HomeApple15 Key Points about Apple’s Results ConferenceBy Antonio Mira – Apr 24, 2013ShareFacebookTwitter
Apple announced yesterday its financial results for Q2 2013. Today we can make a summary with 15 interesting points of the conference offered by Tim Cook and other executives of the company. Without a doubt, the main point is that the numbers achieved by Cupertino’s have been quite good and have exceeded Wall Street’s projections in almost every metric.
15 highlights from yesterday’s Apple results press conference
We have published an article with all the data offered in the conference held by the company’s CEO, but I thought you might want to have a summary of the 15 highlights of this conference. Let’s get started:
- Apple now has $145 billion in cash.
- 300 million people use iCloud. In reference to this service, the company has prepared very important new features for the near future.
- New revenue record in the software services division with $4.1 billion.
- 5.6 million iPods sold in the last quarter, with an MP3 player market share of 70%.
- The cumulative number of downloads exceeded 45 billion.
- Apple has paid over $9 billion to developers so far.
- IDC says the iPhone is number 1 or 2 in smartphone sales in half of the countries reviewed.
- The iPhone has a 95% loyalty rate, substantially higher than the competition.
- 19.5 million iPads sold in the last quarter compared to 11.8 million in the same quarter last year.
- Tim Cook mentioned the “potential for exciting new product categories”.
- Cook also said that “incredible new hardware, software and services will arrive this fall and throughout 2014.
- The music store now operates in 119 countries, the movie store in 109 countries, the iBookstore in 155 countries, as well as the App Store.
- There are over 850,000 apps on the App Store, 350,000 of which are specific to the iPad.
- Apple has 402 stores, including 151 outside the United States.
- The average income per store is 13.1 million per week, with an average of 78,000 visitors per week.
The essence of the conference is that Apple has had a solid Q2, seeing a very strong increase in iPad sales and its ecosystem. The company’s shares rose for a while, but then fell again after Cook’s comments, as he tells from iDownloadblog.
The only “bad” thing we can extract from the conference is that, according to Tim Cook’s comments, there will be no new products from the company until autumn. Perhaps the company has set the autumn months as the launch date for all its new products. Something that would be a bit strange, but certainly not impossible.
