It seems that the iPhone Story is just about to come down to a realistic levels ,sales are still strong in volume terms, year-over-year sales growth is showing signs of desparation
Q1, 2013, iPhone sales were up only 7 per cent from the same quarter a year prior, the lowest year-over-year growth since the iPhone’s introduction in 2007.
iPad sales growth, meanwhile, was strong this quarter, up 65 per cent year-over-year on the heels of the iPad Mini’s launch in November 2012.
Over 37 million iPhones sold is nothing to scoff at, but the iPhone may have limited upside for sales expansion. The smartphone market globally is still due for significant growth, but the the stubbornly high average selling price of iPhones gives it a limited potential market.
