iPhone, iPad, Mac sales in FQ2 2021 take flying leap over last year

Services and Mac revenue reached an all-time high for Apple's financial Q2, 2021. Revenue overall was up 54 percent to reach a new all-time-high for this quarter. It should perhaps have been expected that Apple's year here in 2021 would be better than last. Last year was a bit of a surprise to the world at large, given COVID-19 and the pandemic that it brought.

Apple is now addressing part of those complaints with its Independent Repair Provider program for third-party repair shops that is now expanding to almost every country where Apple products are sold.

Apple's M1 chips have definitely been hot items in the computing world but their availability has been limited to two kinds of devices only. The M1 MacBooks and M1 Mac minis cater to just one segment of Apple's customers and still leave some desktop users, particularly Apple's Mac Pro and iMac customers.
