15 interesting points from today’s earnings call

By , Oct 25, 2012

Apple just announced its financial results for Q4 2012, and is now finishing up its earnings call. As promised, we’ve put together a list of some of the more interesting bits from the call to pass on to you.

Among that list, is the fact that Apple added $4 billion to its growing cash pile last quarter, bringing its cash total to more than $121 billion. It also sold a stout 44 million iOS devices during that time…

  • Apple now has $121 billion in cash
  • 44 million iOS devices sold in the quarter
  • More than 100 million iPads sold to date
  • 1.3 million Apple TVs sold in the quarter
  • More than 5 million ATVs sold in 2012 fiscal year
  • China now accounts for 15% of Apple’s revenue
  • iPod share is still 70%+ of MP3 player market
  • 190 million iCloud users
  • Now more than 700,000 apps in the App Store
  • Record quarter for app sales
  • Record quarter for iTunes sales, $2.1 billion
  • New iTunes launching soon
  • There’s now 390 Apple Stores worldwide
  • Apple Stores see average of 19,000 visitors per week
  • iPhone 5 will be be in 100 countries by December

Again, this wasn’t really a blockbuster quarter for Apple in terms of sales numbers. But that’s more or less because it was a transitioning period for most of the company’s products.

Apple refreshed nearly every one of its product lines in the last two months, and even unveiled a new tablet. So between that and the holidays coming up, we suspect a strong finish to the calendar year.

      I’ve been wondering the same question, and so has everyone. But at this point it’s a stupid question because it will be released at any point now. I’m hoping tomorrow to coincide with iPad Mini pre-orders, but I may very well be wrong. We’ll just have to wait, but only until Wednesday cuz since Apple says October, then it can’t be after that.

    Launching in 100 countries by December! WTF, they can’t even supply the countries it’s launched in already. Three bloody weeks I’ve been waiting for my order to arrive. Can’t they bring availability up to a satisfactory level before launching in so much countries and stretching supply so thin people have to wait a month after ordering to receive one.

      And give preferential treatment to one market? They’re a global company now, and have to launch, as much as possible, globally. In the long run, it’s probably better for their bottom line, because it builds up demand. Nonetheless, we feel your pain. ;^)
