RBC Capital Markets Managing Director Mike Abramsky reiterated RBC’s position today that sales of Apple products such as the iPad 2 helped Apple reach another impressive fiscal second quarter.
As summarized by BGR, Abramsky wrote that the overwhelming demand for the iPad 2, continuing sales of the iPhone 4 and the recently updated MacBook Air and MacBook Pro notebooks may have led to $24 billion in revenue for Q2.
Throughout the quarter, iPhone 4 units totaled 17 million units with MacBook Air and MacBook Pro notebooks, plus the rest of Apple’s Mac lineup, having a combined total of 3.6 million units.
RBC estimates that Apple shipped upwards of 7 million iPad units, including 2-3 million iPad 2 units. For the 2011 third quarter however, RBC estimates upwards of 8 million iPad units. For the full-year sales, RBC adjusted its forecast from 25 million to 31 million iPad units.
These Q2 2011 figures represent an overall 78% year-over-year growth for Apple from Q2 2010. Apple will report its fiscal second-quarter earnings later this month on April 20th.
