We also got to find out just how many of their devices they sold in the quarter, with a total of 47.8 million iPhones, this is compared to 37 million iPhones for the same quarter the year before.
Apple also sold a total of 22.9 million iPads, which is up from 15.4 million iPads for the previous year, plus a total of 4.1 million Macs, this is down from the previous year where they sold 5.2 million Macs.
iPod sales are also on the decline with a total of 12.7 million iPods sold for the quarter, compared to 15.4 million for the previous year, and they announced a cash dividend of $2.65 per share which will be paid on the 14th of February.

Apple’s share price has taken a drop over the last few week and is just over the $500 mark, where it previously sat at$700 and it will be interesting to see if these results will get their price back up, this is their best quarter so far with record revenue and net profit to date.
