Apple have posted their second quarter results for 2013, with a quarterly revenue of $43.6 billion and net profit of $9.5 billion. These figures, as impressive as they are, represent a slight drop in net profit over the same period in 2012. Q2 2012 had Apple posting revenue of $39.2 billion and a net profit of $11.6 billion.
Apple also shared some figures relating to device sales over the quarter. 37.4 million iPhones were sold over the period, an increase of just over 2 million units over Q2 2012. 19.5 million iPads also found new homes, up from 11.8 million in 2012’s second quarter. Mac sales were slightly down on the 4 million sold at the same time last year, coming in at just under that total.
Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a statement “We are pleased to report record March quarter revenue thanks to continued strong performance of iPhone and iPad. Our teams are hard at work on some amazing new hardware, software, and services and we are very excited about the products in our pipeline.”
