Apple’s Fourth Quarter Results

Apple PR:

The Company sold 26.9 million iPhones in the quarter, representing 58 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 14.0 million iPads during the quarter, a 26 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. The Company sold 4.9 million Macs during the quarter, a 1 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 5.3 million iPods, a 19 percent unit decline from the year-ago quarter.

Increased sales of every product except, predictably, iPods. Remember: only eight days of iPhone 5 sales were counted in this quarter, yet they still sold 58% more than the previous year’s Q4. As Nilay Patel noted, “it’s a weird world where Apple can post record quarters but still miss analyst expectations.”
