The wheels aren’t coming off Apple’s iOS bus any time soon, judging by its fiscal Q2 financials. The company’s revenues were $39.2bn for the first three months of 2012, up from $24.7bn in the same period of 2011. The company’s net income was $11.6bn, up from $6bn this time last year. Apple sold 35.1m iPhones, 11.8m iPads and 7.7m iPods (up 88%, up 151% and down 15% year-on-year respectively). Apple now has cash reserves of $110bn, up from $81.5bn six months ago. In the ensuing analyst call, the company revealed that it has sold more than 365m iOS devices since the launch of the first iPhone in 2007, including 67m iPads. More stats? The iTunes store generated revenues of nearly $1.9bn in the last quarter, up 35% year-on-year, and now has 28m songs, 45k movies and 600k apps in its catalogue. 125m users have signed up for Apple’s iCloud service too, although the company gave no word on how many are also paying for the iTunes Match music option.
