Pandemic helped Apple

The COVID-19 pandemic that began early last year helped the brand. Apple said that business grew for the company as consumers purchased computers and tablets for work from home in the last few months. The iPad sales surged 77 percent during the January-March when compared to a year ago. Mac sales also increased 69 percent to $9.1 billion.

The company recently launched a new range of Macs powered by its own M1 silicon earlier this month. During the earnings call, CEO Cook and Maestri warned that the current chipset supply shortages will impact iPad and Mac lineups in Q3.

The company further revealed that sales of wearables, accessories and home also increased 24 percent to $7.8 billion, as consumers purchased the Apple Watch.
