Apple Results: 14 Million iPhones, 4.2 Million iPads, $20bn Revenue

Apple just released its quarterly results. It's the company's first $20 billion quarter. Without hyperbole or shouting, here are the highlights and the numbers:

  • Revenue: $20.34 billion; net quarterly profit of $4.31 billion
  • Macs (vs. year ago): 3.89 million (up 27%)
  • iPhones: 14.1 million (up 91%)
  • iPods: 9.05 million (down 11%)
  • iPads: 4.19 million (below consensus, but contributed about $2.7 billion in revenue)

There are now more than 125 million iOS devices in the market according to the company's earnings call. In something of an unfortunate move, there was a poke in the eye for RIM in Apple CEO Steve Jobs' press release quote:

“We are blown away to report over $20 billion in revenue and over $4 billion in after-tax earnings—both all-time records for Apple,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “iPhone sales of 14.1 million were up 91 percent year-over-year, handily beating the 12.1 million phones RIM sold in their most recent quarter. We still have a few surprises left for the remainder of this calendar year.” 

(Emphasis added.)

The company offered semi-aggressive guidance for the holiday shopping season: "we expect revenue of about $23 billion." Read all about it on Techmeme
