Cupertino based tech giant Apple Inc. has today announced its first quarter fiscal 2013 earnings with a quarterly revenue of $54.5 billion and record quarterly net profit of $13.1 billion which is a record. Apple also sold a record 47.8 million iPhones in the quarter which is up from the 37 million iPhones that the company sold in the same quarter a year ago.
Another record which Apple has seen is the record sales of the Apple iPad and the company managed to sell 22.9 million iPad in the quarter compared to 15.4 million in the year-ago quarter which also goes on to include the newly launched iPad Mini but we do not have any definite numbers on that.
Apple sold 12.7 million iPods in the quarter, compared to 15.4 million in the year-ago quarter which is a low point but the average weekly revenue was $4.2 billion in the quarter when compared to $3.3 billion in the year-ago quarter. Apple’s guidance for next quarter is revenue between $41 billion and $43 billion.
“We’re thrilled with record revenue of over $54 billion and sales of over 75 million iOS devices in a single quarter,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We’re very confident in our product pipeline as we continue to focus on innovation and making the best products in the world.”
