Apple: iPhone sales down in the first quarter of 2017, but not sales!
In the first quarter of 2017, iPhone sales have fallen … But Apple’s revenue has increased. MeltyStyle explains how it is possible.
In the last quarter of 2016, Apple succeeded in defeating Samsung, and became a leader in the smartphone market . A place acquired thanks to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, crowned with success since their commercialization. Since then, the craze has dropped a bit … Result Samsung is back first, and Apple has seen its iPhone sales down. A few hours ago, the Cupertino company released its figures for the first three months of 2017. It appears that the number of iPhone sold from January to March is lower than that of October to December – which is logical – But also to the same period last year. Yes, Apple sold 50.76 million iPhone in the first quarter of 2017, against 51.19 million in 2016.
A few months of the release of the iPhone 8, which could be the first equipped with an OLED screen, interest around the iPhone 7 declines at high speed V … But that does not prevent Apple from s To put full pockets, to believe the figures that were unveiled. If the American giant has earned less money with the sales of its smartphone star, it still managed to grow its profits . How? By coining more than ever its services – notably by increasing prices on the App Store – which ultimately brought in $ 7.04 billion. In total, Apple reported sales of $ 52.9 billion in the first quarter of 2017, including $ 11.03 billion in profits. Rather not bad for a builder whose sales are falling. Surprised by these results?
