Apple’s earnings announcements are shocking places to learn about upcoming iPhones, in large part because the company steadfastly refuses to answer any questions about unannounced products. Indeed, the iPhone 14 That likely arrived in the fall didn’t come today (July 28) as Apple spoke with Wall Street analysts about its record revenue for the company’s third quarter of fiscal year, which ended in June.
However, while there was no concrete information about the iPhone 14 during the quarterly earnings talk, if I were to expect iPhone 14 release date sometime in september in Apple eventI’ll be fine after the Apple conference call. This is largely due to the releases of upcoming Apple phones he did not do Come at all.
If you have a long memory, you might consider going back to two years ago, when the consequences of the initial Covid-19 shutdowns hit businesses hard. Apple has not been immune, warning investors during its June 2020 quarter earnings call that the usual September iPhone release will be pushed back. According to Apple’s word, iPhone 12 It didn’t appear until an October event, with some models only shipping in November.
There was nothing along the lines of that kind of warning on today’s call, as Apple instead focused on how to work its way through supply constraints and other economic headwinds to actually record sales for the June quarter. Revenue was just under $83 billion in the June quarter, up just 1.9% from the same period last year, but it’s nonetheless a record high.
“Overall, we’re very pleased with the results,” CEO Tim Cook told analysts during the earnings conference. “And when you think about the number of challenges in the quarter, we feel really good about the growth that we put in.”
A 12% jump in revenue from services — all those subscription-based offerings that Apple now offers combined with products like Apple Pay — helped Apple hit its sales record, as did a better-than-expected quarter for the iPhone. Apple sold nearly $40.7 billion worth of smartphones for the quarter, up 3% from the previous year the company attributed to iPhone 13 The continued warm reception from the group and the fact that smartphones did not face the same supply constraints that hit the Mac and iPad businesses.
It’s Apple’s guidance for the quarter ending in September – the same period as the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro Likely to appear – it really caught my eye. Apple told analysts it expects its revenue growth to accelerate year-over-year compared to the June quarter with fewer supply constraints than it has been facing recently. While this last bit of guidance likely applies to products that Apple already ships, it doesn’t read too much into the statement to assume that products launched as soon as this year’s iPhone release may be in good shape.
This may completely contradict some of the rumors that have been circulating lately, particularly about iPhone 14 Max. This is the 6.7-inch phone that will likely replace the mini model in Apple’s lineup this fall. Some leaks suggested that the new model was lagging behind the iPhone 14 Pro Max in lineup of displays – the larger iPhone 14 Pro model is expected to feature a 6.7-inch panel like the iPhone 14 Max – raising concerns that at least some may be delayed. iPhone 14 for the first time.
For now, that doesn’t seem to be the case, at least given the lack of any warning from Apple and its repeated assertions that it is successfully dealing with supply issues with its other product lines.
I flew September 13 Penciled in our calendars as the likely day for Apple to announce the iPhone. There’s nothing I heard on Apple’s last earnings call that makes me want to crack the eraser.
