Financial results

Apple's performance compared to the same quarter last year and analyst expectations:

  • total revenue - 97.3 billion (+9%), expectations - 93.9 billion dollars;
  • earnings per share - 1,5 $ (+9%), expectations - 1,4 $.

  • Mac - 10.4 billion (+15%), forecast - 9.2 billion dollars;
  • accessories - 8.8 billion (+12%), forecast - $ 9 billion;
  • services - 19.8 billion (+17%), forecast - $19.7 billion.

The head of the company, Tim Cook, during the report noted the high demand for the iPhone 13, as many changed old models to new ones. He also said, that among the buyers there were many, who used Android smartphones before.

But iPad sales have fallen again. According to Cook, the reason is still the same: "very serious supply problems".

Services - App Store services, Apple Music, Apple Pay and others are still a high-margin and fast-growing business for the company. Services sales were in line with expectations this quarter, although earlier they exceeded forecasts by 3-8%.
