Analysts are reportedly pegging the iPad sales to come down a bit in Q2 2014, while the iPhones are expected to make up for it with a slight increase. They are expecting a decline in the sales of the iPad by 0.7% compared to Q2 2013.
In contrast, last year saw a 55% year-over-year increase in sales, which was largely accounted by the launch of the iPad Mini.
The report said – “The consensus estimate, at 19.3 million, would represent a 0.7% decline, with the pros slightly more optimistic (at 19.4 million) than the amateurs (19.2 million). Dragging down the amateur numbers is the 15 million estimate submitted by the Braeburn Group’s Matt Lew. Tugging in the other direction is Horace Dediu’s 21.8 million. One represents a year-over-year decline of 23%, the other an increase of 12%.“
With Apple expected to launch the second gen iPad Air as well as the Retina Display iPad Mini, the fall in sales might only be short term. The company is expected to launch a completely revamped iPhone lineup in September as well, so this could well be the biggest year for the Cupertino manufacturer ever since the first iPhone was launched.
