At Apple, they can end this year 2020 with very good numbers. After learning that the iPhone 12 was the world’s best-selling 5G smartphone in October, the leaked figures are now from AppleInsider, which comes from Goldman Sachs. And according to these figures, Mac sales reportedly increased 50% from last year
These are estimates by analyst Rod Hall, who gives several reasons for this sharp increase in sales. Hall believes global computer sales are on the rise due to teleworking caused by the pandemic, more than even Goldman Sachs estimated (an 11% increase) to be 18% more than in the third quarter of 2019.
More computers sold, more expensive
The average price of each personal computer purchased is $ 764Macs would therefore cover the spectrum of high-end sales. Keep in mind that these are analyst estimates, not official Apple sales figures. The closest to that will be the revenue figures which will be revealed at the next financial results press conference at the end of January.
The future looks bright for this sector for now: 2021 will continue to have restrictions (with the hope that they will be less so thanks to the vaccine), so that the demand for computers will remain high. And also, the arrival of M1 chips and candies like a redesigned iMac, they can be another incentive for more purchases.
