Here it is folks. After all of the rumors of slipping iPhone and iPad demand, which sent the company’s stock tumbling, and the many ‘doomed’ headlines, Apple’s Q1 2013 quarterly earnings report is finally here. So how’d they do?

Given the significance of these numbers, we’ll just get right down to it. During the holiday quarter, Apple sold 47.8 million iPhones, 22.9 million iPads and produced 54.5 billion in revenue. We’ll have more figures after the break…

Here’s a breakdown of all of Apple’s notable sales figures from last quarter:

  • Revenue: $54.5 billion
  • EPS: $13.81
  • Gross Margin: 38.6%
  • iPhone: 47.8 million
  • iPad: 22.9 million
  • Mac: 4.1 million
  • iPod: 12.7 million

And here’s Apple’s press release:

“The Company sold 47.8 million iPhones in the quarter, representing 128 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 15.43 million iPads during the quarter, a 111 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. The Company sold 5.2 million Macs during the quarter, a 26 percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. Apple sold 15.4 million iPods, a 21 percent unit decline from the year-ago quarter.

“We’re thrilled with our outstanding results and record-breaking sales of iPhones, iPads and Macs,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “Apple’s momentum is incredibly strong, and we have some amazing new products in the pipeline.”

“We are very happy to have generated over $17.5 billion in cash flow from operations during the December quarter,” said Peter Oppenheimer, Apple’s CFO. “Looking ahead to the second fiscal quarter of 2012, which will span 13 weeks, we expect revenue of about $32.5 billion and we expect diluted earnings per share of about $8.50.”

Despite the fact that Apple set company records for both revenue and iPhone sales during the quarter, the company missed Wall Street projections in both metrics. Analysts were expecting 50+ million iPhones and $55B in revenue.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t matter how many times you say ‘record’ when you miss Street projections. Since Apple published the earnings report, its stock is down some 5% in after-hours trading. At the moment, it’s at $488 per share.

Apple’s earnings call begins in about 15 minutes, and if you’d like, you can listen to it. Otherwise, be sure to keep checking back with us this afternoon as we bring you announcements and commentary from the call.

  • IPH0NE5 and ipad 4 are the best

    • Son just because 48 million people are idiots and buy the latest Apple gadget in order to show off, doesn’t make their products the best. Iphone screen sucks, ipad is arguably the best tablet in my opinion, but android tablets are very close to beating it.

      • Stormy08

        I don’t understand why Android and iOS users keep calling each other idiots and worse all this time. Just because Apple and Sammy hate each other doesn’t mean we have to. Let them fight their wars, and enjoy the benefits of more choices and better products.

        The iPhone 5 screen sucks in comparison to what? Certainly not your SG3. For a display analysis of both devices, go read up on fella.

      • Emre SUMENGEN

        1) I’m one of those 48 million people, and I’m DEFINITELY not an idiot (I’d rather make you keep that title).
        2) If what you said was true, WHAT THE HECK are you doing here? TROLL!

      • so i can be informed about my enemies and see their weaknesses and therefore make people like you cry about me offending them for not liking their iShit. Any questions iSheep?

      • Emre SUMENGEN

        1) I don’t know on what planet you’re living, but neither I’m Apple, nor you’re Google, yourself. So, you and some other being ENEMIES is utter nonsense. If you can even think anything close to that, you should be in a mental hospital… Even those rival companies are in collaboration when necessary. So, users of devices manufactured by companies, can only be people with different taste.

        2) I’m not crying foul because you don’t like idevices (which, you’re again incapable of mentioning in a civilized way), but because you’re incapacity of expressing your opinions (if, of course, your’s can be considered as “opinions”. I’d rather choose “garbage”).

        3) I honestly couldn’t care less what the F* you like or not. I don’t even know you, and even if I did, I would still not care.

        So, get informed as much as you like. But, I’d suggest you try to keep that bill of yours shut, instead of swearing…

      • The reply u just made basically proves my last comment 🙂

      • Kurt

        haha you met emre, at least he wasnt flirting with you. he used to say all kinds of homosexual things on this sight. he is troll, just ignore him. he’s pretty dumb to boot

      • Haha thanks dude! now i have one less troll to argue with!

      • Kurt

        no problem. glad to help

      • Emre SUMENGEN

        LOL, Buy one, get one for free… Are you the one, that comes free Kurt?


        Aren’t these your words to start with? All the while you’re just flaming in a conversation, without even announcing any opinion, makes YOU a troll, the way I see it.

        (I know, you DON’T have any opinions to share, and I feel for you…)
        (Honestly, I don’t)

      • Emre SUMENGEN

        Hey Stanley, if you’re desperate enough to be happy for Kurt’s help (help? Is this WoW or what?), it makes me sure that you’re just an 8 year-old, with pimples…

      • Kurt

        what 8 year old has pimples? what 8 year old goes through puberty. you’re and idiot. @facebook-1799657635:disqus deserves more respect but your are the typical homo on this site saying nasty things so I won’t expect much from you

        Go do what I did.. I went to the verizon store… G S4 screen was noticeably dimmer at 100% brightness then the iPhone 5.. When outdoors the Galaxy S4 is too dark. Thing is with wifi off ( lte only ) the iPhone also loaded web pages consistently faster. My conclusion is Android is 8 gig of bloat ware. iOS is only 3 gigs and runs smoother. Android devices need the extra memory and CPU to run android because its much larger. This is why Android smartphones with hardware specs similar to the iPhone run android horribly when you’re used to the smoothness and quickness of the iPhone 5

  • CollegiateLad

    $54.5 billion revenue in a quarter? Wow!!!

  • Wtf like it matters if they missed by just a few (a lot but in retrospective not really) they had an awesome quarter and people need to buy more stocks

  • AAPL is down more than 8% now. It’s a disaster.

    • Z3r0ViP

      No, AAPL is up 1.83% or $514 not down.

      • You are absolutely right. But after the report, after hour trading is NASTY, down more than $42/share.

  • seyss

    post last-last quarter for comparison pls

  • Wall Street is just plain nut.

  • Wow I’m even shocked by these earnings!

  • Daniel Dorilas

    apple will make more cash after the iPhone 5S release.

  • Hyr3m

    Those figures are actually really bad… Just have a look at the stock market’s reaction ! AAPL just lost 10% of its value, dropping by about 50$ a share!
