Speculation iPhone 8 could be delayed as Apple prepares to report its results tomorrow

Speculation iPhone 8 could be delayed as Apple prepares to report its results tomorrow

The fourth quarter predictions will be somewhere between $49 billion and $52 billion, according to Apple's report.

Apple said it also set a new all-time record in service revenue, up 22 percent year-on-year to United States dollars 7.27 billion.

We have a $154 price estimate for Apple, which is slightly below the current market price. Ahead of this, Apple has relied on growth in the rest of its product portfolio, particularly in services. This marked a 2% gain year-over-year. Hitting an all-time quarterly record, Apple was also able to get its Services division into becoming a Fortune 100 company. Revenues from the division are now $5 billion.

CFO Luca Maestri noted that all five of the company's product groups saw a year-over-year increase in revenue.

These results compare to revenue of $42.4 billion and earnings per diluted share of $1.42 in the year-ago second quarter, the company said in a statement late on Tuesday.

For now, Apple is in a complete holding pattern.

There was no immediate word in the earnings press release about the next iPhone.

The high-end iPhone will include an organic light-emitting diode screen, and inadequate OLED supplies mean that it will not be as readily available as the cheaper handsets at launch, Bloomberg reported citing people familiar with the plans.

Unexpected sales news August 1 had to do with a resurgence in the iPad-in particular, the new, larger version.

"Not only is $7.3 billion in revenue hugely significant in its own right, it underlines the ecosystem advantage it has over its competitors outside of China".

Apple said it sold 11.4 million iPads in the quarter, a 15% increase on the same period past year. The iPhone series remains to account for about 55% of Apple's revenue.

The results also topped the estimates of analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters, who forecast Apple to earn $1.57 a share on $44.9 billion in revenue.

Revenue in the three months ended in June declined 7%, year over year, to $45.4 billion, yielding EPS of $1.67.

Despite this Apple said the number of iPhones sold in the quarter increased a solid 2% year-on-year, driven by strong demand in markets such as Latin America and the Middle East. It also sold 4.3 million Mac units.

Barclays analyst Mark Moskowitz described the newfound "help from other segments" as being "an important development" for Apple. The company hasn't broken out sales of its individual products, including the closely watched Apple Watch.

Apple still clearly has its challenges.
