No one is really surprised when Apple announces that their new iPhones have helped them reach a new record in sales. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have helped Apple sales reach a record of 39.3 million iPhones sold in the last quarter only. This came as a surprise to Apple as well, as they didn’t expect to earn this much. At the latest event on October 16 Apple announced their new products including the Retina iMac, OS X Yosemite, iPad Mini3 and iPad Air 2. We’re really curious how well the new Apple products will sell. Except for the OS X Yosemite, that;s free to download.
The recent Apple sales reached a new record of $23.7 billion from iPhone sales. Experts were expecting $21.5 billion in sales, so they were taken by surprise with the new record as well. According to the new statistics, the iPhone is the best selling Apple device and brings the most money to the company, as expected. Apple officials say that they have a lot of requests for Mac computers as well, not only for iPhone. The iPads, however, are a different story. The Apple sales of iPads are down by 13%, less than they sold last year. This is probably because there have been so many great tablets at a lower price appearing on the market in recent months. Even the analysts didn’t expect the Apple sales of iPads to be this low.
Apple said that they are planning to grow the Apple sales of iPads and they will be working with IBM to create tablets for business users. Also, the coming holiday season will help Apple sales go up a bit, as this is the best period for all tech devices. Analysts are also expecting strong sales for Apple products this Christmas.
Apple said that they expect a total revenue of $63 to 66.5 billion during the last quarter of 2014 that will end in December. Analysts are expecting somewhere around $63.7 billion Apple sales.
What do you think of the recent Apple sales? Do you think Apple will sell more products in the holiday season?
