Apple's Interesting 3rd Quarter
Apple recently released the report on its third fiscal quarter, telling of their most recent trends, profits, and deficits. The results were surprisingly positive, according to the mammoth company's predictions. What's your opinion on their recent growth? Do you absolutely oppose iPhone 4? Let us know, and read on for the Q3 details...
- Apple's net quarterly revenue was $15.7 billion, surpassing last year by $5.97 billion.
- Fifty-two percent of all sales came from international purchases, indicating a reduced dependence on the United States alone.
- The iPad, although only recently introduced, sold almost as many units as the Mac computer. There were 3.27 million iPads sold, compared to 3.47 million Macs.
- Mac sales have increased to approximately ⅓ of the size reported last year.
- iPod sales have dropped by eight percent from the last year, despite still being the unit in highest demand.
- The recent iPhone 4 has proved cumbersome with its antenna issue (users are being compensated for their troubles with free cases, fixing the strange bug). However, sales were reported at 8.4 million iPhone 4 units.
Generally, Apple representatives appear extremely pleased at the results. However, are you surprised by the details? What do you think about the iPad and iPhone 4? Do you absolutely love Apple's current direction? Do you feel the need to beg them to accept emulation apps in the App Store?
Feel free to voice your opinion!
