Yesterday, Apple released its Q2/2021 financial report, with impressive revenue of $81.43 billion, up 36% year over year. This was the highest record of all Apple’s Q2s ever, which was the dismal quarter of the year.
Traditionally, the period from March to June every year often has a decline in iPhone sales, as consumers turn their attention to the upcoming new iPhones. But in Q2/2021, iPhone sales still grew by 50% compared to the same period last year. The reason is that the demand for iPhone 12 series is still very large.
The leaked information indicates that the iPhone 13 series will not have many changes, except for the screen being upgraded to 120Hz, a new camera cluster and a smaller notch. Maybe that’s why consumers are not very interested in waiting for the iPhone 13 to launch.
Mac and iPad computer sales also increased year-over-year, by 16.3% and 11.9%, respectively. CEO Tim Cook emphasized that Mac and iPad had the highest sales in all of Apple’s Q2s ever. Over the past few months, Apple has launched a new 24-inch iMac and iPad Pro equipped with the M1 chip.
Coincidentally, Apple’s services division also posted the highest revenue of all Q2s ever. Apple has continued to improve the Apple Music service, supporting high-quality music playback. Besides, Apple also launched new podcast shows.
However, Apple is still facing a big problem. Those are the investigations of the legislators. Starting with the lawsuit with Epic Games, Apple continues to be investigated by the FTC related to the App Store antitrust law.
