Apple is in luck. You are breaking sales records on both computers and iPads. A sector that had it quite stopped, such as Macs, has been reborn in a spectacular way. And that of iPads continues to grow. Because without a doubt it is the best tablet on the market.
And all this thanks to two fundamental factors. The first is the happy pandemic, which is forcing many people around the planet to work and study from home, and that always implies an urgent need for new computers and tablets. And the second, without a doubt, the success of the new Macs Apple Silicon. Hunger has been combined with the desire to eat.
According to the earnings figures that Apple just released for the third fiscal quarter of 2021 (remember that it is the second real quarter of the calendar), Apple sold $ 8.8 billion on Macs. It thus exceeds the 6,500 million that it invoiced for the same concept in the same quarter of last year.
However, this second quarter of this year has been lower in sales for the same concept than the first quarter, where Apple came to bill 9.1 billion dollars just in computers. An outrage, without a doubt.
If we talk about iPads, Apple sold 7.4 billion of dollars, compared to 6.6 billion in the same second quarter last year. In this case, the sales figure for the first quarter of 2021 has not been exceeded either.
Tim Cook assures that this first quarter of the year has been best selling iPad throughout its history, nearly a decade, and also the company’s computer sales, setting a new record. Apple’s CFO Luca Maestri also said that the last four quarters have been the best in sales figures in the history of Apple computers.
