Apple makes $28.27 billion in fourth quarter

Perhaps it's a testament to the sheer strength of the legacy Jobs has left behind but Apple is doing better than ever, and after seeing their fourth quarter results you wonder if they'll ever stop

Apple has posted its fourth quarter results showing revenue figures of $28.27 billion, with a net profit of $6.62 billion making it their best quarter yet and clearly showing the strength of their latest products.

To place those figures into perspective, this time last year Apple made revenue of $20.34 billion and a net profit of only (we say 'only') $4.31 billion, in business terms that's a huge increase.

Much of the cause for all these profits will of course be down to Apple's latest products with the company revealing that just in the last quarter the company has shifted 17.07 million iPhones, 11.12 million iPads and 4.89 millions Macs.

In the end many of these figures just become meaningless numbers, but to help place that into the real world that means in terms of iPad sales, Apple have seen a growth of 166 per cent from this time last year.

As if that wasn't enough Apple has already forecasted revenue of around $37 billion for the first quarter of next year which will of course take into account the phenomenal success the iPhone 4S has been enjoying since its launch.

What do you think, is Apple now the king of the hill or does it still have a way to go? Let us know what you think in the comments box below...
