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.

So Apple has that much to spare in patent lawsuits to break up the competition so that next quarter, with no competition, it may make twice that amount. Nice ideology Stevie

It's about the principle of it. Apple should be making $14 billion in profit per quarter if it weren't for the copycats.

That's it. That's the peak. It's all downhill from here as Windows Phone 7 gets off the ground and Windows 8 dominates tablets.
God bless you brother

Definitely downhill, with 100 million iPhones to be sold next year and over 50 million iPads. They really dont need another "idea" for about a year or so...

It could, and I wish it will happen, for Windows 8 but as far as WP7 I do not think it will go anywhere.
BTW yes I bought a HTC HD7 the day it came out and extensively used it until I went back to my older HD2/WM 6.5.3; furthermore I had the opportunity to use for a while a HD7 with the latest Mango build and while it is much better in many aspects like the browser etc. etc. it is not the Holy Grail many people here are bragging about.

Is this 20.34 million iPhones in total of all 4 iPhones?

And isn't that number the total of what they have sold totally since the first iPhone came out?

According to other sources as well, that's in the last quarter.

haha, so funny to see all those comments.
First, it's not because we dislike iExpensive&Useless products, it's because people buy it.
And second, Sent from my iPoo

I'm not creative enough to come up with a real comment. U******

Damn impressive! Wow... seriously, I would have guessed they did good... But that?

Around 300.000 iPhones activated/day might sound less impressive than 500.000 Android-devices but remember: This is only the iPhone (alright, two iPhone models). That would be like... 300.000 Nexus S activated per day...

Now now, that is not nice. Let him watch his HDDVD's, BluRay is dead.

BOZ: Apple is on the way down

XVIII: people are stupid and iOShit is still junk. no one wants them/needs to buy them.

Boz: these figures are bogus and clearly, as the king hypocrite who buys all of their stuff year after year, they must be declining. Android owns 10000000% of the market. trust me.

But but but Neowin told me that everyone only buys Android, because iOS doesn't have flash or something.
Congrats Apple, now lets hope they spend that money wisely.

I have to agree with you... I just wish they would stop getting so many adults into toys and bring them back to real products - or at least promote research and development for humanity (like some other companies) instead of their brand.

*cough* http://research.microsoft.com and http://research.google.com

I'm sure they're actively researching an artificial liver for Steve Jobs.

I just wonder how long they can keep this up. Bravo on them, they have tons of cash in the bank but this type of growth is incredible!

Yep - we keep saying it each time results come out - they are doing amazingly well.

Need to come out with something else to keep growing, different ipad line, TV, something

Likely - but still, year on year it keeps getting better. Certainly be interested in a TV line myself.

With such low marketshare in everything except mp3 players, it seems like Apple has room to keep growing for at least 10 years. And that could just be with the product lines they currently have. Imagine if they do get into the TV market.

It is indeed amazing. I mean, why sue everyone then unless you're just hell-bent on full-on world domination?
Why don't you take your anger out on the law makers for making such stupid laws? Apple is using the powers that the IP law gives them. Next time there is an election, go VOTE for the person that does what you want.

That is amazing. As a MS fanboy, i'm both jealous and amazed.
As an MS fanboy, you should know that Microsoft sold more Windows 7 licences than the combined number of Macs, iPod, Apple TV, iPhone and iPads EVER sold!!

Government can't take that cash away. But they can make sure they don't abuse all that cash.
