With all 34 analysts having revealed their predictions, the consensus view is for year-on-year revenue to have grown by 8.5 percent, with earnings up 18.1 percent …
Unsurprisingly, the bulk of that growth is expected to be from iPhone sales, which are expected to have climbed by 14.5 percent. CIRP yesterday indicated that Q3 sales are likely to include a higher percentage of flagship models than was the case last year.
Mac sales, accessory sales and iTunes revenues are all expected to be up on last year, while iPad sales are predicted to be flat. iPod sales are expected to have almost halved, Apple describing it as a “declining business.”
As ever, we’ll bring you the actual numbers as soon as Apple announces them, with live coverage of the earnings call that follows.
