Apple continues to sell a lot of iPhones and iPads, even during the relatively slow spring and summer months. Today, the company reported that for the April-June quarter of 2012, it sold 26 million iPhones and 17 million iPads worldwide.
The companys press release also said that it has revenues of $35.0 billion and a net profit of $8.8 billion for the quarter, compared to revenues of $28.6 billion and a net profit of $7.3 billion for the same time period a year ago. However, these results were below the expectations of financial analysts and caused Apples stock price to go down in after-hours trading.
Apple also revealed that it sold four million Mac PCs in the second quarter, up two percent compared to a year ago. It also sold 6.8 million iPods, which is down 10 percent compared to a year ago. It did not reveal information on sales of its Apple TV set top box.
Apple is expected to launch the next version of its Mac OS X operating system, Mountain Lion, sometime tomorrow morning, with a $19.95 update price tag. It is also highly expected to launch the next version of the iPhone later this summer. Some people are also predicting that Apple could launch a smaller version of the iPad before the end of the year.
