It’s All Just Semantics

IDC: Tablet shipments decline for the first time in Q4 2014, leaders Apple and Samsung both lose market share

When I see this headline in light of Apple’s blockbuster first quarter—where they sold 74.5 million iPhones—I realize this is all just semantics.

Apple doesn’t breakout their 74.5 million sales by model, but we know the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus have been huge sellers (particularly in China) and as far as I’m concerned, the iPhone 6 Plus is a mini tablet.

So another way and looking at the numbers is: Apple sold more small tablets than they sold big tablets in Q4 2014.
