Apple quarterly figures: 35 million iPhones in 3 months

It's getting almost boring: Apple is reporting record numbers again, this time based on sales of iPhones, iPads and Macs in a so-called “March quarter”, the second quarter of the Apple financial year ending on March 31st. Apple boss Tim Cook said:

We’re thrilled with sales of over 35 million iPhones and almost 12 million iPads in the March quarter. The new iPad is off to a great start, and across the year you're going to see a lot more of the kind of innovation that only Apple can deliver.

A whopping 35 million iPhones and almost 12 million iPads have been sold in the past three months. This corresponds to an increase of 88 percent for iPhones and even 151 percent for iPads sold. There was also an increase in the Macs, here the 4 million computers sold mean an increase of 4 percent compared to the corresponding quarter of the previous year. The drop in sales figures, which has been ongoing for some time, is only continuing with the iPods, with 7.7 million units being sold, around 15 percent fewer devices.

All in all, Apple is very satisfied with the past quarter and speaks of a 94 percent increase in profits compared to the same quarter of the previous year.
