Apple sold 20.34 Million iPhones and 9.25Million iPads in Q3 0211

Apple announced yesterday after the market closed their highly anticipated Q3 2011 earnings numbers. As expected Apple beat the street's estimates and set several records. Apple posted record quarterly revenue of $28.57 billion and record quarterly net profit of $7.31 billion, or $7.79 per diluted share. These results compare to revenue of $15.70 billion and net quarterly profit of $3.25 billion, or $3.51 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin was 41.7% compared to 39.1% in the year-ago quarter. International sales accounted for 62% of the quarter’s revenue.

Apple sold 20.34 million iPhones in the quarter, representing 142% unit growth over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 9.25 million iPads during the quarter, a 183% unit increase over the year-ago quarter. The Company sold 3.95 million Macs during the quarter, a 14% unit increase over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 7.54 million iPods, a 20% unit decline from the year-ago quarter.

“We’re thrilled to deliver our best quarter ever, with revenue up 82% and profits up 125%,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Right now, we’re very focused and excited about bringing iOS 5 and iCloud to our users this fall.”

Besides the record sales of the iPad and iPhone, the steep 20% decline of iPod sales is standing out. The amount is still pretty high, but with the dramatic rise of smartphone adoption dedicated portable music players are just not as desired any more.

Now of course everybody can get excited about Apple's holiday quarter when iOS 5 and iCloud are out. The next quarter will mostly have to live on Mac sales pushed by the release of OS X Lion. OS X Lion is expected to be released today.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
