Apple sold 43 million iPhones, 16.3 million iPads, 4.1 million Macs in Q2 2014

Right after announcing its record-breaking second quarter financial results, Apple revealed that it sold over 43.7 million iPhones in the second quarter of this year.

The sales are significantly higher than what Wall Street was expecting. Analysts speculated an annual growth of just two percent from last year's 37.4 million iPhone sales in the same quarter. Apple credited the success of its iPhone to its recent partnership with China Mobile, considered to be the largest phone carrier in the world.

The sales of Apple's iPad tablets is a different story.

Apple only managed to sell 16.3 million iPads in Q2 this year, a far cry from last year's 19.5 million. Apple CEO Tim Cook was quick to defend the declining tablet sales, saying that it had something to do with the company's changes to its channel inventory.

Nevertheless, Cook still believes in the future of the iPad.

He noted that the market share is not an accurate depiction of its success. Demand is still at its peak, Cook said. 90 percent of tablets used in companies and 95 percent used in schools are iPads, he added. Apple has sold more than 210 million iPads since its first debut.

Furthermore, Apple sold 4.1 million Macs - up from last year's 4 million - and, surprisingly, 20 million Apple TVs.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
