Apple has given out the financial report for Q4 and we are happy to know that the company has performed extremely well! The company gave out a number of details that included total revenue, total number of iPhones and iPads sold and so on.
By the way, Q4 for Apple means the quarter that ends in September. The company has a shifter fiscal year, so you can logically consider it as the financial report for Q3 if you want. Apple sold a number of iPhones and iPads in this small period of time and the company almost equaled the total sales figures of the Samsung Galaxy S4.
Now coming to the official numbers, Apple’s total revenue in sales was $37.5 billion. The company was able to exceed its own sales expectations of $34-37 billion. Out of this number, Apple was able to make a net profit of $7.5 billion. That’s a big number, but if you compare this total to the net profit that the company made last year, there is a considerable amount of drop! Apple made a net profit of $8.2 billion that came from $36 billion of sales.
