Mark your calendars. Apple is set to announce its Q1 2016 earnings January 26.
Apple confirmed today via its Investor Relations portal that it will be releasing financial results for the first fiscal quarter of 2016 (re: September through December 2015) at 2 p.m. Pacific on January 26.
Q1 is always an important quarter for Apple, since it nearly always reflects the release of new iPhone models, which are the bulk of Apple’s business. But it also gives us an important overview about how the Mac and iPad are doing.
As for the Apple Watch? Apple refrained from announcing sales of the Apple Watch for its first two quarters, perhaps because it underperformed, but analysts expect that the wearable may have had an exceedingly good Christmas. If so, it’s possible this will be the first quarter we’ll hear concrete numbers on how the Apple Watch is doing.
As always, Cult of Mac will live-blog Apple’s earnings call. Check back with us January 26 for more.
