Apple reports massive iPhone and iPad sales

Cupertino continues to make billions.

Apple has reported an astonishing set of quarterly results, with the Cupertino company revealing iPhone sales surged by a massive 142 per cent, while the iPad jumped by a frankly insane 183 per cent.

In total, 20.34 million iPhones were sold during the most recent quarter, with the iPad shifting 9.25 million. The latter figure is sure to strike fear into Android Honeycomb tablet manufacturers, who haven’t come close to matching the iPad’s rampant success.

Financially, Apple’s net profit for the quarter came in at $7.31 billion (£4.53 billion). That’s more than double the same quarter in 2010, which saw Apple make $3.25 billion (£2 billion).

It’s not all plain sailing though. While Mac sales hit 3.95 million, up by 14 per cent, the iPod continued its decline, selling just 7.54 million, a decline of 20 per cent. It’s believed Apple may kill off the iPod Classic during its annual music event in September.
