Apple's Mac category brought in $9.1 billion in revenue, up from $5.4 billion in the year-ago quarter. As for iPads, Apple saw iPad revenue of $7.8 billion, up from $4.4 billion in the year-ago quarter. The ‌iPad‌ saw its highest March quarter revenue record in nearly a decade, and the last three quarters have marked the best Mac sales ever.

According to Apple CFO Luca Maestri, "more than half" of the sales of Macs and iPads during the quarter were from customers who were new to the devices and had not previously owned one.

The second fiscal quarter of 2021 covers sales of the new Mac and ‌iPad‌ devices, covering sales of the impressive new M1 Mac machines that include the 13-inch MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac mini.

‌iPad‌ and Mac sales could continue to grow even more in the coming quarter following the launch of the new ‌M1‌ iPad Pro and iMac models.

iPad Air 4 and M1 MacBooks are stellar products. They really knocked it out of the park with those.

I remember talk on this forum no so long ago about people wondering if Apple was abandoning the Mac line and going full force with iOS and iPadOS. Guess we got our answer.

It wasn't so long ago Cook was trying to kill off the Mac with all the "Who needs a computer?" nonsense, or whatever it was. I am glad someone saw some sense.

But I thought the Mac didn't have a touch screen?!?
It’s almost as though consumers don’t care about a feature they don’t need.
