Apple posts record sales last quarterIf you’re curious about how Apple has been doing since the loss of Steve Jobs, it looks like the company has nothing to worry about. Yesterday, Apple announced its financial results for its fiscal 2012 first quarter which ended December 31st 2011. According to the report, the company posted record quarterly revenue of $46.33 billion and record quarterly net profit of $13.06 billion. Compared to its revenue of $26.74 billion and quarterly net profit of $6 billion one year ago, that’s one massive increment.

Apple reportedly sold 37.04 million iPhones in the quarter alone – a 128% unit growth over the year-ago quarter, while it sold 15.43 million iPads in the same period, a 111% increase over the year-ago quarter as well. Apple also sold 5.2 million Macs (26% unit increase over the year-ago quarter) and 15.4 million iPods (21% decline from the year-ago quarter).

It looks like people are starting to replace their dedicated music devices with the iPhone and iPad instead, which makes sense, since people aren’t fans of carrying too many devices around at the same time. With Tim Cook replacing Steve Jobs as CEO of the company, it’ll be interesting to see how he carries the company in 2012 and beyond.
