Apple outperformed their initial forecast in the second quarter posting profits of $1.05 billion, or $1.16 per share. Selling, 1.7 million iPhones, 2.2 million Macs, and 10.6 million iPods, total revenue was reported at $7.51 billion. Amidst all the financial (read: dry) news, Apple did drop some interesting tidbits via conference call with financial analysts and members of the media (via AppleInsider):
Overall, it seemed to be a pretty good financial quarter for Apple. The iPod is still selling strong and its 'halo effect' on the Mac is still shining. As Apple releases an update to the iPhone, it'll be easy to reach their lofty goal of selling 10 million iPhones by the end of 2008.
