Despite some of the previous reports that Apple would slip this quarter, it still managed to sells a ton of iPhones and iPads. That was the news that came in today as part of the company's fourth quarter 2012 financial results. Apple announced that it sold 47.8 million iPhones during the quarter, which is up from 37.04 million iPhones it said it sold for the same period a year ago.

Apple's press release added that the company sold 22.9 million iPads in the quarter, compared to 15.4 million iPads for the fourth quarter of 2011. There's no word yet on how many of those iPad sales were of the iPad mini, which launched in the fourth quarter.

However, it wasn't all good news. Apple said it sold 4.1 million Mac PCs in the quarter, which is down from 5.2 million Macs sold a year ago. 12.7 million iPods were sold in the last three months of 2012, compared to 13.4 million iPods a year ago; Apple added that it sold a total of 75 million iOS devices in the fourth quarter.
