Apple sees strongest iPad growth in six years during Q2 2019
Apple has reported its strongest iPad growth in six years during the second fiscal quarter of 2019, revealed on Tuesday as the company announced Q2 2019 revenue of $58 billion and $11.56 in profit during the quarter.
Apple saw sales of iPad increase by 22 percent compared to the year-ago quarter, with earnings up from $4 billion to $4.9 billion in Q2 2019.
Apple has put a lot of emphasis on iPad over the past couple of months, with two all-new Face ID-equipped iPad Pro models launching in October 2018, and a new $499 iPad Air and updated 7.9-inch iPad mini released in March 2019.
The fiscal results don’t share the exact amount of iPad units sold during the quarter, though the company does release revenue breakdown by product category:
- $31.05 billion iPhone
- $11.45 billion: Services
- $5.51 billion: Mac
- $5.13 billion: Wearables, Home and Accessories
- $4.87 billion: iPad
In terms of revenue, iPad was Apple’s lesser-earning product category, with Apple’s ever-growing Services devision bringing in over $7 billion more than iPad during the period.
