Apple sold £7.3bn worth of products in the period, making £1.1bn of profit in the process – both results were all-time highs for the period.
Sales of every single product line were up, with iPhone in particular performing strongly. 4.4 million units of Apple’s mobile phone were sold – a huge 88 per cent up on the same period in 2007. Mac sales also climbed by nine per cent, hitting 2.5m units.
There’s life left in the iPod too, with a staggering 22,727,000 units shifted in the period – up three per cent on 2007. The company added that non-US sales now account for 46 per cent of its overall total.
“Our outstanding results generated over $3.6bn in cash during the quarter,” Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer stated. “Looking ahead to the second fiscal quarter of 2009, we expect revenue in the range of about $7.6 billion to $8 billion.”
