10 mindboggling numbers from Apple’s record breaking quarter!


iphone6New Delhi, January 29 – Apple announced its Q1 2015 earnings report last night. The company recorded an amazing quarter for the iPhone as it sold 74.5 million devices. Though, the iPad was a disappointment as for the fourth consecutive quarter it saw a decline in growth.

But this quarter was so big for Apple that the lackluster performance of iPad had almost no impact on it. Apple still set a few records. In fact, this was the quarterly result a company has ever posted! Now don’t take our word on this. It is all in the numbers. And here are the big numbers from the quarter:

1, Apple now holds the record of the maximum profit in a fiscal. It had a profit of $18.04 billion in Q1 2015 on $74.6 billion in revenue. Overall revenue growth stood at 30 per cent.


2, Apple has announced that it has now sold over 1 billion devices powered by iOS. This includes the iPhone, the iPad and the iPod Touch.

3, 74.5 million iPhones, 21.4 million iPads and 5.52 million Macs were sold in Q1. iPhone and Mac sales grew compared to the same time last year. But the iPad sales saw a drop.

4, Apple sold 25 million Apple TVs in Q1.

5, This quarter Apple notably stopped reporting iPod sales. Though the total revenue from the music player stood at $410 million, which is around 1 per cent of the company’s total revenue.

6, The combination of the iPod, the Apple TV, Beats and Apple’s accessories raked in $2.68 billion. This is more than what many companies make by selling smartphones.

7, In Q2, Apple expects the revenue to be between $52 and $55 billion. Traditionally, the revenue drops in Q2 as Apple’s new products for the year launch in Q4 – the American holiday season — so Q1 normally sees the biggest increase in revenue.

8, Nearly $16.14 billion of Apple’s revenue came from Greater China. That is a growth of 157 per cent from the previous quarter and a 70 per cent increase from Q1 last year.

9, Apple’s revenue from the rest of Asia also increased by 33 per cent. It raked in $5.2 billion in revenue from rest of Asia.

10, America continues to be Apple’s main market. It brought in $30.56 billion in revenue with a year-over-year growth of 23 per cent and a sequential growth of 55 per cent.
