Apple is cutting reserves in everything from high street stores, making equipment to save $1 billion (£639 million) this year.
The updated prediction comes after the company stated its earnings of the third-quarter, beating the expectations on profit, but falling in a state which lacks expectations on iPhone sales.
Apple has sold over 47.5 million of the flagship device, missing out the expectations of analysts for sales of 49 million, and sending its shares lower as much as 7% in after-hours trading.
The tech giant said in a filing that it now expects to spend $12 billion, 8% less than originally proposed, on data centers, product tooling, infrastructure and corporate facilities, including information systems.
A spokeswoman of Apple told that the reduction will not include any changes to product plans.
Apple is broadly expected to be introducing a new model of the iPhone in the upcoming months, while many reports have predicted that it would be unveiled in September.
In spite of the disappointment with the iPhone in the third quarter, its newest versions – the larger-screened iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus – are still on the brim of selling.
Sales of the devices have increased 35% year-on-year in the three months to June and folded in the most important Chinese market.
In addition, Apple is also setting its target for a strong Christmas period for its latest release, the Apple Watch.
Apple has reported its total profit of $10.7 billion in its third quarter, quite a big achievement as last year it was $7.7 billion.
