Apple Inc’s revenue for the first quarter reached GHc510,137,465,400 or $91.8 billion, mainly due to its wearables.
The company positioned itself for the strongest holiday season in its history as it trimmed the prices of most iPhone models ahead of the 2019 holiday.
It, therefore, launched a number of new services in a bid to boost its subscription numbers.
An announcement of its fiscal first-quarter 2020 results left everyone surprised; a $91.8 billion in quarterly revenue compared to $84.3 in the year 2019 as well as $88.3 in the first quarter of 2018.
Per a report by venturebeat.com, the result is significant because the company provided a wide estimate range in the range last quarter, predicting revenues between $85.5 and $89.5 billion.
These numbers were higher than its famously troubled pre-holiday performance but potentially either falling short or exceeding the 2018 holiday season.
In the light of Apple’s history of offering and exceeding high quarterly growth estimates, the range appeared to imply that there is uncertainty over the impact of tariffs as a result of the current US-China trade dispute, currency exchange rates, and consumer demand for late-stage 4G phones.
YEN.com.gh understands that all of the issues were however resolved in favour of the company.
