Apple 2011 Q1 iPad, iPhone Sales Estimate
Using Apple’s “sold over” 108 million iPhone, 60 million iPod touch, and over 19 million iPad by March 2011, Nilay Patel calculates a conservative 2011 Apple iOS device sales:
- Total iPhones sold before Q1: 89,971,000 implying a minimum of 18.1 million sold during the quarter (my estimate is 18.4)
- Total iPod touch sold before Q1 (estimated): 55.5 million implying a minimum of 4.5 million iPod touch sold during the quarter (my estimate 5 million)
- Total iPads sold before Q1: 14,789,000 implying a minimum of 4.2 million iPads sold during the quarter (my estimate is 7.3 million).
Apple is set to announce its official quarterly earning report tomorrow. We’ll know more then.
