UPDATE: Here are a few of the interesting tidbits share by Tim Cook and Co. during Apple's Q2 2015 call:
We’re now knee-deep in earnings season, and the next company to report its quarterly results is Apple.
Apple says that it sold 61.2 million iPhones in Q2 2015, a 40 percent increase from the 43.7 million iPhones that it sold in Q2 2014. Meanwhile, iPad sales for Q2 2015 finished at 12.6 million, a 23 percent drop from the 16.3 million tablets that it sold in the year-ago quarter. Finally, Mac sales for the quarter finished at 4.6 million, a 10 percent increase from the 4.1 million units sold in Q2 2014.
Looking at the financials, Apple posted $58 billion in revenue and $13.6 billion in net profit. That’s up from $45.6 billion in revenue and $10.2 billion in profit in Q2 2014. One other tidbit that’s worth noting from Apple’s report include the fact that revenue from Greater China grew 71 percent year-over-year to finish as $16.8 billion, showing big growth in that market and making that region Apple's second biggest in the world, behind only the Americas.
While Apple’s iPhone sales fell from 74.5 million in Q1 2015 to 61.2 million in Q2 2015, it’s worth noting that Apple’s first quarter includes the holiday season, which gives sales a nice boost. Sales of 61.2 million in the first three months of 2015 is pretty good for the Cupertino firm, and the news that Greater China is now Apple’s biggest market appears to show that it was wise for Apple to make bigger iPhones.
As usual, I’ll be listening in the Apple Q2 2015 conference call that starts at 4:00 pm ET, and I’ll be sure to report on any other interesting bits of info that may be shared.
