Apple's Huge Quarter in Charts
posted another monster quarter, just as some were starting to doubt it.
Again, Apple's most impressive statistic is its overall sales growth: With more than $39 billion in revenue last quarter, Apple's sales grew 59% year-over-year, far faster than its peers.
The iPhone business continues to lead Apple, and the 35 million iPhones shipped during the quarter were above expectations.
iPad shipments, at 12 million, were slightly below expectations, suggesting a slowdown in iPad sales ahead of the new iPad launch in March.
Mac sales were low at 4 million, but at this point, those don't matter as much. The iPad and iPhone are obviously the most important areas for the company today.
