Apple has announced a whopping sale of 43.7 million iPhone units around the world. Even though it leads Samsung in the U.S., the Cupertino giant is now probably the most preferred brand around the world. The company made a profit of more than $10 billion in this quarter — only $9 billion last year. What analysts believed was that the company would hardly generate a revenue of $43.2 billion by the end of the first quarter this year, the total revenue generated by the Apple was $45.6 billion instead of $43.5 billion.
Tim Cook, CEO Apple Inc, said “We’re very proud of our quarterly results, especially our strong iPhone sales and record revenue from services. We’re eagerly looking forward to introducing more new products and services that only Apple could bring to market.”
Unlike its rival — Samsung, Apple is yet to announce any new line of products and in order to have more profit in the coming few quarters, Apple must introduce new products, including iWatch, in the market.
However for the time being, iPhone 6 is one of the most awaited product from the Apple. Rumors for the upcoming iPhone 6 doesn’t seem to settle down, and analysts are predicting that the company would launch the two variants of the iPhone 6. One having a screen size of 4.7 inches and another with a screen size of 5.7 inches.
iPhone having a screen size of 4.7 inches is nothing new, but making a move in producing “phablets” would probably destroy the existing market of companies like Samsung. For now, only Windows and Android phones come with a large screen, and it will be the first time for Apple to introduce a “phablet” in the market.
There were few reports stating a customer might have to pay an extra amount of $100 to own a new iPhone 6, but if Apple refrains itself from hiking the price, with bigger screens and iOS, a customer would probably go for an iPhone 6 with 5.7 inches.
