Apple Q4: iPhone sales up 16%, iPad plateaus

Monday, 28th October 2013 21:55 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Apple’s fourth quarter financials show the iPhone 5 leading a resurgence of smartphone sales, while the iPad remained largely static.

For the quarter ending September 28, Apple reported revenue of $37.5 billion, up from $36 billion during the same quarter one year ago, but a quarterly net profit of $7.5 billion, down from $8.2 billion in 2012. Its gross margin feel year-on-year from 40% to 37%.

Sales of iPhones grew by 26% to 33.8 million, establishing a new September quarter records – likely thanks to new models 5s and less popular 5c.

The iPad had a less stellar quarter, selling 14.1 million – below Apple’s 14.5 million forecast and only a minor improvement on the 14 million of the same quarter one year ago.

Thanks, GamesIndustry.

    I’ve bought a iPhone 5s this is my first iPhone.. i’m no super fan or whatever i just wanted something different..

    And considering that the iPhone is the only smartphone out there which isn’t a mil long and a mil wide, pockets ain’t getting bigger.

    I expect most people in the market for an iPad were holding out for the announcement of the ipad 5 (Air)?
