Apple’s First Quarter 2012 Results are In, Record Sales All Around

Apple has posted their quarter-one 2012 sales figures, which are unsurprisingly┬áthe “highest quarterly revenue and earnings ever”. The fiscal quarter lasted 14 weeks, from the 24th of September to the end of 2011, and in that time Apple managed to pull a revenue of $46.33 billion and record net profit of $13.06 billion. During the quarter, Apple sold 37.04 million iPhones, 15.43 million iPads, 5.2 million Macs, and 15.4 million iPods.

Apple’s profit more than doubled over the first quarter of 2010, and with the anticipated release of the iPhone 5 and iPad 3, next year’s forecast is looking just as sunny.
