The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have only been on sale for a few months, but they are already proving to be a commercial hit, to the extent that Apple is set to make record profits of around £11.87 billion.
TechCrunch reports that in the last quarter, Apple has taken more in cash than any other company in the IT industry at any point in the past for the same period. It even managed to outdo businesses in other fields, including some in the energy market.
As well as selling bucket loads of iPhones in the UK and the US, Apple has been helped enormously by being able to open up the Chinese market to its smartphones in recent weeks.
Year on year, the sales of iPhones in this quarter went from 51 million in 2013 to 74.5 million in 2014, which is rapid growth, even for Apple.
The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have been a shot in the arm for Apple at a time when it looked like its sales were stagnating. Now all it needs to do is perform the same trick with its iPad range and it will remain a force to be reckoned with in the business world.
