Apple will be outlining their earning reports for the last quarter of 2014 on January 27 and it is expected to be the best in years. There is no doubt of the fact that Apple’s fate changed last year with the launch of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The sales jumped higher after the launch of the two flagship devices from Apple and the iPhone maker has not looked back ever since. Most of the experts and analysts have commented that if not for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple might just have struggled.
BI Intelligence has drafted a chart based on the sales and earnings reports of the past years and the expected sales of iPhones provided by Philip Elmer-DeWitt of Fortune. The rough estimation states that more that 65 million iPhone have been sold during the last quarter of 2014.
There is no doubt about the fact that this is the best fiscal quarter that Apple has seen in terms of sales, but the margin of growth will also be taken into consideration. The analysis points to a 30% percent growth in the last quarter of 2014; the best Apple has seen since the last quarter of 2012.
The analysts are also confident of the fact that Apple will ride the success from 2014 in 2015 as well. With rumors about iPhone 6S and the 12.9 inch iPad Pro already on the rise, it will not be surprising if Apple keeps its high tide flowing.
A lot will depend on if and when the rumored Apple devices are released and how they fare. With the success of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, still by their side, the next products will automatically get the boost that will be needed. One will have to wait till January 27th for any official words.
