Tomahawk, WI 01/29/2014 (BasicsMedia) – Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) continues to post remarkable iPhone sales. The belief in this industry is that all cellphone sales, no matter how high they reach, must come crushing down at some point. However, Apple Inc continues to show that it is not ready to adhere to this rule. During the same period in 2013, Apple’s iPhone sales were 47.8 million. A year later, the company announced that it sold more than 51 million iPhones, which is the highest ever. Despite this achievement, it is strange that analysts continue showing apprehension towards Apple.

A close look at the figures that Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) posted regarding its iPhone sales indicates that the company did not perform to the required levels in its North American operations. The reason for this is that Apple Inc was unable to keep up with consumer demand for iPhones in this region. What Apple lost in North America, it more than compensated for in its operations in China, Russia, and Latin America, where iPhone sales skyrocketed across all these international regions. AAPL’s CEO, Tim D. Cook, says they will continue focusing on emerging markets.

It is worth noting that iPhone has only been in the market for around 7 years, and during this time, it has dislodged some of the older and well-known brands such as Blackberry, HTC, Ericsson, Motorola, and Nokia. Currently, its biggest challenger in this field is Samsung, which is not enjoying such a great time. Samsung has seen a drop in its quarterly sales, while those of AAPL seem to be doing much better than they have done at any other point to date. Apparently, Apple’s decisions towards the end of 2013 helped it record these impressive iPhone sales.

Towards the end of 2013, Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) opted to introduce two new iPhones into the market. It also opted to bring two new iPads. Furthermore, the company chose to add NTT DoCoMo, which is Japan’s largest mobile phone carrier. All these decisions have produced amazing results for AAPL, although there is strong belief within the market that it may be unable to post similar financial results in 2014. Remember that the company announced it sold more than 26 million iPads during this quarter, which is a huge increase from a similar period last year of 22.9 million.

Generally, Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) had a great financial quarter, what with selling more than 4.8 million of its Mac Computers, compared to 4.1 million of the same that it sold last year. The only negative news was the company’s flat net profit of $13.1 billion, which remains the envy of many of its peers in this industry. AAPL saw an increase in its revenue from the same period last year of around 6%, which comes to $57.6 billion. In all intents, Apple Inc seems to be on a good path towards more success, thus making it hard to understand why the industry is apprehensive.

Despite the impressive figures Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) posted, it seems the company was unable to fully convince its investors. Since iPhones appear to be geared towards the wealthy middle class and rich clients, there is a worry that they already have what they need. Therefore, what does this mean for a company of Apple’s stature? Does it continue producing iPhone gadgets even when its targeted clients already have what they need?
