Apple Q4 Earnings: 33.8 Million iPhones and 14.1 Million iPads Sold

The Apple Q4 earnings are in and the results look promising. Apple looks to have outperformed the projections, but the stock fell as much as 3.85% in after hours trading earlier today. Check out the full details below on the Apple Q4 earnings that were reported earlier this afternoon.

Apple sold 33.8 million iPhones for the September quarter, up from the 26.9 million sold during the same period in 2012. The record-breaking 9 million units sold opening weekend along with increased launch countries helped Apple achieve this number.  Apple reported that iPhone sales accounted for $19.5 billion of its $37.5 billion total revenue which accounts for about half of the company’s revenue

When it comes to the iPad Apple said that sales increased up to 14.1 million which is a slight rise from the 14 million sold during the same quarter last year. With the new launch of the both the iPad Air and iPad mini retina, we can expect iPad sales to drastically increase heading into the next quarter. Both new iPads will be sold alongside existing versions starting November 1 in more than 40 markets around the world. For the first time, China will be among the countries getting the latest iPad models on launch day.

Not surprising, Apple’s products seem superior and with the services offered like FreeMobileDataPlans that offer low cost iphone service for people who normally can’t afford iphone plans, then their popularity is only going to grow.
