Apple iPad sales - additional information

The iPad was unveiled in January 2010 by then-CEO Steve Jobs and became available to the public three months later. Since 2010, Apple has released six versions of the iPad to the consumer market. In contrast to earlier tablet PCs, the iPad was marketed as a consumer device that would fill the gap between smartphones and laptop computers. The iPad is closely related to Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch, as it uses the same operating system and multi-touch user interface.

About 300 million iPads have been sold since 2010. Following the release of the iPad Air model in November 2013, iPad sales peaked at over 26 million units over the last months of 2013, over triple the amount of sales than at the end of 2012. These record figures on iPad sales generated revenue of over 11 billion U.S. dollars for Apple in the first quarter of 2014, the highest amount for a quarter ever. The iPad sales are an important source of revenue for Apple; in the first quarter of Apple's 2013 fiscal year, for instance, iPad revenue accounted for around 20 percent of the company's total revenue.

The iPad was the leader of the tablet market as Apple’s iPad accounted for almost 60 percent of total global tablet shipments at the beginning of 2012. The company has seen its share decrease over the years due to increasing competition from Samsung and Lenovo. Despite the decline, Apple still remains a market leader, considering both main competitors still have less than 20 percent of the share each.
