Apple will report Q2 2009 earnings following the close of the US stock market on April 22, 2009.  A earnings conference call will also be conducted at 2pm PDT/5pm EDT.   The results will highlight earnings, Mac shipments, iPod shipments, and iPhone shipments for the first three months of calendar 2009.
Key Apple product refreshes and updates during the quarter
The earnings report will factor in several product updates and refreshes that occurred during the quarter including:
  • iLife '09 and iWork '09 Mac software suites
  • a complete refresh of the Mac desktop lineup -  the iMac, Mac mini, and Mac Pro
  • incremental processor speed bumps on the 15-inch MacBook Pro
  • SSD (solid state drive) options on the 15-inch MacBook Pro and 13-inch unibody MacBook
  • Time Capsule and AirPort Extreme refresh
  • the new iPod shuffle
Mac desktop shipments - is the decline over?
The earnings release will provide insight into Mac desktop shipments that have experienced declines over the past two fiscal quarters and three out of the past four quarters.  Although desktop refreshes were released in the final month of the quarter, Mac shipment data will provide insight into purchasers willingness to buy Apple desktops after an extended refresh interval.
