Macs and iPads are selling in record numbers as people continue to work and learn from home. According to Apple's latest earnings report for the third fiscal quarter of 2021 (second calendar quarter), Apple's Mac category brought in $8.8 billion, up from $6.5 billion in the year-ago quarter.

Sales were just a bit down from the second fiscal quarter of 2021, when Apple's Macs brought in $9.1 billion in revenue. iPad revenue was at $7.4 billion, up from $6.6 billion in the year-ago quarter and again, just barely trailing Apple's second quarter earnings results.

According to Apple CEO Tim Cook, the iPad had its best June quarter in nearly a decade, while the Mac set a new June quarter revenue record. Apple CFO Luca Maestri said the last four quarters have been the Mac's best four quarters ever.

The earnings report covers sales of the M1 Mac and iPad machines, including the M1 24-inch iMac and the M1 iPad Pro models that were released earlier this year.

The growth is slower than the broader market, for both of these segments (PC and tablets).

Will be even higher once they release the M1X 14” and 16” MBPs. Feel like I’ve been reading rumors about them for years LOL!

I have never understood why anyone would want a 16" laptop. Not criticising, just trying to relate. Is it a gaming thing or something? :oops:
It’s about having enough screen real estate to work without feeling constrained. I understand someone who travels or commutes with their MacBook preferring a 13 or 14 inch. Usually for me, “travel“ consists of moving to different rooms in my residence, so the size and weight of the 16” aren’t an issue.

When traveling or working outside of home, my 12.9” iPad Pro fills the bill.

Screen size, I personally was hoping they would have launched with a 16 inch too. I could not wait, because I needed a newer Mac and bit the bullet on the 13 inch. Turned out to be a smart decision since I would have been waiting for an eternity. Since the Face ID Macs probably won't be here until 2024, I am just going to get a USB C to VGA adapter for MacBook Pro so I can connect a 20 inch Lenovo display I found on the road side.

I'm so happy that many people's first experience with a Macbook is the M1 iteration. That model should last for literal yeeeaaarrrrs to come with unreal battery life to boot.
