Apple sales are expecting a slight increase after three straight quarters of declining iPhone sales, and the company’s first sales drop in 10 years.
USA Today Tech reports Apple sales are anticipated to rise to $77.1 billion, a 1.5 percent increase from $75.9 billion last year. The anticipated growth is thought of as a response to increased iPhone shipments, which researchers anticipate grew from 74.8 million last year to 78 million this year.
Some experts indicate the iPhone’s new success may be fleeting, since there is no shortage of more affordable smartphones on the market, but others disagree. This year marks the release of the highly-anticipated 10-year anniversary iPhone, which could reignite iPhone excitement.
