Very good second quarter 2021 for Apple

Apple announces good results between April and June, beyond its own estimates and those of Wall Street.

In the second quarter of 2021, Apple announced a growth of 36% of its sales, for a turnover of 81.4 billion dollars. The company did not expect to achieve such a result, nor even the best analysts on Wall Street who estimated it at 73.8 billion.

Increased sales of iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Apple Watch and accessories

iPhone sales climbed 50% over this period, to $ 39.6 billion in revenue, exploding estimates of $ 34.6 billion. IPad sales for their part climbed 12%, or generated revenue of 7.37 billion. Finally, sales of other devices and accessories - including Apple Watch, Apple TV, HomePods and AirPods - rose 36%.

Services on the rise too

The service sector also exceeds the wildest expectations with 33% better than the same period last year. Services include selling content on iTunes, the App Store, Mac App Store, Apple Music, Apple Pay, Apple TV +, Apple Arcade, and Apple News +.

Lower rise to come due to component shortage

Apple warns, however, that sales should slow for the third quarter, especially because of shortage of electronic components. The company still expects double-digit growth for this quarter.
