Apple Set to Break Records, but All Eyes on March

iPhone 6 - Apple's biggest phone yet?

iPhone 6 – Apple’s biggest phone yet?

On Tuesday January 27th, Apple will announce the results of its fiscal first quarter of 2015. Way back in October 2014, Apple told investors to expect total sales somewhere in the range of $63.5 to $66.5 billion—representing, at the midpoint, 15% growth from fiscal Q1 2014.

But that seems conservative according to some analysts. Onlookers have been pining over the iPhone sales numbers, which with a full quarter of iPhone 6 sales seem to be mind blowing—but who really knows? In addition, we know iPad sales are likely to continue a decline (a slow one?) and the Mac is doing just fine according to IDC’s skeptical numbers. So all in all, we’re looking at a BIG quarter.
