Apple has announced its latest quarterly financial results, for its fiscal 2013 fourth quarter ending September 28. Revenues were up 4.2% year-on-year to $37.5bn, while the company’s net profit dropped 8.5% to $7.5bn.
Apple sold 33.8m iPhones, 14.1m iPads and 4.6m Macs during the quarter, compared to 26.9m, 14m and 4.9m in the corresponding quarter last year.
“We’re pleased to report a strong finish to an amazing year with record fourth quarter revenue, including sales of almost 34 million iPhones,” said CEO Tim Cook in a statement.
The company’s next quarter is shaping up to be a stonker though. Apple has new iPhones – the 5c and 5s – as well as new iPads in the form of the iPad Air and a revamped iPad mini. The company sold 9m of the new iPhones over their launch weekend, but only had 10 days of sales of the new devices in its fiscal Q4.
Apple said in its financials that it expects revenues of between $55bn and $58bn in the final quarter of 2013 (its fiscal Q1 2014). We’ll have more details for you from the company’s earnings cal tomorrow morning.
