Apple’s best quarter ever: $54.5b revenue, $13.1b profit

Despite word of a decrease in consumers’ interest in Apple products, Apple, during their quarterly conference call yesterday afternoon, announced their best quarter ever. $13.1 billion of profit on $54.5 billion of revenue was earned, which is said to be more than HP, Samsung, Google, HTC, Microsoft, and Dell combined. Apple also noted that they sold 47.8 million iPhones and 22.9 million iPads, both up from their figures one year ago. On the flip-side, Mac units sold were at 4.1 million with iPods at 12.7 million, both down from last year. Apple made note several times that both Mac sales and overall profits/revenues would’ve been much greater if it weren’t for Mac supply shortages and manufacturing slowdowns.
