iPhone sales hit new record high
Thursday July 25th 2013
Apple enjoyed strong iPhone sales in the last financial quarter, although the performance of iPad tablets and Mac computers dipped.
The technology giant sold 31.2 million iPhones during the three month period to June, up 5.2 million year-on-year but down 6.2 million from the previous quarter.
Sales of iPads, meanwhile, hit 14.6 million between April and June, down 2.4 million on the same period last year, while Macs recorded 3.8 million sales, down 0.2 million.
It meant Apple's quarterly profit of £4.49 billion (6.9 billion US dollars) was down from £5.73 billion (8.8 billion US dollars) year-on-year and down from £6.27 billion (9.56 billion US dollars) in the first quarter of this year.
"We are especially proud of our record June quarter iPhone sales of over 31 million and the strong growth in revenue from iTunes, Software and Services," said Tim Cook, chief executive at the firm.
"We are really excited about the upcoming releases of iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks (operating systems), and we are laser-focused and working hard on some amazing new products that we will introduce in the fall and across 2014."
