iPhone sales grow 26% , while iPad Sales Flounder

iPhone sales grow 26 per cent but the desire for iPads dries up | Mobile content industry news | Mobile Entertainment: "Apple announced that it had sold 33.8 million iPhones breaking September quarterly records, compared to the 26.9 million sold the same time last year.

However iPads have not experienced the same success, as limp from 14 million in 2012 to 14.1 million in Q4.

This could be an indication that the iPad has become too expensive in such a competitive market, filled with cheaper options that do pretty much the same thing."
Although overall quarterly revenue hit $37.5 billion with a net profit of $7.5 billion, compared to last years revenue, which came in at $36 billion, with 60 per cent of this year revenue coming from international sales.

Apple sold 5.4 million fewer iPads last quarter,than it did in the same three months a year ago. That’s despite having introduced a whole new iPad, the Mini, in the intervening year. The drop in iPad sales, from 17 million to 14.6 million, is all the more surprising because iPhone sales continued to grow, from 26 million to 31.2 million.
