Predictions of Apple 2014 Q4 Earnings Report From Medical Charge Capture Users

Just last week we saw the announcement of new iPads and a brand new Retina 5K iMac. Today, we’ll get a look into the fourth quarter earnings of Apple, the company behind these products. The announcement is in a few short hours, and I know that the anticipation is killing us all.

As a mobile charge capture company, we have to stay informed on the latest smartphone developments and their manufacturers. Our very own Signor Goat has been reporting on pMD’s mobile market share every Friday, and it’s our quarterly opportunity to see how Apple, our biggest slice of the pie, is doing. Let's take a look at pMD's mobile device breakdown between Apple’s last earnings call in July and today. Perhaps we may have a correlation between Apple’s numbers and pMD’s.

On Sept. 19, Apple launched the iPhone 6 to crowds around the world. In its first weekend alone, Apple set a new record by selling over 10 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models.

Last week’s announcement involving new iMacs, iPads, and iPad Minis is also pretty remarkable. The iPads received upgraded hardware and new Touch ID sensors, while the iMac received a Retina 5K display, which is unheard of in a consumer PC.

Now to the numbers from today:


Looking at the charts, you may notice that you’re seeing double; iOS remains at 90.8 percent, leaving the numbers exactly the same. If you follow our weekly device breakdown, then you’re aware of the turbulent times Apple has experienced since our last visit in order to climb back to where it is today. Apple has still not reached the height of 91.9 percent, which we last saw at the end of Apple’s second quarter on April 23. Regardless, Apple has been on a hot streak this last month and things are looking up for Apple. Back in April, in anticipation for the iPhone 6, pMD’s own iOS market share began to drop, but low and behold, the numbers are picking up again. Will our numbers correlate with Apple? We’ll find out at 2 p.m. PDT!
