47.8 million units of the Apple iPhone in the quarter, compared to 37 million sold last year. 22.9 million Apple iPads were sold in the period which ended last month, compared to 15.4 million sold last year. The number of tablets sold in the quarter was also a new record for the Cupertino based tech titan. Apple also declared a quarterly dividend of $2.65 per share, payable on February 14th.
For the second quarter, Apple says it is looking to report revenue between $41 billion and $43 billion, gross margin between 37.5% and 38.5% and a tax rate of 26%. Investors seem not too happy with the gross margin figures as Apple stock is down $15 after-hours to $499.
