Apple Sees Record iPhone Sales
During the quarter that ended the holiday season last year, Apple saw a record number of sales with the iPhone, reaching 51 million units sold. Within the same quarter, Apple saw exceptional sales numbers from other products as well, selling 26 million iPads and 4.8 million Macs. The quarterly sales record for the iPhone was set largely due to the release of the iPhone 5s, Apple’s newest flagship smartphone, and the iPhone 5c, Apple’s current smartphone that is aimed at being value oriented. The new iPad Air and retina display iPad mini were released shortly after the market introduction of the iPhone 5s and 5c, further promoting iPad sales. Tim Cook, the CEO at Apple, stated that the company plans to continue investing heavily into the future in order to make experiences and products better than ever for consumers.
While the Apple iPhone saw a record number of sales, Apple did not reveal which iPhone device was most popular during the time period.
