Apple Q4 2012 financial results: 26.9 million iPhones, 14 million iPads, 5.3 million iPods, 4.9 million Macs,

Apple has posted their Q4 2012 financial results, which includes revenue of $36 billion and profit of 8.2 billion. In terms of devices sold, they reported 26.9 million iPhones, 14 million iPods, 5.3 million iPods, and 4.9 million Macs.

“We’re very proud to end a fantastic fiscal year with record September quarter results,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We’re entering this holiday season with the best iPhone, iPad, Mac and iPod products ever, and we remain very confident in our new product pipeline.”“We’re pleased to have generated over $41 billion in net income and over $50 billion in operating cash flow in fiscal 2012,” said Peter Oppenheimer, Apple’s CFO. “Looking ahead to the first fiscal quarter of 2013, we expect revenue of about $52 billion and diluted earnings per share of about $11.75.”

It was, of course, a record for everything but iPods, which should help explain why they introduced the iPad mini a couple of days ago.

  • Think there is a typo in the article... Shouldn't one of those numbers say iPad?
  • Yes... and one that they are not in a hurry to rectify. Very sloppy work, I don't think they can afford a proof reader ;-)
  • Apples making that good money, hopefully they invest n some research and development for my iPhone so I can shit on android users with new features
  • Is that 14 Million iPads ??
  • Apple is just a cash cow machine! It amazes me that 70% of their revenues come from iPads and iPhones. These two products only came to existence within the last 5 years. It boggles the mind. www.beyondcareersuccess.com
