That's how come. However, even with that and higher revenues, they only achieved same level of profit... that's bad.
Sadly ifan enjoy the most for resell their iproducts.. Over so many years, none of iproducts is a dud.. All have good sales.
It lead to consumer thinking nothing can go wrong when u spend on apple. Not an easy feat. Gd job

If you can't afford Mercedes (read Apple) buy Hyundai (read Samsung) with bigger and more powerful engine (read bigger screen and more powerful processor). Be happy about it and donít cry only because Mercedes (read Apple) is expensive! End of story!

Simp... moreThe difference is that the Mercedes costs more to make and that's why it costs more. The iPhone is cheaper to make but sells for more, so naives like you pay Mercedes prices for a Hyundai :-) And by the way I'm a Mercedes driver and I can assure you that the iPhone is not a Mercedes and I will never buy this cheap gadget.
buying the same old mercede since 2007 must be real waste of money...same old ugly design...same everything just increase in power with each new model..same how boaring.. no innovation....and dont even compare this rotten apple with NOKIA. if u do want to compare then compare it with samsung,...my nokia n9 is 100000x times better than iph5...u better dont compare ferrari (n9) with mercedes(iphone)...
Hey its funny how fandroids react to apple news! Childish! Lolz. Hope, they haven't stopped eating apple,the fruit, in anger. Btw, i m on xperia play.

I expected this reaction from people,, hehehe! and the funny thing about this is apple AXED some of their employees and still posted a record breaking revenue?? how come?? ah?! maybe Apple found out that those employees was using android or windows the reason that apple terminate them! lols!!!!

0 rupees .. so the huge difference is noticable..eve lumia 920 is launched in india with a price tag of rupees 35000....apple is only robbing money... and cheating with its loyal customers...

are you from which counter
This growth is not comparable with the previous quarters. Apple has entered new markets (countries) and also the smartphone category is growing which basically means everyone in the category has sales growth. Lets compare their percentage growth with the Industry and Smartphone Segment Growth Percentage.
An analysis should be done on same markets which the iP4s was selling and compare the growth. This will give us an idea as to compare. eg sales in US, UK, EU, Korea, Japan, China, RSA.
The best thing would be to look at whats Samsung, Nokia. LG and HTC's trends are like. Then we can commment as to the achievement of Apple.
I don't really know abou that guy, but here in Bulgaria, the iPhone(16gb) sells for no less than Euro 650 and the S3 sells for no less than Euro400(again 16gb).
