The tablet revolution, or tablet t바카라akeover, continues—perhaps even more so than the iPad. According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, Apple sold just over 300,000 iPads in the first seven months of 2016 alone. That’s more than four times the number it sold in Q1 of last year. In fact, Apple sold 3.25 million iPads over the course of 2016.
Apple was, in fact, able to grow its tablet sales by an astonishing 20 percent.
Apple CEO Tim Cook, at its press conference this month, noted that “The tablet revolution” had pushed Apple’s bottom line to $10 billion for the first time and that a우리카지노 $1우리카지노00 tablet was now available for just $329 in the US. Cook did not say what percentage of the tablet market Apple was able to expand with the product.
And while Apple has been focused on getting as many units on the market as possible, sales of premium iPads have remained surprisingly consistent at only a fraction of their original growth. Apple, for instance, announced new iPads in July that cost $1,399 and $1,799.
And despite Apple’s efforts to boost its iPad sales, the company also seems to be failing. In June, Bloomberg estimated Apple’s iPad profits would only be a quarter of those it had earlier hoped. As a result, iPad revenue fell 12 percent in June from June 2015, while the iPad price is still only about $350 at the time of writing.
But with sales up over 80 percent to $1.5 billion in 2016, the iPad could make a comeback someday, perhaps before the summer comes to a close.
