Yesterday, Analyst Philip Elmer-Dewitt predicted that this would be Apple’s first $40 billion quarter. The answer comes yes as soon as Apple made the announcement.
Here’s how the breaks down is:
Revenue: $46.3 Billion ($28.3 Billion last quarter), with a record quarterly profit of $13.06 billion. Earnings per share was $13.87 (vs $10.08 consensus estimate)
iPhones sold: 37.04 million (17.07 million last quarter)
iPads sold: 15.43 million (11.1 million last quarter)
Macs sold: 5.2 million (4.89 million last quarter)
iPods sold: 15.4 million (up from 6.62 million last quarter, but down 21% year over year)
“We’re thrilled with our outstanding results and record-breaking sales of iPhones, iPads and Macs,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “Apple’s momentum is incredibly strong, and we have some amazing new products in the pipeline.”
This also moves Apple back into the number one position, ahead of Samsung which sold a stunning 35 million units this last quarter.
