Although Apple no longer delivers individual sales of its products, iPhone sales continue to struggle. The revenue for this quarter for the iPhone was down 17.3% to $ 31.0 billion, and this is at a time when the unit price is highest in the iPhone story. What once seemed an unstoppable force has met the irreversible goal of market saturation.
Mac sales were also down, but only 4.5%, with revenues of $ 5.5 billion in the quarter. As with the iPhone, we are no longer interested in the unit's sales figures though.
iPad has seen a bit of a resurgence after several years of income reduction. iPad revenue increased by 21.5% in Q2 2018, with sales of $ 4.9 billion for the quarter. Here, Apple has not only increased the price of its Pro models, but also lowered the entry-level price of the basic iPad, and this two-sided approach seems to have helped correct the falling sales, at least for now.
Apple's ever-expanding list of products in their Accessories group continues to do well, so much so that the group is now called Wearables, Home and Accessories. Lack of an Oxford comma can be forgiven since this segment had revenues, rising 30% to $ 5.1 billion in the quarter.
Finally, Apple Services segment continues to grow, thanks to the 1.4 billion active units. Services that include iTunes, Apple Music, iCloud and other products grew 16.2% to $ 11.4 billion. If you share it with active devices, Apple generates $ 8.18 per unit in service fees in just three months.
