Russia is among the leaders in iPhone sales 34


Many believe that the Russian market is not a priority for Apple – they say that our customers do not bring the corporation as much money as, for example, people from the United States or China. But if you believe the statements made by Tim Cook at a conference on the financial results of Apple for the past three months, the number of sold the iPhone in Russia is growing, with enviable speed.

According to the head of Apple, sales in Russia, India, Brazil and China grew by 55% in one quarter. Cook decided not to disclose the separate statistics for each country, saying only that the leaders among them were China and Russia . Top manager said that it was thanks to these countries iPhone is still “a horse” – smartphone sales are growing steadily every quarter.

Perhaps the role played by the discovery of Apple’s online store in the country, as well as the expansion of the network of authorized resellers . It should be noted that in his company’s statistics do not take into account the “gray” market, which is subjective to analysts’ estimates exceed the sale of certified devices for Russia.

Can we expect the pace to the opening of the Apple retail stores in Russia? Possible. While talking about it going for a few years, the full potential of the Russian market of Apple, seems to realize just now.

Of all quarterly results Apple is perhaps most disappointing sales only iPad, which fell by 18% compared to last year .
