Apple Sold 17 Million iPads During Q3 2012
Throw in 26 million iPhones, and things look rosy for the Cupertino giant.
Apple did its best to make other companies seem unproductive by releasing the financial results for its fiscal 2012 third quarter, which came to an end June 30, 2012. What did it say? Oh, nothing. Just that Apple managed to sell 17 million iPads during this period, an 84 percent increase over the year-ago quarter. It also moved 26 million iPhones, amounting to 28 percent unit growth. Quarterly revenue? Try $35 billion, for a net profit of $8.8 billion.
Did Apple falter? Sort of. Turns out, the iPod only managed 6.8 million units, a 10 percent decline a year ago during this period. No big surprise, since it appears most iPhone users listen to music via their smartphones.
"We're thrilled with record sales of 17 million iPads in the June quarter," said Tim Cook, Apple's CEO. "We've also just updated the entire MacBook line, will release Mountain Lion tomorrow and will be launching iOS 6 this Fall. We are also really looking forward to the amazing new products we've got in the pipeline."
