Predictions of Apple 2015 Q2 Earnings Report from Medical Charge Capture Users
Apple will report their Q2 FY15 Earnings on Tuesday, April 27th, so it’s time for us to ever-so-loosely hypothesize how Apple market share has fared based on the technology trends among our niche of physician Apple users.

Q1 was a record breaking quarter for Apple, who posted the biggest profit in corporate history largely due to the success of iPhone sales. Last quarter we saw a mild increase from Android physician users despite Apple’s phenomenal iPhone growth. This quarter, Android users again showed slightly more net growth than Apple, climbing up 0.12 percent.


Apple’s earnings from Q2 should indicate just how successful the iPhone 6/6 Plus phones have been performing, as well as the adoption of the new MacBook that was released this quarter. Let’s take a look at what’s been happening with the iPhone growth by model among our users this past quarter.


Users are finally turning in their iPhone 4 and 5 devices and investing in newer models, which is great for Apple. Given the substantial increase in iPhone 6/6 Plus devices over the past quarter, both from upgrades as well as new users, we’re anticipating that Apple will post sound Q2 earnings with a resulting uptick in stock value. We’ll call it more of a hunch. Apple just released pre-orders for their Apple Watch with orders nearly topping 1 million, so we’re likely to see the impact of this innovative new gadget in Q3 earnings. Until next quarter!
