To hit guidance of $52b, Apple has to sell…
(Possibly more interesting for people who own AAPL)
Looking at Q1 and Q4 of Apple's results in 2012:
- iPhone has typically represented about 50% of Apple's revenue with an average revenue of roughly $660 per iPhone
- iPad has typically represented about 20% of Apple's revenue with an average revenue of roughly $540 per iPad (I'm assuming it'd drop to something like $400 per iPad taking the iPad mini into consideration).
- Macs have typically represented about 15% of Apple's revenue with an average revenue of roughly $1,100 per Mac.
- The remaining comes from iPods (which will probably shrink with increasing iPhone/iPad sales), iTunes Store and others (both of which should increase with more iOS devices).
Thus, Apple has to sell about:
- 40 million iPhones
- 26 million iPads
- 7 million Macs
