In the last three months, Apple sold a whopping 8.75 million iPhones. That’s a jump of 90% from the same period last year. The last three months also made up Apple’s best non-Christmas quarter ever! Needless to say, Apple is now swimming in cash from the sale of all those phones: They made $5.3 billion in revenue, or an average of $600 per phone. Which is a huge chunk of the total $13.5 billion in revenue. And that growth, 131 percent over the year ago quarter, is insane. If you’re wondering what the most important product to Apple is right now, you can stop. Oh, and there’s a single mention of a “future product transition” that’ll impact margins.


Fewer iPods sold overall, down to 10.89 million, but iPod touch sales are still up (63 percent), meaning they’re making up more of the iPod mix than ever.

And $1.1 billion in sales from iTunes, including apps, with over 4 billion app downloads.

Here’s the report from Apple:
