Yet again the company is having a stellar year of profit
There is still a lot of speculation surrounding what the launch for the iPhone 6 will look like, although there seems to be no stopping sales of the current model of the iPhone. Apple announced their recent earnings and they certainly have a lot to be proud of.
For comparison, Samsung is reporting that their mobile device revenue is going to be down as much as 24 percent in the third quarter of 2014. As Apple’s largest competitor, this is good new for Apple. In contrast, Apple announced that they earned $7.7 billion in profit, due in large part to their outstanding iPhone sales.
Typically, iPhone sales begin to drop as new devices are prepared for launch, but the recent move into new territory in China has kept them strong, selling a total of over 30 million. The launch of the iPhone 6 is going to be much larger, however, as reports say that they are ordering as many as 70 to 80 million units from their suppliers.
That kind of launch means Apple will certainly have another record setting quarter, one that will far outshine what they have had in the past. While they are still attempting to boost iPad sales through a partnership with IBM, they have very little to worry about.
We are perhaps months away from an official announcement on the iPhone 6, but Chinese sales and other markets are going to nonetheless keep iPhone sales strong throughout the world, whether they are cheaper iPhone 5c models or the new iPhone 6 when it is released.
