Apple has, according to its Investor Relations Web page, set a date for its next earnings call. The Cupertino, California company is set to spill the beans on its latest iOS, OS X, watchOS, and tvOS sales figures for the second fiscal quarter on April 25.
The date is set
The news comes after Apple recorded its best ever fiscal quarter for Q1 2016, selling 74.8 million iPhone handsets and making a whopping $75.9 billion in revenue (leaving a profit of $18.4 billion). This, at the time, was the largest ever profit recorded by any publicly traded company, and as such it placed Apple in the record books.
During the same quarter, Apple sold 16.1 million iPads and 5.3 million Macs. However, specific Apple Watch or Apple TV sales figures weren’t offered, with figures for both products placed in the company’s “other” category.
Significantly, Apple's Q1 2016 included sales made during the run-up to the Christmas holiday season, and as such it's a great quarter for all consumer electronics companies. The real test comes later in the year, after the Christmas rush. Has Apple driven enough interest in its products to yield another impressive quarter? After all, given the late-March launch of the iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro, sales from both devices will be included in Q3, rather than the soon-to-be-concluded Q2.
Apple’s quarterly statement is due for release at 1:30 p.m. Pacific, and its conference call is scheduled for a half-hour after, at 2:00 p.m. Pacific.
Of course, we’ll bring you all the news concerning the report as it reaches us.
