Well folks, Apple has just put up some mixed numbers in its fiscal Q4 2013 earnings release - $37.5 billion in revenue and $7.5 billion in net profit to be exact - but how exactly did the tech titan fare in terms of hardware sales?
This time around Apple sold 33.8 million iPhones (which it notes is a record for Q4), 14.1 million iPads and 4.6 million Macs during the quarter.
To put that in perspec
Apple just released its earnings report for Q1 2013, ending in December of last year, with a solid hardware quarter overall. The iPhone dominated with 47.8 million units sold in the quarter, up quarterly and yearly, with Apple also breaking records with 22.9 million iPads sold.
The iPhone 5 saw its first full quarter of availability this period, as well as a nice holiday sales boost.
Last March at WWDC, Apple announced that it had sold over 365 million iOS devices globally since March 2012. But perhaps more important, Apple has just announced that its number 1 in US notebook sales.
Mountain Lion, the newest version of OS X, has also been installed on 7 million devices.
Apple broke records again opening weekend, with the iPhone 5 selling more than 5M in its first three days, compared to 4M for the iPhone 4S.
The iPhone-maker also announced that demand for the iPhone 5 far exceeded the initial supply, which is likely the only reason why opening weekend sales didn’t cross into the 6- to 10 million range some were predicting.
Apple (AAPL) said it sold some 9 million new iPhones in the three days since the launch of its new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c Sept. 20, blowing away the previous record of 5 million sold for the iPhone 5 at that model's kickoff weekend last year.
Apple announced on its earnings call today that the company sold more than 2 million Apple TV devices in its fiscal first quarter. That’s up from 1.3 million sequentially, and up from 1.4 million during the previous holiday period.
