Apple shifted a whopping 51 million smartphones in the final three months of 2013, driving it to new quarterly sales and revenue records to close out the year.
Apple saw a 6% year-on-year increase in revenue to reach a record-breaking quarterly revenue of $57.6 billion, but saw no increase in profits from the same quarter a year ago, coming in with a gain of $13.1 billion.
These strong results were driven by new sales records. The company recorded sales of 51 million iPhones and 26 million iPads during the final calendar quarter of 2013.
That’s a 7% year-on-year increase for smartphones and a 14% increase for tablets.
Mac sales were also up year-on-year by 19% to 4.8 million – not a sales record, alas. Unfortunately, iPod sales sharnk 52% year-on-year to just 6 million.
