Apple presenterade sin kvartalsrapport för det andra kvartalet av räkenskapsåret. Apple omsatte 52.9 miljoner dollar och gjorde en vinst på 11.03 miljarder dollar.

Apples siffror något lägre vad gäller försäljningen av iPhone men något högre när det gäller försäljningen av datorer – sett till vad marknaden och analytiker hade förväntat sig.

50.76 miljoner iPhone
8.9 miljoner iPad
4.2miljoner Mac

Looking ahead, we are excited to welcome attendees from around the world to our annual Worldwide Developers Conference next month in San Jose.”

“We generated strong operating cash flow of $12.5 billion and returned over $10 billion to our investors in the March quarter,” said Luca Maestri, Apple’s CFO. “Given the strength of our business and our confidence in our future, we are happy to announce another $50 billion increase to our capital return program today.”

As part of the latest update to the program, the Board has increased its share repurchase authorization to $210 billion from the $175 billion level announced a year ago. The Company also expects to continue to net-share-settle vesting restricted stock units.

The Board has approved a 10.5% increase to the Company’s quarterly dividend, and has declared a dividend of $0.63 per share of the Company’s common stock, payable on May 18, 2017 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on May 15, 2017.

From the inception of its capital return program in August 2012 through March 2017, Apple has returned over $211 billion to shareholders, including $151 billion in share repurchases.

The Company plans to continue to access the domestic and international debt markets to assist in funding the program. The management team and the Board will continue to review each element of the capital return program regularly and plan to provide an update on the program on an annual basis.

Apple (AAPL.O) and Facebook (FB.O) may expand their already outsized share of U.S. technology revenue when they report their earnings this week, as investors look for evidence to justify this year’s U.S. stock market rally.The two are the last of the top five U.S. tech companies by market value to release their quarterly results, following reports from Alphabet (GOOGL.O), Microsoft (MSFT.O) and Amazon.com (AMZN.O) last week. Those reports impressed analysts and fueled confidence in the sector, which has so far been the top performer on Wall Street in 2017.”If we look at the lion’s share of the numbers, they’re performing above expectations,” said Daniel Morgan, a portfolio manager at Synovus Trust, which owns shares of Apple worth about $41 million and shares of Facebook worth $68 million.”It gives validity to my position, which is that tech is, by far, the most exciting sector,” Morgan said.Shares of Facebook and Apple both hit record highs on Tuesday, up 0.53 percent and 0.75 percent respectively.

Android-telefoner har kortare livstid

Android-telefoner har kortare livstid

Android-telefoner har kortare livstid

Google kommer inte att uppdatera din Nexus-telefon efter tre år. Därefter kommer inga uppdateringar, inga buggfixar och inga säkerhetsuppdateringar. Apple däremot släpper fortfarande uppdateringar till iPhone 5 som lanserades 2012.

Det har länge sagts att om du vill kunna räkna med snabba uppdateringar och viktiga säkerhetsuppdateringar på Android-sidan så välj Googles egna telefoner och surfplattor.

Uppdateringar

Kom då ihåg att Google bara förbinder sig att tillhandahålla säkerhetsuppdateringar i tre år. Redan efter två år så upphör uppdateringarna av Android. Apple stöder fortfarande iPhone 5 och iPad 4 som lanserades 2012. Samma år lanserades Google Nexus 7 som fick sin sista uppdateringar 2014 och sin sista säkerhetsuppdatering året efter, 2015.

Två år

Det innebär att funktionsmässigt så har Googles egna enheter en livstid på bara två år. Efter den tiden så kan du inte längre räkna med att få några andra uppdateringar mer än säkerhetsuppdateringar i ytterligare ett år.
