Apple today reported its sales numbers for the fourth calendar quarter of 2013 and first fiscal quarter of 2014, noting they sold a whopping 51 million iPhones and 26 million iPads. The company also sold 4.8 million Macs and made above $4 billion from iTunes services alone. Apple is seeing record numbers across most of its product lines and has sold 3.8 million more iPhones than it did in the year ago quarter.
With all of these iPhones being sold, Apple’s iOS 7 usage also inched up to 80%. This means that most of the iPhones out in the market are now utilizing Apple’s newly redesigned iOS, and that older generations of the iPhone are likely being replaced by newer models. Tim Cook seemed very enthusiastic about reporting the sales numbers and seems to be excited about what it yet to come in Apple’s product lines.
It’s not surprising, especially when considering that Apple saw a record $7 billion revenue in its retail stores, meaning even more customers are shopping at its stores. During the quarter, Apple opened four new retail stores, and now has 420 stores worldwide. That comes as Apple continues to bring its iPhone, iPad and Mac to more countries around the world and sets up stores to support its customers.
It is great to see Apple doing so well, especially with the company introducing new products such as the new iPhone 5c, bringing Touch ID to the iPhone 5s, and completely redesigning iOS 7.
