iPhone manufacturing orders down, iPad up however

Shaw Wu, an analyst at Sterne Agee, says that Apple has reduced iPhone orders by between 20-25% from the 35.1 million units the company shipped in the March quarter.
The analyst now sees shipments for the quarter to be between 26-28 million. Wu also points out that the reason is not a slowdown in demand, but rather the upcoming 6th generation of the iPhone (predicted to hit the market in September / October this year).

When it comes to Apple's tablet, the analysts increases forecasts. Wu increased iPad shipment expectations from 14 to 15 million units (for the June ending quarter).
