iPhone 4S, New iPad Help Apple Make £25 Billion

According to its recent conference call, Apple has earned $39.19 billion (£24.27 billion), in the second fiscal quarter of this year, by selling 35.1 million iPhones, 11.8 million iPads and 4 million Macs.

The company has announced a 94 per cent year-over-year increase of net profit, meaning that now the quarterly net profit is $11.6 billion (£7.18 billion).

The top selling Apple devices remain iPhones, with 35.1 million units sold in the March quarter. The IPhone had an 88 per cent unit growth over this time last year. Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster saw in this sales performance "proof that international growth is just beginning."

During the quarter ending 31st March, Apple has sold 11.8 million iPads, which means a 151 per cent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. The March release of the long rumoured third generation iPad with its top resolution display and the pricing strategy for the previous model, led to iPad's impressive sales.

Apple has also sold 4 million Macs during the quarter, a 7 per cent unit increase year on year - and 7.7 million iPods, a 15 per cent decline from the year-ago quarter.
