Apple is currently the subject of doom and gloom from some analysts that believe the company has an unclear long-term strategy. However, at least at a consumer level things are still running smoothly for Apple and the company’s sales for the fiscal first quarter of 2013 show yet again that stories of lower demand are greatly exaggerated.
Apple products are still the benchmark at least in terms of sales. The company announced it sold 47.8 million iPhones and 22.9 million iPads during the 90-day Q1 period. That amounts to 6 iPhones sold every second and 3 iPads per second.
So missing Wall Street estimates is one thing, but there looks like no sign that Apple is on the wane, at least not for the time being. The company also revealed that 2 million Apple TVs were sold in the same timeframe, while its latest iMac range is currently sold out and will not be re-stocked for a few more weeks.
