Apple beats on Q4 earnings after strong quarter for wearables, services – TechCrunch

Apple’s iPhone sales  still make up over half of its quarterly revenues but they are slowly shrinking in importance as other divisions in the company pick up speed.

Apple’s stock remained largely unchanged after-hours following the release of its Q4 earnings. The company delivered earnings per share $3.03 versus the street’s estimate of $2.84 Est. on revenue of $64 billion compared with expectation at $62.99 billion.

The big story continues to be major growth in Services, iPad and Wearables while iPhone and Mac sales continue to shrink year-over-year.

As you’ll remember Apple no longer reports unit sales of its iPhone, Mac and iPad lines, something that is largely the result of declining unit sales and higher average selling prices. Services, Wearables and Other, and iPad saw year-over-year gains, while the iPhone and Mac lines are still seeing revenue slumps.

  • iPhone sales were down 9% year-over-year to $33.36 billion
  • Services were up 18% YoY to $12.5 billion
  • Mac sales were down 5% YoY to $6.99 billion
  • “Wearables, Home, and Accessories” were up 54% YoY to $6.52 billion:
  • iPad sales were up 17% YoY to $4.66 billion

The company is continuing to add to some of its highest growth businesses. The company announced the release of a new high-end set of AirPods yesterday which will likely increase average selling prices among its wearables division. The company also has a number of paid services including Apple TV+ that will be launching soon.
