Apple somehow selling more iOS devices than ever
Most rational people believed that over the past two years Apple’s absurdly popular iPhone had peaked in sales. However, new sales estimates today show that Apple is trouncing its old records, and may be poised to set new ones again soon.A Morgan Stanley analyst has said that she estimates Apple will sell a total of 31-36 million iPhones this quarter. Which is as much as 8 million more than predicted.
However, it’s not just a holiday spending spree that’s boosting them. The same analyst believes that Apple is poised to match those numbers next quarter as well.
Business Insider points out that Apple’s previous best quarter was 20.3 million. Which means that Apple isn’t just beating it’s own best, it’s obliterating old records two quarters in a row. The iPad is also said to be selling very well as consumers are growing acclimated to the idea of tablet computers. However, sales statistics are not available for iPad.
Sadly non-Apple fans (or happily for Apple fans) it looks like we’re in for a long road of Apple dominance, and they seem to just be getting warmed up.
