Apple's Most Selling Products Of All Time:


A record-setting quarter for Apple’s iPad led to a better-than-anticipated second quarter for the tablet market, according to preliminary data from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide

Quarterly Media Tablet Tracker. Total worldwide tablet shipments for the second quarter of 2012 (2Q12) are estimated at 25 million units; up from 18.7 in the first quarter of 2012. That represents a quarter-over-quarter increase of 33.6% and a robust year-over-year growth rate of 66.2%, up from 15 million units in the second quarter of 2011. IDC will release final shipment totals for the quarter later this month.



 Apple’s iPad represented 97.2% of U.S. tablet web traffic in August,according to comScore. That is incredible dominance, given that it’s already been 1.5 years since the iPad went on sale.

The  Revenue chart ( source :Asymco ) shows which Apple products has been its best selling
  • The Mac business generates more Revenue than Windows
  • iOS powered devices generate more revenue than all of Microsoft’s products put together
  • Apple’s revenues grew 413% since Q2 2007 while Microsoft’s grew 26%
  • The release of Windows 7 had a marked effect on revenues in the launch quarter but the sales did not seem to grow above the previous version’s run rate ($4.2b/quarter vs. $4.7b/q on average).
But most importantly, whereas Apple’s growth has come from new businesses (iPhone and iPad), Microsoft has organically grown existing businesses. The condemnation of leadership at Microsoft should hinge on the absence of significant top line growth. Note that neither the Online Services nor the Entertainment and Devices divisions had appreciable net growth.

 PC sales will come back to normal post the launch of Windows 8 in October,2012 and will l be directly responsible for boosting the flat U.S. PC market into a period of moderate growth next year. This was according to the latest IDC  research study in August,2012

IDC projected forecast is  attributing 5 percentage points of U.S. PC market unit growth to Windows 8. 2013 will see worldwide PC sales rebounding  and expected to  jump from 0.9% this year to 6.5%, with growth accelerating to 7.0% and 7.5% in 2014 and 2015, respectively. Much of that demand will come from emerging markets, whose residents are still buying their first PCs, as well as purchasing Windows 8 replacements for those they already own.

|Meanwhile that PC sales have started slowing down, due to Tablets and Smartphones was evident with   IDC  forecasting  367 million PCs will ship into the market in 2012, up less than 1% from 2011 and marking the second consecutive year of growth below 2%,
