Apple sells 20.34 million iPhones and 9.25 million iPads last quarter

Apple has revealed its latest financial numbers for the quarter that ended on June 30. As usual, Apple blew away previous expectations as it announced via a press release it brought in $28.57 billion in revenue, well ahead of analysts' expectations of $25 billion. Net income came in at $7.31 billion for the quarter, well ahead of Apple's profit of $3.25 billion for the same period a year ago.

The company also announced sales figures for its various products. That included a whopping 20.34 million iPhones, which is a massive 142 percent increase from the same period a year ago. The iPad tablet continues to gain traction as it sold 9.25 million units of the device in the quarter, a huge 183 percent increase from the same period a year ago. Apple sold a total of 3.95 million units of its various Mac devices during the quarter, a 14 percent increase from the same period a year ago. The only decline, as expected, came from the iPod division. While Apple sold 7.54 million iPods during the quarter, that number is a 20 percent decrease from the same period a year ago.

The press release quotes Apple founder and CEO as saying, "Right now, we’re very focused and excited about bringing iOS 5 and iCloud to our users this fall.” The press release gave no information in today's press release on when the next version of the iPhone or its next iPod refresh will be released, although it's possible the company could talk about those plans during its conference call with analysts which should happen later today.
