During the quarter, iPhone 4 sales were up 86% to a record 16.2 million units, while Mac sales went up 23% to a record 4.13 million and iPod sales were stronger than expected at 19.45 million – even though that’s still a 7% decline. As for the iPad, Apple’s tablet had another great quarter and even exceeded Mac sales with a record 7.33 million units moved.
Things are looking good going forward. With the Verizon iPhone coming next month Apple is expected to sell around 9 million units this quarter. Furthermore, COO Tim Cook offered some hints at upcoming products by referring to the Air as the “MacBook of the future, shipping today”, which suggest the company is considering a move to flash memory across the board – a move that would need to happen gradually as storage space and price is certainly still a concern.
