Apple profits rise 15% on sales of 2.6M Macs, 5.2M iPhones
Apple said Tuesday that third-quarter profits rose nearly 15 percent to $1.23 billion, or $1.35 per diluted share, on record non-holiday quarter sales of $8.34 billion for the three-month period ended June 27, 2009.
These results compare to revenue of $7.46 billion and net quarterly profit of $1.07 billion, or $1.19 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin was 36.3 percent, up from 34.8 percent in the year-ago quarter. International sales accounted for 44 percent of the quarter's revenue.
Apple sold 2.6 million Macs during the quarter, representing a four percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter and the best ever June quarter in its history for personal computer sales. The company also sold 10.2 million iPods during the quarter, representing a seven percent unit decline from the year-ago quarter. Quarterly iPhones sold were 5.2 million, representing 626 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter.
"We're making our most innovative products ever and our customers are responding," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "We're thrilled to have sold over 5.2 million iPhones during the quarter and users have downloaded more than 1.5 billion applications from our App Store in its first year."
In accordance with the subscription accounting treatment required by GAAP, Apple recognizes revenue and cost of goods sold for iPhone and Apple TV over their estimated economic lives. Adjusting GAAP sales and product costs to eliminate the impact of subscription accounting, the corresponding non-GAAP measures for the quarter were $9.74 billion of "Adjusted Sales" and $1.94 billion of "Adjusted Net Income."
"We're extremely pleased to report record non-holiday quarter revenue and earnings and quarterly cash flow from operations of $2.3 billion," said Peter Oppenheimer, Apple's CFO. "Looking ahead to the fourth fiscal quarter of 2009, we expect revenue in the range of about $8.7 billion to $8.9 billion and we expect diluted earnings per share in the range of about $1.18 to $1.23."
Andy, 21 Jul 2009Hi there I must say I have egg on face, being a die hard n-series fan I was very much anti-iPh... moreI totally agree.No other phone beats the iPhone. I, being a N-series fan as well, was extremely disappointed with the N97. The bugs were endless...! Apple give us a well thought out and userfriendly phone. It has everything I want in a phone. N97 = pile of crap(and I mean a PILE of crap). Apple iPhone 3G S is my baby. Love it!!:)
David, 21 Jul 2009i am about to buy the 3GS, i tried one with a pair of ultimate ears super fi headphones, reall... morethere is a volume limit u just need to go to music settings (well its how it is on my iPod buy I abm sure its the same on the iPhone) and there u can edit it.
I had iPhone 3g.. Today I updated it to 3.0 os... In one day I hav to charge iPhone 3g twice... Really twice... I don't know why this is happening to me... Really I need ur help... Plz tell me does this happens with everyone... Tell me... I will be very thankful... I want to know does everybody charge iPhone 3g twice in a day when updated to 3.0.. tell me... I will be very thankful..
i am about to buy the 3GS, i tried one with a pair of ultimate ears super fi headphones, really happy with the audio quality, BUT.... is there a setting to change the maximum volume level? at maximum it still needs a bit more! and NO i am not deaf, as the rest of my friends and family agree with me, all my MP3`s are ripped at 320kbps on CD EX software
we have to admit the the first apple phone was a revolution.
but, till now, i don't see what this phone has in special. when we buy a phone, we are interested in a full package of features. this phone has a good marketing way, not because it is a good phone, but just because they let people focus on the good points.
if we consider that apple company is concentrated on pictures (it is the case of apple computer)so at least they must have a better camera resolution. they have ideas for pictures that you upload from the computer, and what about the pics that we take with the Iphone?
Touch focus to see how bad is the resolution?
suppose that i am not interested in the radio neither in the java, neither in the camera resolution, neither in microsoft application, so for what i am paying the price? to talk only and to use my voice for the applications. could you use your voice in public to open applications? and also to use the touch screen?
i don't think that this phone deserve this importance neither this price. it is just a "propaganda" for a bad product.
please, i am not offending anyone, but i would like to understand in what this "empty" phone is interesting?
eddie, 21 Jul 2009hey guys, how does the phone compare to 3g? Is it worth the upgade from 3g? How is the video... moreHey Eddie, I have upgraded to the 3GS from the 3G and lemme tell you the difference is immediately noticeable. The speed upgrade is absolutely amazing. Even with the 3G I thought the interface was snappy and quick, 3GS blows it out of the water. Gameplay is also phenomenal with enhanced processing power and hardware. More storage space is also nice with 16/32 GB storage for 3GS.
The camera is quite nice with its touch auto focus, and video quality is good I think. Even though the phone doesn't have alot of MP (only 3.15) the pictures look crisp enough as long as you don't blow them up to like posters or something. Voice control is alot more useful than I thought it would be, especially when driving. The digital compass integrates with Google maps perfectly and has come in handy ALOT more than I thought it would.
Overall, the Iphone is a wonderful device that will literally change your life for the better, and while the upgrade from the 3G to the 3GS may not be completely necessary, you will notice big changes in your experience. If you are buying a new phone, get the 3GS. If you already have a 3G, just see if it'd be worth it to upgrade. Also see if you can sell your old one for a good amount to help pay for the new one. Goodluck
hey guys, how does the phone compare to 3g? Is it worth the upgade from 3g? How is the video and camera quality to 3g? Is it faster? and any other comparisons i might have missed. I would appreciate someones opinion that has upgraded to the new 3gs from 3g. Thanx, eddie
Can you download music, video, pictures etc from your pc to iphone without having to buy from app store at exorbitant prices?
Anonymous, 21 Jul 2009Yes. Word, Excel, Powerpoint and PDF all open in the included Mail App. If you want to edit... moreThanks a lot for the explaination of the Office. Anyway, I was told that there's no bluetooth installed and therefore accepting or transfering of data is unable.
I have heard that apple is great however there are more people using windows and there is more available for microsoft however with mobile phones it seems the opposite. There are so many accessories for the iphone, it is hard to ignore when looking for the right choice in a phone. Too bad the iphone doesn't have bluetooth or can support tv subscription etc with Vodaphone live or they would have sold me. No need for a 10 mp camera as I already have one of these. The touchscreen on the apple is hard to ignore also. The bluetooth is the biggest problem for me. What a shame. I will be comparing closely with the samsung omnia 2 and omnia hd.
