  Cu doar cateva minute in urma Apple a anuntat rezultatele financiare pentru Q2 2014(Q1 2014 pentru restul companiilor) si in ultimele 3 luni de zile a vandut 43.6milioane de iPhone-uri, 16.3 milioane de tablete iPad. 4.1 milioane de Mac-uri, 2.7 milioane de iPod-uri generand 45 de miliarde de dolari in incasari si 10.2 miliarde de dolari profit. Comparand aceste rezultate cu previziunile analistilor, dar si cu estimarile proprii ale companiei, putem trage concluzia ca Apple a reusit sa autodepaseasca, intrecand estimarile analistilor in ceea ce priveste vanzarile de iPhone-uri, insa esuand in ceea ce priveste vanzarile de tablete iPad.

Facand o comparatie in ceea ce priveste profitul vorbim despre o crestere de 700 de milioane de dolari fata de aceeasi perioada a anului trecut, incasarile crescand cu 2 miliarde de dolari. Apple are in momentul de fata 150.6 miliarde de dolari in rezerve monetare si a cheltuit 21 de miliarde de dolari pentru oferirea de dividende actionarilor si achizitionarea de actiuni proprii de pe piata.
