Apple has reported impressive financial results for its fiscal second quarter, which ended on 27 March. The company posted revenues of $13.5 billion – up 49% year-on-year – while its quarterly profits jumped 90% to $3.07 billion in the same period. Apple sold a record 8.75 million iPhones during the quarter, and 10.89 million iPods. Although iPod sales were down slightly year-on-year, iPod touch sales were up 63%. The iTunes Store generated $1.1 billion of sales from music, video and apps. However, as a sign of Apple’s priorities, compare that $1.1 billion of content revenues to the $5.45 billion it made from iPhone handset sales, iPhone accessory sales and payments from mobile operators.
