Apple posted its earnings for Q3 FY12 on July 24, with quarterly revenue of $35 billion and a net profit of $8.8 billion, showing healthy growth of around 20% year-over-year. It also revealed some additional information in the press release, but most of the juicy tidbits were revealed only in the earnings call that followed.
Apple sold nearly 26.028 million iPhone units in the last quarter which ended in June. It generated $16.425 billion in revenue from iPhone sales.
Apple sold around 17.042 million iPad units, generating $9.171 billion in segment revenue.
Mac sales added up to 4.020 million units (1.010 Mac desktops and 3.010 Mac portables), generating $4.933 billion in total revenue.
iPod, iTunes and App Store
Apple sold nearly 6.751 million iPod units, generating $1.060 billion in revenue from hardware sales. It also made nearly $2.060 billion in revenue from iTunes, App Store and iBookStore sales.
The App Store is now available in 155 countries, and offers more than 650,000 apps and games, with 225,000 apps specifically for the iPad. It has surpassed more than $5.5 billion in payments to developers, which is way more than Google can claim yet.
It also made some additional revenue from peripheral sales, other hardware and software sales, and services, which added up to $1.554 billion.
All these numbers add up to $35.023 billion, Apple’s total revenue.
In the last quarter, Apple increased its cash reserves by $7.045 billion, bringing the total up to around $117.221 billion.
Geographically, while America still accounts for most of its sales, China is proving to be a huge opportunity for Apple. It generated $5.7 billion in revenue from China in Q3, with most of it coming from iPhone sales.
Going forward, we expect most of Apple’s growth to come from emerging markets in the Asia Pacific region.
Cook didn’t mention the iPad Mini or reveal any details of the next iPhone during the earnings call. Not that anyone expected him to.
