Apple sold 27 million iPhones during the quarter, which was better than analyst estimates

Apple has been on a new product assault for the past few months. Things kicked off with the iPhone 5 launch in September and culminated this week with the announcement of a fourth generation iPad, the iPad mini, new iMacs, and a new 13" MacBook Pro with Retina Display.
Now, Apple has released its earnings for Q4 and the company recorded $36 billion versus analyst estimates of $35.80 billion. Net profit for the quarter came in at $8.2 billion. Earnings per share (EPS) rang in at $8.67 versus analyst estimates of $8.75 per share.
Numbers were up across the board compared to the same period last year when the company announced earnings, profit, and EPS of $28.3 billion, $6.6 billion, and $7.05 respectively.
During the quarter, the company sold 26.9 million iPhones (53 percent growth from a year ago), 14 million iPads (26 percent growth), and 4.9 million Macs (one percent growth). Apple’s iPod numbers continue their downward slide with quarterly sales of 5.3 million units (a 19 percent decline from a year ago).
“We’re very proud to end a fantastic fiscal year with record September quarter results,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We’re entering this holiday season with the best iPhone, iPad, Mac and iPod products ever, and we remain very confident in our new product pipeline.”

Talking of growth here is an interesting nugget. Apple TV sales are running neck and neck with Microsoft Xbox sales. Last quarter Apple TV outsold the Xbox and this quarter it sold only slightly less. Not bad for a 'hobby'.

So, no one' buying apple tv either? Xbox 360's have been in the field for what, 7 years? The consoles aren't selling anymore because anyone that wanted one, has had 7 years to get one.

Dude take 1 second and think who you are talking to. It doesn't matter how long it has been out. The only thing that matters is that crApple "sold" more. But it is nice when the crApple PR machine a.k.a. Tony has to dig up old and highly irrelevant sales records. I hope they pay him well for all his many sleepless nights of defending them in every possible way.

Exactly. Time to quit feeding the troll.
