Even if we don’t get clear numbers, is rumored that in this 2nd quarter, Apple managed to ship 18 – 20 million iPhones in China, and just 14 – 15 million phones in US. In the same quarter, the Cupertino-based company recorded a $12.6 billion of net income and $56 billion in revenue.

According to this report, the main reason why the iPhones sales were bigger in China stands behind the fact that recently China celebrated New Year, so a lot of people decided to start the new year with an iPhone 6 or an iPhone 6 Plus in their pocket.

 

We also get to know that Apple sold just 7.2 million iPads this quarter, compared to the 10 million tablets shipped in the previous quarter.
