A summary of Apple’s Q2 2014 Earnings Call

Apple went over its Q2 2014 earnings yesterday on its quarterly conference call with CEO Tim Cook and incoming CFO Luca Maestri. The company announced that former Burberry CEO Angela Ahrendts will finally be joining the executive team as SVP of Retail. Cook also addressed the recent debut of Microsoft’s Office productivity suite on the iPad, saying it should have released earlier.

But, as with any earnings call, the numbers that define Apple’s success or failure in the market took center stage. Here are some of the big ones you might have missed:

  • $150.6 billion – The size of the cash pile Apple is current sitting on
  • 98% – Customer satisfaction rating for the iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina Display
  • 95% – iPad’s current share of the U.S. education tablet market
  • 4x – The amount of web traffic generated by iPad users in comparison to Android devices. As in, all Android devices. Every single one combined.
  • 24 – The number of companies Apple has acquired in the past 18 months
  • 800 million – The number of iTunes accounts in use worldwide
  • 60% – The percentage of new iPhone 5c users who made the jump from Android
  • 62% – The percentage of users who switched from Android to the iPhone 4s ( from 2011 !!!).
  • 50% – The iPhone’s current market share in Japan
