Apple Expected to Ship 10-12 million iPad Units in 3Q13


iphone6_concept3Digitimes, Taiwan-based news outlet, is reporting that Apple’s iPad shipments will drop to only 10-12 million units in the third quarter, down from 14.6 million units in the second quarter.

This is mainly due to consumers waiting for the company to release its next-generation iPad and iPad mini.

The report went on to suggest that Apple shipments for 2Q2013 were – 10-11 million units iPad minis and 3.6-4.6 million units 9.7-inch iPads.

“In addition to seasonal factors and lacking new products, Android-based tablet price-cut promotions also affected Apple’s iPad shipments in the second quarter,” Max Wang and Joseph Tsai report for Digitimes. “In the first quarter, global tablet shipments were about 50 million units, with Android-based tablets accounting for 27.8 million units, a share of about 50% and iPads accounting for about 40%.”

I’ve crunched some numbers and here are a few interesting facts about Apple’s earnings results for last quarter:


Apple sold 238 iPhones per minute last quarter. That is approx. 4 iPhones every second.


Apple sold  111 per minute last quarter and nearly 2 iPads every second.
