This afternoon Apple has shared their financial Q1 2014 results with the public, showing that, in the quarter leading up to the 30th anniversary of the Apple/Mac connection, the company continues to increase sales. This quarter’s revenue racked up a cool $6.3 million compared to $5.6 million the quarter before and $5.5 million one year ago at this time.
Meanwhile Mac sales reached 4.8 million units this quarter, pushing Apple to grow sales for another quarter in a row. Last quarter Apple sold 4.5 million units in the Mac category, while one year ago at this time Apple sold a cool 4.061 million units. This accounts for a 6% increase sequentially for units sold with a 14% revenue boost.
Compared to last year at this time, Mac sales are up by 16% revenue-wise, while units sold are up 19%. This is especially good news for Apple as the PC market continues to take a bit of a turn – though Microsoft’s own Windows sales are looking comparatively bright this most recent quarter as well.
