Shipments of iPhone Devices To Top 50 Million Units In 2Q15
Apple is expected to set another record for iPhone sales in its fiscal 2015 second quarter. According to a new report from Digitimes, Apple is expected to ship over 50 million units in its fiscal 2015 second quarter, an increase of 14.4% from 43.7 million units shipped in the same period last. The company has recently sold 74.5 million iPhone units in 1Q15, which is a new record.
These numbers are fueled by the huge demand for the iPhone in China.
“Demand for smartphones in the Greater China area during the upcoming Lunar New Year holidays will maintain sales of iPhone devices in the first quarter. The ratio of Asia-Pacific sales to Apple’s total sales is expected to continue to rise,” according to the report.
Apple has seen off the likes of Louis Vuitton and Hermes to become the most coveted luxury brand of China’s wealthiest shoppers.
