Not integration, but business unit categorization. None of those products have high enough sales dollars to report them individually, so they are "other" -- all that is not iPhone, iPad or Mac.

True, the phone is subsidized and the iPad is not. But even if I were paying full retail, I'm more inclined to upgrade the phone more frequently than the tablet, and I suspect the same is true for most consumers who own both.

I wonder what they are. How Apple can "integrate" Beats headsets, Apple TV, Apple Watch and the rest of the products?

On one hands, the iPad's lifecycle is seemingly longer than iPhone's. On the other hands, the iPhone6Plus is getting close to a iPad mini in terms of size. I think the iPhone6/6Plus do affect the sales of iPad.

That's probably because your phone is subsidized.  Are you forking out $650 or more for a new iPhone?  Probably not.  But most people pay full price for the iPad.

If the no subsidy model (currentlly championed in the US by T-Mo and MVNO's such as Ting) takes off, expect iPhone sales to tank, along with other high end phones (such as Galaxy S5, etc).

Tim mentioned that iPads tend to be held longer than iPhones before upgrading. I'm curious what those numbers are, but intuitively it makes sense. My 4 year old iPad2 still meets my needs for a tablet, even while I contemplate dumping my iPhone 5s early so I can upgrade to a 6.

I am just so tempted to buy iPhone 6. May be to buy from US and use in India....or just settle with iPhone 5S. Thats seems a good option.

IPad a speed bump?

Cook indicated the iPad slump was due in part to people waiting for the new models just released. Are we buying that or is the tablet market getting saturated?

Doherty also said Apple's success signals success for the rest of the electronics industry - any thoughts?
