AAPL Q2 2022 earnings details
In the wake of a record-breaking holiday quarter in Q1 2022, analysts had high expectations for Q2 2022. Apple was expected to report total revenue of $95.51B, against $89.58B for the same quarter last year and EPS of $1.53.
Wall Street also saw growth for the iPhone, Mac, Wearables, and Services businesses, but a decline for iPad revenue.
Again, Apple did not provide any guidance for the quarter, citing supply-side disruptions as the reason. Ongoing COVID-19 disruptions and supply shortages continue to impact Apple’s revenue and its ability to predict future numbers.
Apple no longer reports unit sales for any of its products but instead reports a breakdown of revenue by product category. Here is the full breakdown for the fiscal Q2 2022:
- iPhone: $50.57 billion (Up 5.5% YOY)
- Mac: $10.43 billion (Up 14.3% YOY)
- iPad: $7.65 billion (Down 2.2% YOY)
- Wearables: $8.82 billion (Up 12.2% YOY)
- Services: $19.82 billion (Up 17.2% YOY)
Apple has also announced a cash dividend of $0.23 per share of its common stock, an increase of 5%. Additionally, the board of directors approved an increase of $90 billion to the existing share repurchase program.
