Apple’s (NASDAQ: AAPL) revenue growth over the last 2 years has been driven primarily by its services and other products division, which includes sales of the Apple Watch and Airpods, while its flagship iPhone business has remained almost flat due to a mixed performance of devices such as the iPhone XS and XR. However, things look set to change in FY’20, driven by strong demand for the lower-priced iPhone 11 and the meaningfully upgraded 11 Pro devices and the potential launch of a range of 5G handsets later this year. In this analysis, we take a closer look at the revenues of Apple’s key segments over the last few years and what the outlook could be like and also compare the company’s revenues with rivals.
