Apple reports Q3 2012 results. iPhone sales up, iPad sales down
Apples has unveiled financial results for its fiscal 2012 fourth quarter – which corresponds to the third calendar quarter (July – September). The numbers aren’t too different than those reported in the previous quarter. The Cupertino-based company posted revenue of $36 billion, and net profit of $8.2 billion – compared to Q2’s revenue of $35 billion, and profit of $8.8 billion.
26.9 million iPhones were sold in Q3 (0.9 million more than in the previous quarter). Over 5 million of those are iPhone 5 units. iPad sales fell quarter-on-quarter to 14 million units – from 17 million in Q2.
Apple CEO Tim Cook declared:
“We’re entering this holiday season with the best iPhone, iPad, Mac and iPod products ever, and we remain very confident in our new product pipeline.”
Indeed, with the iPad Mini (pictured above) and the refreshed 9.7 inch iPad, Apple should make nice profit this holiday season. Both the iPad Mini and the new 9.7 inch iPad can be pre-ordered as of today in the US and other countries, and will be delivered starting November 2.
