Slump in iPad sales as Apple leans on iPhone for growth
July 23 , 2014
There has been a slump in sales of the iPad, with some analysts predicting that the decline in demand may be permanent.
Sales of the Apple tablet have fallen from a high of 26 million before Christmas to 13.3 million. As a result, the computer firm is now more dependent on the iPhone, which has sold 35.2 million units, a 13% rise compared to the same period last year.
Tim Cook, Apple’s chief executive, said the company has an “incredible pipeline” of new products and services waiting to be unveiled.
