Apple posts record breaking financial results for Q1, 2013 - read the full textApple has announced the financial results for the first quarter of the 2013 fiscal year (which ended in December 29, 2012) with some record breaking numbers. The following table shows the results of the first quarter, compared to results from the previous quarter and the same quarter last year....


Sort by:

No surprises here. Each iPhone (or any Apple product) represents record-breaking profit--simply because it's ridiculously OVERPRICED!

In many places, you can buy 3 Galaxy S3 for the price of 2 iPhone 5. So factor that by the millions...

You speak all you can, u call iPhone 5 bad, can you name any other phone which can even come close to its design language leave out the interface and usability just the design itself is top class, markets are changing people are ready to shell out money for the premium look and feel basically people love to flaunt their assets...

Some people will surely think all these results are bunch of lies other will believe that huge wholesellers like gsmarena. 2 facts
1. apple will not give a single penny in devidend despite making "largest profit in human history".
2. its share price will keep sliding just like 33% it did in last quarter.

According to Tim Cook, the Ipad is actually having a knock on effect with the MACs. After users have played with their tablets they are slowly starting to move over to apple hence taking away something from Micosoft.
It is something that Apple sees as an area to focus on to grow even further.
So doesnt look like Apple is likely to slow down anytime soon.

Apple is a pathetic company that only cares about money and not its users. The latest iPhone is only a minor refresh, ios 6 maps are literally crap and apple is still using their so-called 'reality distortion field' to make everything look clean. I hope that apple will crash and burn.

I've noticed that comments are blocked when I try to say something good about Samsung :)

Apple is good so do Samsung, just 1$ Billion difference between these companies revenue:

and there goes the answer to all Apple Critics who were flying high in blogs and medias stating that Apple is declining and share value is deteriorating blah blah.... They have a perfect business model and their strategy is top class... We can try to pull them down with all sort of editorials and bias reports but at the end Numbers speak for itself..Apple Rockz..

Not to bash Apple, but their products (despite how good they are) are ridiculously expensive.
They have successfully targeted the higher income demographic and have successfully retained their customer base. A good strategy. They have done a good job and congrats to them.

It would be nice to see how much of their income is generated by their cloud based services as well.
