iPhone sales grow 58%,iPad sales exceed 14million in Q3,2012

The iPhone  sales machine does not show any drastic signs of slowing down as  results from Apple's Q3,2012  sales report shows that it has sold 26.9 million iPhones, up 58% from the year-earlier period and above analyst predictions of between 24 million and 26 million. The quarter, which ended Sept. 29, included about a week of sales of Apple's new iPhone 5. Apple sold 14 million iPads, up 26% from last year but below many estimates.

The iPad grew shipments at 26% y/y but “sales” as measured by sell-through were up 44%.
Overall, the company's revenue rose 27% in the quarter ending in September, while profit rose 24%. But the iPhone numbers, slightly higher than analysts were expected, weren't enough for investors to cheer. Also weighing on them: lower-than-expected iPad sales and concerns about the company's profit margins. Apple issued revenue guidance for the quarter ending in December of $52 billion, about $3 billion below analysts' expectations.

iPhone 5 first weekend sales are just statistics

Apple® today announced it has sold over five million of its new iPhone® 5, just three days after its launch on September 21, and more than 100 million iOS devices have been updated w

So how good  number is that?  Apple sold 5 million iPhone5s in its first weekend, up from 4 million iPhone 4Ss last year. Is this the biggest and larget selling products of all times

This number isn’t 10 million or even 8 million or 6 million, so some are saying that it’s “WORSE THAN EXPECTED” or “verydisappointing”. his is well below what Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster was calling for. He predicted 6-10 million for the opening weekend.

However  whatever analysts has to say on the first week sales, for a company of Apple size
One week of sale  hardly makes a difference   as Splatf explains. Some of the reasons why the iphone sales in the opening week are just statistics are

For the real story, you need to think about supply anddemand, and once again, demand surpassed supply.
Mobile is a complicated industry where 2-year contracts often dictate purchase decisions.
First-weekend sales just aren’t that important relative to an iPhone’s lifetime sales.
iPhone 5 is available in the US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and the UK, and will be available in 22 more countries on September 28 and more than 100 countries by the end of the year

250million iPhones sold in 5 Years , 50% Sold in last 18 Months

n less than 5 years, the iPhone has become Apple’s most important product: in the 2011 fiscal year, iPhone revenue amounted to 47 billion U.S. dollars, representing more than 40 percent of Apple's total revenue. In the third quarter of 2011, 15 percent of all smartphones sold to end users were phones with the iOS operating system

The Above data published by Asymco shows Apple's Employment chart during the  5 Years of iPhone production.Apple created a total of 35,852 retail jobs

Apple Has Shipped 250 Million iPhones In The Past Five Years - Business Insider: "Apple has shipped 250 million iPhones worldwide since the product launched back in 2007, according to new data from Strategy Analytics, a global research firm.

While the first five years have been good for the iPhone, Strategy Analytics suggests the next five could prove to be more challenging as carriers rethink the cost of subsidizing the phone and Apple faces greater competition from companies like Samsung."

 Apple is looking to expand into new markets abroad, perhaps most notably by partnering with China Mobile, a wireless carrier with more than 650 million subscribers. And Apple is expanding into new markets at home by finally making the iPhone available on the prepaid market.

In terms of  contribution to American Economy In the five years since the iPhone launched, Apple created a total of 35,852 retail jobs.Some of those jobs came from new store openings. The total store count went from 172 to 361, more than doubling. But the growth in employment was faster: from about 6400 to 42,200, more than quintupling. This is reflected in the total number of employees per store which increased from 37 in Q1 2007 to 117 in Q1 2012.

Apple's China Story Falls Apart,as the iPhone gets knocked from No 1 to No 5

Source: StatCounter Global Stats - Mobile Vendor (Beta) Market Share

While Apple became the world's largest smartphone vendor late last year, with a market share rise from 15.8% a year earlier to 23.8%, it slipped to fifth place in China, according to report released Wednesday by research firm Gartner.
As Chinese firms gradually shift toward the higher end of the market, Apple fell to fifth place in the country and was overtaken by domestic low-end smartphone maker ZTE. Apple's share of the Chinese smartphone market slid to 7.5%, from 10.4% for the July-September period of last year.
 "Chinese handset makers  have been have been actively promoting their smartphones with China's three telecoms operators, and local vendors like  ZTE and Huawei  stood to gain gain significant market share. Samsung replaced  Nokia with 24.3 per cent of the market, more than three times Apple's share. Nokia's market share more than halved last year, from above 40 % in  first quarter to below one fifth by the fourth quarter 2011. Gartner attributed ZTE's considerable success — 71 percent growth sequentially — to strong consumer interest in low-cost smartphones.
In the first quarter of last year, ZTE had a market share of just 3 percent, but ended 2011 ranked 4th with more than 11 percent market share.

iPhone 4S Pre Orders ! One Million and Counting

iOS 5 includes a new Messages feature for sending messages to other iOS devices for free, no texting required.

iOS 5 is the new version of Apple's mobile OS. It includes revamped notifications, a new Messages feature and deep integration with Twitter.

One of the Most Important feature in iPhone4s is the voice controlled "Intelligent Assistant that can complete tasks based on natural language.

Allaying any doubts that the iPhone 4S will be a big seller, Apple announced pre-orders for the new model topped 1 million in 24 hours, which breaks the previous single-day record of 600,000 for the iPhone 4.

In a press release posted on — the company’s first public statement since Steve Jobs’s death — Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide product marketing, said he was “blown away” by the consumer response to the iPhone 4S.

Apple began taking pre-orders on the phone on Friday, three days after the company introduced it in a press conference and two days after Jobs died. The iPhone 4S will go on sale in the U.S. at 8 a.m. local time on Friday, Oct. 14. The phone comes in black and white and will be available for a suggested retail price of $199 for the 16 GB model, $299 for the 32 GB version and $399 for the 64 GB model.

The strong pre-orders come after some, who expected an iPhone 5, were underwhelmed by Apple’s iPhone 4S announcement. However, Apple’s deviation from its usual iPhone shipping schedule — new phones have been announced every summer since 2007 until now — has created pent-up demand for the device.

iPhone 5 Launch Day Sales Expected at 1.7 Million

Iphone  Sales  per Quarter
Apple's reported decision to release a new iPhone in the fall, as opposed to the summer, will deliver massive sales, writes RBC analyst Mike Abramsky in a note.

RBC surveyed 2,200 consumers and found "unprecedented demand," with 31% of consumers very/somewhat likely to buy an iPhone 5, which is stronger than the 25% of consumers that were very/somewhat likely to buy an iPhone 4, when RBC did the same sort of survey before it launched.

 Sources in the Industry says that Apple's delay could cause a bigger upgrade from existing iPhone owners, since the iPhone 4 is 15 months old. He says 66% of existing iPhone owners are very/somewhat likely to buy a new iPhone.

If Apple  manages to sell 110 million iPhones, it will generates $140 billion in sales overall, and earns $34.50 per share for fiscal 2012. Apple reported $12.3 billion in iPhone sales last quarter, half of its overall revenue, and up 126% year-over-year.

Wall Street analysts are already predicting record first day sales for Apple’s iPhone 5.
Demand and anticipation for a new iPhone is always high, but thanks to a 16-month gap between the release of the iPhone 4 and its successor, customers are more excited about the iPhone 5 than ever.

In 2010, the iPhone 4 moved 1.7 million units in its first three days of release and was Apple’s most successful product launch ever. Apple's iPhone has gone from zero to half of Apple's revenue in less than 4 years.

The real story for Apple continues to be the iPhone which did $13.3 billion in sales for the quarter. The iPhone and iPad are now 66% of Apple's sales, impressive considering how relatively new the products are.

Two new studies have revealed rising interest in Apple’s forthcoming iPhone 5 from North American and UK mobile users at the expense of rival mobile platforms from Google and Research in Motion.

One study conducted by mobile ad network InMobi reveals that 41% of mobile phone users in U.S., Mexico and Canada want to buy the iPhone 5 in the future. Of those interested in the device, 50% would purchase it in the first six months after launch.

The same survey suggests that customer interest will be significantly lower in case Apple announces a softer iPhone update, “akin to the 3GS version of the iPhone that Apple released in 2009.” In this instance fewer than 15% of mobile users would buy such a device.

Analyzing customer retention and new users, InMobi says its data indicates that 51% of current iPhone owners would switch to the iPhone 5 but that only 11% of them would choose a so-called iPhone 4S.

As for current BlackBerry & Android users, 52% and 27%, respectively, said they would choose the iPhone 5. In the event Apple announces only an iPhone 4S model, fewer BlackBerry and Android device owners would be likely to make the switch to iOS – 28% and 11%, respectively.

In a second study covering the UK, research firm InMobi found similar responses.

For instance, 39% of mobile users in that study said they want to buy an iPhone 5 with 48% of them committed to purchasing the device in the first six months from launch. Only 12% of them said they'd buy an iPhone 4S.

At the same time, 62% of UK iPad users said they plan to purchase a iPhone 5, while 45% of BlackBerry users and 24% of Android device owners said they would purchase the upcoming handset. Interest in an iPhone 4S was also significantly lower in the UK market, at 25%, 7% and 18%, respectively.

When asked what potential features of a new iPhone they'd find most appealing, survey respondents said they'd want “improved battery life, increased processing speed, higher-quality screen resolution and stronger phone service.”
