The financial results published by Apple at the end of the second fiscal quarter of 2018 reveal some interesting details about the company's status and its products. Despite the fact that many voices say iPhone X is a disaster, the company has managed to sell more than 50 million smartphones and even grow several percent over the same period last year. At the same time, the company's service division recorded the highest increases.
The second quarter of 2018 brought Apple $ 61.1 billion in revenue, a 16 percent increase over the second quarter of last year. During this period there were hunts of 52.2 million iPhones, 9.1 million iPads and 4.08 million Mac computers. Compared to last year, we have a 3% increase for the iPhone, a stagnation for the iPad and a small drop for PCs. According to available data, this is the most successful second quarter for iPhone in the past three years.
In the category "others", where Apple integrates the rest of products such as Apple Watch, HomePod and AirPods headphones, Apple recorded a 38% increase. This is mainly driven by AirPods, which are considered a successful product, with the company making great efforts to meet demand, while Apple Watch continues to be the most popular smart watch on the market. Since these devices are classified in one category, we do not have clear information about the number of units sold.
Finally, services grew significantly during this period, with $ 9.2 billion in revenue being 30% higher than last year. This category includes iCloud, Apple Music and AppStore. The company expects significant increases for this product category in the future.
