Apple sold over 61m iPhones in Q1 2015

"Apple’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus continue their hit parade, building on a massive first quarter of 2015 with a very strong second quarter total of 61.2 million handsets sold. This isn’t an all-time quarterly record, but it’s normal to see a slight decrease quarter-over-quarter coming out of a launch sales period, and this is a huge increase year-over-year compared to the 43.7 million iPhone sales sold during Q2 2014. This is the second highest total for quarterly iPhone sales from Apple of all time, besting the 51 million from Q1 2014 it beat with Q1 2015’s 74.5 million sales by a wide margin.
The iPhone may have seen big gains year-over-year, but in what’s becoming a common refrain, iPad sales continued to be less than impressive. The iPad saw only 12.6 million sales during Q2 2015, compared to 16 million in the year-ago quarter, and 21.4 million during Q1 2015. The iPad was expected to sell around 14 million units according to consensus analyst estimates, while the iPhone predictions pegged total sales at around 58 million units for the quarter, so Apple handily blew those away.
The Q2 2015 iPhone sales represent 40 percent growth year-over-year, while the iPad’s sales slid over 21 percent compared to the year-ago, three-month period."
