Apple has finally announced its financial results for Q2, 2013. There has been a lot of speculation lately on Apple’s results, on how much profit will it post and how many units it has been able to move. The company generated a revenue of $43.6 billion last quarter, posting a new profit of $9.5 billion. In Q2, 2012 Apple posted $11.6 billion on $29.6 billion revenue. These results are similar to the expectations Apple announced in Q1, 2013.
Apple sold 37.04 million iPhones this past quarter as opposed to 35.1 million units same time last year. This accounts for a 7% growth. Macs and iPods declined in sales, only 3.95 million and 5.06 million units sold respectively. iPad sales rose a staggering 65% this past quarter, 19.5 million units were sold as opposed to 11.8 million last year. At 5PM ET, CFO Peter Oppenheimer and CEO Tim Cook will be discussing these quarterly results with analysts. It will be interesting to hear their responses on tough questions related to Apple’s decreasing share prices and its product roadmap for the current quarter. Rumor has it that new iPhones, new iPads and new Macs are set to be announced in Q3, 2013.
