Apple’s shares experienced a decline following the tech giant’s report of a drop in revenues during the second quarter.
The decrease was largely attributed to a 2.4% year-on-year decline in iPhone sales, which account for nearly half of the company’s total revenues. Despite the decline in revenues, Apple’s net profit managed to increase by 2.3%.
The shift in it’s business highlights the company’s growing emphasis on digital services. Over the past 12 months, the number of subscribers to services like iCloud has surged by a significant 150 million, indicating a shift towards a more service-oriented approach.
As the smartphone market becomes increasingly competitive, Apple seems to be diversifying its revenue streams by focusing on its digital service offerings. This move could provide a stable and recurring source of income for the company while reducing its reliance on iPhone sales.
Investors and analysts will closely monitor how Apple continues to capitalize on its digital services and whether this strategic shift will enable the company to maintain its growth trajectory in the face of evolving market dynamics.
