There’s been a lot of buzz surrounding a supposed fall from grace for Apple, the company that’s seen its revenue and income boosted basically quarter by quarter in the last few years. An unprecedented stock drop of over 30% seemed to confirm this story, but before all you Android fanatics start partying, you should probably hear this.
According to a market analyst cited by Apple Insider, Cupertino’s latest financial report, due to be released on January 23, is going to once again be favorable mostly due to strong iPhone sales.
The latest model in the series, iPhone 5, is thought to have hit 35 million units shipped in the last three months of 2012, while the 4S and 4 trailed behind it with 9.5 and 7.3 million respectively. That’s a total of around 52 million units, which would bring Apple’s last year score to a whopping 140 million.
Meanwhile, the iPad is predicted to have sold like hotcakes as well, reaching 23 million units shipped during Q4 of 2012, which would be a 49% increase year-on-year. It’s not all milk and honey for Apple, thought to have pushed only 3.9 million MacBooks between the months of October and December, but that only makes the company’s mobile records look even more impressive.
