Apple has today revealed its Q2 2014 financial results, reporting earnings in total of $10.2 billion, or $11.62 per share, on top of $45.6 billion in revenue for its second quarter, which ended in March.
This shows a huge rise in Apple’s sales, considering that they only forecast $42 – $44 billion in revenue in Q2 2013, at which point they made $43.6 billion in revenue, an increase of $2 billion from the previous year.
“We’re very proud of our quarterly results, especially our strong iPhone sales and record revenue from services,” said Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, in a statement. “We’re eagerly looking forward to introducing more new products and services that only Apple could bring to market.”
These sales break up into a number of numbers, with 43.7 million iPhones sold, 16.3 million iPads sold and 4.1 million Macs, an increase of last years predictions, which said that they would sell around 38 million iPhones, 19.3 million iPads and 4 million Macs.
In Q2 2013 Apple sold 37.5 million iPhones, 19.5 million iPads and nearly 4 million Macs.
Apple say that for the next quarter (which ends in June) they expect to make $36 – $38 billion in revenue, which may mean that they won’t be releasing anything special during Q3 2014, which may mean a lack of the “one last thing” at WWDC.
