Apple announced today on the company’s earnings call with investors and analysts that during its fiscal fourth quarter ended September 30 it set an all-time record for app sales.
Apple just reversed its slide, if you can call it that.
After three quarters in a row of slowing sales growth, Apple's September quarter - reported this afternoon - shows a modest re-acceleration. See Matthew Panzarino's post for the financial big picture, and Chris Velazco's for the product-by-product details.
Now for the charts.
Apple’s iPhone sales for Q1 2014 have broken the company’s previous record, and they also mark the company’s ability to ship as many smartphones as Samsung, which was previously the only company in the world to move over 50 million units in a single quarter back in 2012.
Apple has just issued a press release revealing it sold 9M iPhones during the launch weekend of its iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s. As is typical for the company with new hardware, it hasn’t broken out individual model sales, but other signals point to a stronger debut weekend for the higher-end iPhone 5s than for the 5c.
Apple today announced that it managed to rack up 2 million pre-orders for the iPhone 5 in 24 hours, two times as many as it managed for the iPhone 4S last year, which sold over 1 million devices during its first 24 hours of pre-order sales.
In Apple’s Q4 earnings call today, Tim Cook today said that Apple had a “fantastic” quarter in Greater China, with revenues at $5.7 billion, up 26% year on year, but actually that revenue was flat on Q3.
