News tagged ‘financial results’
It is Sunday today, which means I have to tell you about the most interesting posts of the past seven days. Most of the articles this week deal with the iPhone 6s, new Apple TV set-top box and the untethered jailbreak of iOS 9-iOS 9.0.2. There are also several posts that tell us about Apple’s iPhone, iPad and Mac sales as well as about the 12.9-inch iPad Pro that is expected to hit the store shelves in November.
According to the latest figures shared by reliable insiders, the Apple Watch sales in the past five months generated at least $1.688 in revenue. Even though Apple did not share any specific figures related to the wearable device during the recent conference devoted to the financial results in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, it looks like the immense growth of revenue from the "Other Products" category is caused by the strong sales of the Apple Watch.
Apple on Tuesday announced its financial results in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015. Apart from record-breaking iPhone and Mac sales and incredible revenue, the company also reported about the number of iPads sold over the last couple of months. According to the official figures shared by the company, the number of iPads sold to customers worldwide in the fourth quarter is equal to 9.8 million units. Unfortunately for Apple, this figure demonstrates a 20% year-over-year decline in global sales. Even though Apple continues to be one of the leaders of the tablet market, looks like nothing can stop it from stagnation.
The analyst Benedict Evans has recently shared a chart showing how iPad sales declined since the debut of the original first-gen iPad back in 2010.
Just as it was expected, Apple has announced its financial results in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 that ended September 26th. The tech giant reported the quarterly revenue of $51.5 billion and net profit of $11.1 billion. If to compare these results with the results of the fourth quarter of 2014, we’ll see a substantial increase in revenue and net profit. In case you missed it, last year Apple managed to get the revenue of $42.1 billion and net profit of $8.5 billion. As to the gross margin, it rose from 38% last year to 39.9% in 2015.
It is Sunday today, which means that it’s high time I told you about the most popular posts of the last couple of days. Most the articles this week deal with the iPhone, as well as with the release of iOS 9.1 and OS X 10.11.1 El Capitan to users worldwide. Apart from that, you can find some posts related to the launch of the Apple TV, sales of Apple products in new countries and predictions about the next-generation iPhone.
As it was already mentioned earlier this month, Apple will officially announce its financial results in the fourth quarter of this year at a special event scheduled for Tuesday, October, 27th. Apple has recently confirmed time and date of the event, so looks like we will soon find out how much money Apple has earned in the last couple of months.
In addition to the iPhone 6s teardown, which was completed several weeks ago, the iFixit has just performed a new one. This time the experts have decided to give us a closer look at the advanced 4.7-inch iPhone 6s display, which can boast of the resolution of 750 x 1334, pixel density of about 326 ppi and which supports the 3D Touch technology. This technology detects multiple levels of pressure and using this information performs a set of predefined features.
According to the latest reports from well-known and reliable IDC and Gartner analysts, Apple’s Mac sales in the third quarter of this year demonstrate the weakest results in the course of the last two years. Still, PC sales fell by 7.7% (Gartner) or 10.8% (IDC), and the market share of Mac computers grew from 6.9% to either 7.6% (Gartner) or 7.5% (IDC). It is currently unclear how many Macs Apple actually shipped to customers in Q3 2015 as Gartner reports about 5.6 million units and IDC claims the number was equal to 5.3 million units.

If to speak about the Mac sales in the second quarter of this year, they saw a decline as well. The sales of Apple computers fell only by 2.5%. It should be pointed out, however, that this number represents only the sales results in the United States of America, where Apple products are incredibly popular among the customers.
