Apple just released its quarterly earnings report and it is safe to say that the company has had a stellar second quarter of 2017.
Some key figures: US$45.4 billion in revenue, US$8.7 billion in profit, 41 million iPhones sold, and 4.29 million Macs sold.
However, one of the most important figures is that sales of iPads returned to growth year-over-year for the first time since 2013.
Apple sold 11.92 million iPads in the last quarter, and this compares favorably to the 8.92 million units sold in the previous quarter. It is also substantially more than the 9.95 million units sold in the same quarter last year.
These numbers far exceeded analysts predictions. Most of them believed that sales of iPads would continue to fall.
Apple released the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro in July, and also introduced a new iPad in March. It seems like these new products are a hit amongst users.
