It’s been almost half a year since the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were first unveiled and it looks like Apple still has a strong momentum going on. At the Cupertino company’s Q2 2015 financial call, the company said that they sold a whopping 61.1 million iPhones, and while its Q2 2015 is not as impressive as previous quarter, its overall business continues to soar.
According to the financial report, the past three months saw a pretty impressive sale that exceeded what it forecast and what investors were expecting. Apple posted a quarterly revenue of US$58 billion and quarterly net profit of US$13.6 billion, an increase compared to the same quarter last year – US$45.6 billion revenue and US$10.2 net profit. Gross margin was 40.8% compared to 39.3% in the year-ago quarter, and international sales accounted for 69% of the quarter’s revenue.
Device wise, for the first three months of 2015, Apple sold 61.1 million iPhones, 12.6 million iPads and 4.5 million Macs. The number for iPhone sales may not be as impressive as last quarter, which sold 74.4 million iPhones, it’s still a very impressive number that exceeded all expectations.
“We are thrilled by the continued strength of iPhone, Mac and the App Store, which drove our best March quarter results ever. We’re seeing a higher rate of people switching to iPhone than we’ve experienced in previous cycles, and we’re off to an exciting start to the June quarter with the launch of Apple Watch.” – Tim Cook, CEO of Apple.
Not all’s good for Apple though, the company only sold 12.6 million units of iPads, down from 21.4 million from the last quarter. Mac sales went down to US$4.5 million compared to 5.52 million units sold last year, but it’s an increase from 4.1 million sold in the same quarter last year.
Aside from the iPad sales, these numbers are still very impressive and have been steadily going up over the past few years. Sadly though, since the Apple Watch only went on sale last week so the numbers are not included. Do you think that the Apple Watch will keep the trend up for Q3 2015?
