Apple has just released a financial data for the fiscal third quarter (April-June) of this year 2017, a generally fairly quiet period in which there are no major launches and in which the normal is the wait for summer to reach its End and announce the star product. However the good news for the company has been that growth has returned and in all sectors.
41 million iPhone sold, 11.4 million iPad and 4.3 million Macs with a total revenue of $45.4 billion, up 7% over the same period last year. It is the third consecutive quarter with growth and there are also very interesting data such as the fact that in the Services category have managed to break the record in any quarter of any year.
iPhone sales again hit those of the same period last year with 41 million units sold. The iPhone 7, despite maintaining virtually the same design for the third consecutive year, remains strong when we are already talking about its successor, and still accounts for 55% of the company’s total revenue, a figure that is exaggeratedly high but has declined To previous quarters.
But the big surprise that almost nobody expected has come from the hand of the iPad. The launch of the iPad 2017, a model with a very good value for money, has served to make Apple tablet sales go back in a quarter that usually does not usually give these joys. IPad sales have reached 11.4 million units, which represents a 15% growth over the same period of the previous year. We can not forget either Macs that have increased minimally with 4.3 million units, which in the current scenario is a good data.
Within Services, Apple has managed to climb up to $ 7.2 million in revenue, a 22% growth over the previous year, and that record record of any quarter price. Included in this segment are revenues from iCloud, Apple Pay, iTunes sales, AppleCare, etc. And if you look at the geographical distribution of revenue, Apple grows was everyone except China, where it drops 10%. The Asian market for the year is at its best after spectacular growth and has been in free fall for six consecutive quarters.
