The third fiscal quarter has just wrapped up for Apple, and it appears the Cupertino corporation may have beaten expectations. Apple posted this afternoon third quarter revenue of $35.3 billion and a net profit of $6.9 billion, compared to revenue of $35 billion and net profit of $8.8 billion in Q3 of last year.
Apple CEO Tim Cook:
“We are especially proud of our record June quarter iPhone sales of over 31 million and the strong growth in revenue from iTunes, Software and Services. We are really excited about the upcoming releases of iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks, and we are laser-focused and working hard on some amazing new products that we will introduce in the fall and across 2014.”
In short, Apple sold a record 31.1 million iPhones in comparison to 26 million at this time last year, sold 14.6 million iPads, down 17 million from this time last year, and sold 3.8 million Macs, 200,000 less than last year.
