Apple's iPad sales challenges

Apple's iPad sales are being challenged by both the new iPhone 6 Plus and the company's computers, CEO Tim Cook said on the tech giant's quarterly earnings conference call.

"Have we had cannibalization? The answer is yes," Cook said on the call Monday, according to a transcript from TheStreet.com. "We're clearly seeing cannibalization from iPhone and on the other side from the Mac. And of course, as I've said before, we've never worried about that."
