Apple lowered its first-quarter guidance in a letter to investors from the CEO on Wednesday.

The smartphone giant also lowered gross margin to about 38% from between 38% and 38.5%.
The company blamed a variety of factors for the lowered guidance, including a weakening economy in China and lower-than-expected iPhone sales revenue.
