It’s that time of year again, another chance for Apple to show off how well it has been doing in Q3 2013, revealing a massive $35.3 billion in revenue earned, and a total of $6.9 billion in net profit, up from the $35 billion but down from the $8.8 billion that was announced a year ago.
In terms of specifics, in the last quarter they sold 31.2 million iPhones, compared to the previous years 14.6 million, but have seen a decline in sales of the iPad for the first time, with 14.6 million sold in total, compared to the years previous 17 million.
They also only sold 3.8 million Macs compared to the 4 million sold a year ago, however Apple are still optimistic, with Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, stating the following.
“We are especially proud of our record June quarter iPhone sales of over 31 million and the strong growth in revenue from iTunes, Software and Services.”
“We are really excited about the upcoming releases of iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks, and we are laser-focused and working hard on some amazing new products that we will introduce in the fall and across 2014.”
The last part is particularly interesting, and shows that Apple may still have a bit of innovating left to do.
