Net income in the company’s fiscal second quarter was nearly double then the net income , a year ago.
Analysts polled by FactSet were expecting earnings of $10.07 per share for the latest quarter, Apple’s fiscal second. Revenue was $39.2 billion, up 59 percent from a year ago. Analysts were expecting $37 billion.
iPad sales came in below analyst expectations, at 11.8 million units. But that was still two and a half times as many as it sold in the same quarter a year ago. Apple launched a new iPad model in the quarter.
Mac sales were also slightly below expectations, at 4 million.
The relative strength of iPhone sales means they accounted for 58 percent of Apple’s revenue, more than ever. Three years ago, the figure was 27 percent.
As has been the trend the last year, Asia, and in particular China, accounted for much of the revenue growth. A quarter of Apple’s sales now come from Asia, excluding Japan.
