Apple records record profits – computers the key
Apple has announced record second quarter profits, with a revenue of $7.51 billion and net quarterly profit of $1.05 billion.
Macs seemed to be the big earner – Apple shipped 2,289,000 during the quarter, which is a 51 per cent unit growth and 54 per cent revenue growth over the year. But iPod sales were fairly static – 10,644,000 sold, which is just one per cent growth on the year.
“We’re delighted to report 43 per cent revenue growth and the strongest March quarter revenue and earnings in Apple’s history,” said Steve Jobs. “With over $17 billion in revenue for the first half of our fiscal year, we have strong momentum to launch some terrific new products in the coming quarters.”
