Apple has done an excellent job of moving lots of stock for the first quarter of 2014. Statistically, it’s a marvelous outcome: 51 million iPhones sold, with 26 million iPads and 4.8 million Macs to supplement the sales.
But what is interesting is the slight decline in comparison to last year’s results; remember, the first quarter in Apple’s terms is October through December, in this case of 2013. iPods continue down a path of irrelevancy, with only 6 million units, vs. 12.7 million in the year ago time frame.
Still, it’s a win for the Cupertino-based tech giant, as Q1 of 2013 saw 47.8 million iPhones and 22.9 million iPads sold, meaning that this year’s numbers are up 6.7% and 13.5%, respectively.
Per usual however, Apple hasn’t distinguished which models of iPhone (5S or 5C), Mac (notebooks or desktops), iPods, or iPads (Air or mini) outsold the other.In which case, we will leave that to the reader to estimate.
