As people continue to work and learn from home, Macs and iPads are selling in record numbers, according to Apple’s latest earnings report for the second fiscal quarter of 2021 (first calendar quarter).
Apple’s Mac category brought in $9.1 billion in revenue, up from $5.4 billion in the year-ago quarter. As for iPads, Apple saw iPad revenue of $7.8 billion, up from $4.4 billion in the year-ago quarter. The iPad saw its highest March quarter revenue record in nearly a decade, and the last three quarters have marked the best Mac sales ever.
According to Apple CFO Luca Maestri, “more than half” of the sales of Macs and iPads during the quarter were from customers who were new to the devices and had not previously owned one.
iPad and Mac sales could continue to grow even more in the coming quarter following the launch of the new M1 iPad Pro and iMac models.
