As part of the company’s latest quarterly earnings announcement, Apple revealed today that it sold 48 million iPhones, 9.9 million iPads, and 5.7 million Macs during its fiscal fourth quarter of 2015. These are mixed results, which should come as no surprise for those who watch the company’s numbers closely.
In Q4 2014, Apple sold 39.3 million iPhones, 12.3 million iPads, and 5.5 million Macs. This means that year-over-year, iPhone sales were up 22.1 percent, iPad sales were down 19.5 percent, and Mac sales were up 3.6 percent.
Q4 2015 industry estimates ranged between 48.56 million and 49.39 million for iPhones, between 10.04 million and 10.37 million for iPads, and between 5.67 million and 5.68 million for Macs. Apple thus failed to beat estimates for iPhones and iPads, but beat them for Macs.
