Forget the iPhone, Apple’s next big revenue boost may come from its range of services

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Apple Revenue

For quite some time now, the iPhone has faithfully remained Apple’s primary revenue driver. Most recently, iPhone-based revenue accounted for a whopping 70% of Apple’s earnings during the 2017 holiday quarter. The iPhone’s popularity notwithstanding, a number of analysts over the past few years have promulgated the narrative that we’re either at or about to reach peak iPhone, which is to say that Apple is fast approaching a time where iPhone growth will begin experiencing a marked decline.

In light of that, many analysts have wondered aloud if Apple has the ability to come up with new revenue streams to keep earnings trending upwards. To this point, a new research note from Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty (via Business Insider) relays that revenue from Apple’s services division may significantly boost Apple’s earnings potential. Hardly a controversial sentiment, revenue from Apple’s range of services (which includes iTunes, the App Store, Apple Music, and more) has been growing by leaps and bounds in recent years.

Huberty’s note reads in part:

Over the last five years, the vast majority (86%) of Apple’s 8% annual revenue growth was driven by iPhone sales, [but] it is through monetization of Apple’s Services business that we see the company still generating mid single digit revenue growth.

Indeed, Apple has already seen revenue from its range of services grow drastically in recent years. Just this past quarter, for example, Apple’s services division raked in $ 8.4 billion in revenue. By way of contrast, Apple during the same quarter three years ago saw revenue from its array of services check in at $ 4.7 billion.

Huberty further writes that Apple enjoys an average of about $ 30 in services-related revenue per device, representing an increase of $ 5 per device compared to two years ago.

BI adds:

Also, Huberty believes not only could the $ 30 number actually be $ 60, but it “could approach $ 100 or more.” That is because, according to the note, Amazon Prime has about 106 million users who pay about $ 99 per year, and Netflix has roughly 111 million subscribers who pay about $ 120 per year.

Plus, only about 18% of Apple’s total device installed base are paid subscribers, “leaving much room for improved recurring revenue,” the note said.

Notably, Apple Music alone appears to be a growing source of revenue for the company, with recent reports indicating that Apple’s streaming music service may boast more paying subscribers than Spotify as early as this summer. Just two weeks ago, Apple disclosed that Apple Music now has 38 million subscribers, representing a 5% increase in just about one month. Meanwhile, revenue from the App Store continues to impress, with Apple in 2017 earning about $ 88 billion in revenue from the App Store.

If You’re in San Francisco for GDC, Come to Our Party Tonight!

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

We’ve been absolutely overwhelmed with GDC this week (as you can probably tell by the flood of content we’ve posted so far) but per TouchArcade tradition we’re having our own party tonight at 7:00 PM in the lobby of the Marriott Marquis in downtown San Francisco. We’re taking over the B55 Craft House which has been refreshed since last year and now has a dumb amount of beer on tap. Another neat thing about our party this year is that we’re sponsored by Jam City so we have a limited number of free drink tickets to give out at the event… So come early. I’ve got no idea what turn out is going to be like, but, the fewer people the better as that means more drink tickets for everyone! (But, hey, if it’s huge, that’s cool too.)

Everyone is invited, if you’re attending GDC or are just a fan of TouchArcade. If you love mobile games, our party is the best place to go at GDC to rub elbows with all sorts of mobile industry giants, developers of mobile classics, and more. Seriously, it’s a super fun time.

Come on down!

Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact pre-orders from Sony’s store come with free goodies

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

We wrote about the open pre-orders of the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact in Europe last week, but those were third-party retailers’ offers. Sony’s launched its own pre-orders, with freebies and… you got the hint. A couple of Xperia XZ2s with assorted cases The pre-order offers aren’t available in all countries where Sony has a presence, and even where they are, they vary by country. For example, Poland, Portugal, Spain, and the UK are getting the Wireless Charging Dock & Style Cover Touch with XZ2 pre-orders. In the UK, if you go for the Compact, it’ll be just the Style Cover Touch…

LG’s non-G7 to come with an LCD instead of an OLED display as a cost-cutting measure

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

LG will reportedly opt for an LCD panel for the upcoming G6 successor, Korean market analysts predict. It will be a measure aimed at keeping costs in check as OLED displays, their advantages aside, can be two to three times as expensive as comparable LCDs. P-OLED LG V30 (left) next to LCD LG G6 That said, LG’s G-series smartphones have traditionally been equipped with LCDs anyway, so it’s hardly a surprise that the G7 (which in all likelihood will not be called that) won’t use an OLED either. Speculations were fuelled by the adoption of OLED for the V30, and the notched renders of…

Oppo is refreshing the F-series with the F7, which will come in two models – F7 (with a more premium 128GB version) and the F7 Youth, which should have some deductions from the main F7 here and there and a lower price. Judging by the leaked poster below both models will share a 25MP selfie camera with AI features. We’re expecting the Oppo F7 to look similar to the Oppo R15 with a 19:9 notched screen that stretches all the way to the top. Source
