, this also played out broadly in line with our expectations. AirPods and MacBook Air were also constrained. Fourth, we expected economic weakness in some emerging markets. This turned out to have a significantly greater impact than we had projected.
In addition, these and other factors resulted in fewer iPhone upgrades than we had anticipated. These last two points have led us to reduce our revenue guidance. Emerging Market Challenges While we anticipated some challenges in key emerging markets, we did not foresee the magnitude of the economic deceleration, particularly in Greater China.
In fact, most of our revenue shortfall to our guidance, and over percent of our year-over-year worldwide revenue decline, occurred in Greater China across iPhone, Mac and iPad. The government-reported GDP growth during the September quarter was the second lowest in the last 25 years.
We believe the economic environment in China has been further impacted by rising trade tensions with the United States. As the climate of mounting uncertainty weighed on financial markets, the effects appeared to reach consumers as well, with traffic to our retail stores and our channel partners in China declining as the quarter progressed.
Despite these challenges, we believe that our business in China has a bright future.Apple CEO Tim Cook says tech needs to take a moral stand against hate speech "You have no place on our platforms.
