Apple Services Revenue Growth Outshines Other SegmentsBy
In Apple’s second-quarter results, the standout is services revenue, up 31 percent from a year ago and 8 percent from the preceding three months. That sequential growth in services contrasts with a sequential decline in every other segment. That’s sales from the App Store, iTunes, Apple Music and Apple Pay of $9.2 billion in the quarter.
- Apple has recently started offering cheaper student pricing and family plans for Apple Music.
- Apple recently said Apple Music has 40 million users.
- Fun fact: Apple’s quarterly service revenue is more than three times Twitter’s annual sales.
