Apple has once again baffled the smartphone market with their announcement of having sold a massive 47.8 million iPhones (including the iPhone 5 this time around) in a single quarter. This week Apple is making their first report of the year with numbers surrounding their fiscal Q1 2013, this representing the quarter that ended for them on December 29th, 2012. The iPhone segment alone represented a massive jump for the company as last year this same quarter Apple sold 37 million iPhone units across the board.
This quarter also represents a lovely jump for the iPad with 22.9 million units sold compared to just 15.4 million one year ago this same quarter. This is largely due to the iPad mini we must expect, while the iPhone's jump is certainly due to the launch of the iPhone 5 and its fully-active status in this quarter's reading.
The full financial results of this quarter include a massive 61 percent of all revenue for international sales, while average weekly revenue for the company jumped nearly a full billion dollars compared to one year ago with $4.2 billion per week. This report includes 12.7 million iPods sold compared to a slightly larger number a year ago at 15.4 million, letting us know that Apple's sales aren't all going up - some are merely adjusting, so to speak.
You'll be able to see the full results of this quarter's announcements through our own massive Apple hub right this minute if you check the must-read and daily news sections, with Apple letting the world know once again that they remain dominant.
