Apple’s revenue will hit a new high in the fourth quarter of 2021- Gizchina.com
Apple usually releases next-generation iPhones in the fall. Thus, the new iPhones will go on sale in the fourth quarter of a year. This is the best time for shopping. So not in vain, it’s called the holiday district. But for Apple, it’s the first fiscal quarter of the fiscal year. Nothing has changed in 2021, so Apple’s operating revenue is expected to hit a new high.
Morgan Stanley’s Katy Huberty predicted in the report that Apple’s revenue in the first quarter of fiscal 2022 is expected to reach $122.3 billion. This figure is significantly higher than the $111.4 billion in the same period last year, an increase of more than $10 billion.
Well, Apple doesn’t just sell iPhones. But Apple’s first-quarter revenue will top $120 billion and hit a new all-time high thanks in large part to iPhone sales. Analysts also said the iPhone will beat expectations this quarter. According to their calculations, there will be over 83 million units shipped.
The analyst also pointed out that Mac’s estimates are also slightly higher than expected. But she didn’t think the same about the iPad. Indeed, it cut its iPad shipment forecast to 14.9 million units from 17 million units.
Another prediction, Wall Street analysts currently expect Apple’s first-quarter revenue of $118.3 billion, which is also higher than the $111.4 billion in the same period. last year.
The iPhone 13 works quite well
It should also be pointed out that the iPhone 13 appeared on the market more than its predecessor. This refers to both announcement and time to market.
In fact, the iPhone 13 had the longest delivery time. Let’s say in November 2021, the delivery times for the iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max were 5, 5, 23 and 23 days respectively. But that didn’t entice customers to switch to Android. We want to say that there was even a time when the delivery time of iPhone 13 Pro reached 36 days, but it was still demanded.
In fact, there was no area that was unaffected by the token shortage issue. This also concerns the smartphone sector. Moreover, Apple could not avoid it too. Although iPhone 13 sales have been badly hit by this issue, the Wall Street Journal believes “some supply chain issues may be showing early signs of recovery.” Right now is not the right time to think that this problem will be fixed soon. According to various analyses, it will continue for at least a year. Customers must therefore take this into account and behave accordingly.
