iPhone and iPad sales grows more than 100%; doubles profits.

Apple today announced its financial results for Q4 2011 and the numbers are nothing short of record breaking. The Cupertino-giants upped their revenue from $26.74 billion from the same period in 2010, to $46.33 billion last year.

The company’s main sales hero was, of course, the iPhone, selling 37.04 million units across all the varieties. Apple also sold 15.4 million iPad tablets – a boost of 111% from last year. The iPod range continued to do well, selling 15.4 million units, with Mac computers tailing along as usual with 5.2 million unit sales.

The profits doubled as well, with the company making a cool $13.06 billion, compared to $6 billion in same quarter last year.

CEO Tim Cook is obviously pleased and has emailed his employees congratulating them for their efforts.


Thanks to everyone’s hard work, we’re off to a great start in 2012. Last week in New York we launched a groundbreaking initiative for education with iBooks textbooks, and today we reported the strongest quarter in Apple’s history. Please join me tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. in Town Hall. We’ll review our record-setting results and discuss some exciting new things going on at Apple. The meeting will be broadcast live to many sites in Cupertino and other Apple locations. Please check Apple Web for details.
