Apple sold 43.7 million iPhones last quarter beating expectations; stock soars on split news

0. phoneArena 23 Apr 2014, 15:58 posted on

Apple reported its fiscal second quarter earnings report and it showed that the company sold 43.7 million Apple iPhones in the three month period. That is down from the 51 million units sold by Apple during its fiscal first quarter, which included the holiday season. A more fair comparison would be with last uear's fiscal second quarter, a period that saw Apple sell 37.4 million iPhone units. Wall Street was expecting 38.7 million iPhones to be rung up in the quarter...

They mean it differently than you're interpreting it. The numbers are thousands, but you can see at the top it say, "(Units in thousands, Revenue in millions)", so it's 43,719 thousand units, which means you multiply it by 1,000, which gives you 43.7 million. A thousand thousands is a million, and a thousand millions is a billion. So, they sold 43.7 million iPhones and made $26 billion in revenue from it.

You don't earn revenue. Revenue is total sales. In general terms earnings are the profits that are left after all costs and taxes are paid. So through sales they took in $46.2 billion in revenue. After all the bills were paid they earned $10.2 billion.

What is there to research? Earnings and revenue are completely different.

From the article "Apple earned $10.2 billion on $45.6 billion in revenue". It's right there in plain English. They had $45.6 billion in sales. After paying the bills they earned $10.2 billion.

Perhaps you need to take finance 101.

How the hell can Apple claim their worshipers are smarter than Android owners? You can't even understand a simple financial summary.

Source said "Apple earned $45.6 billion in revenue during Q2"

No they didn't, they earned $10.2 billion. When I corrected him he told me to do some research.

Either Source is trolling or he doesn't have a clue about, as you say, "very basic finance".

Apple is great at extracting money from the 1% and wannabe 1%, that is for sure.

from the 1%? No, they are good at getting money from those who cannot afford their products. Their slick marketing campaigns brainwash millions of Americans each year - it is a Zombie epidemic here - matter of fact, there is going to be a new TV series on this called iZombie...

Right now, millions of people are using Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Keynote, Pages, and audio and video production apps on their thin, light, hardware efficient iPads. That sounds like "Form & Function" to me.

Meanwhile, millions more people are so busy customizing their launchers, flashing ROMs, and sideloading questionable apps on laggy hardware that they have no time to appreciate what "Form & Function" even means on their tablets.

Mind boggling indeed!

Right on the money.

After they release a decent sized phone,
Ifans can get stuff done without packing two devices.
Using a 4in is a joke in today's tech age.
It's all about separating you from your money before giving you it all.

Cheers

I should add after all, what is most used part of a device, the screen.
And here its sporting a small 4in with huge bezels an one that probably causes more retina damage then it does help with its large senior base.
312ppi 4in, enormous bezels, top of the line for what,..yeah close to a grand!

They'll extract not only all the money from your wallet but the plasma from your kool aid ridden body for a larger screen device!

Tell that story to the doctors, lawyers, business people, artists, musicians, and any other professionals who use the iPhone in their daily 9 to 5 life. I bet plenty of them would be glad to regale you with tales of how much money they have made from that "4in is a joke" productivity tool.

A lot of the time in professions they have to use what is mandated true enough.

Those in professional detail, usually are older an well off an buy because of status too before function even when alternative is equal or better.

Glad you pointed that out.

This is quite true about the tiny iPhone screen -- "that probably causes more retina damage then it does help". It is well know that focusing on a tiny screen is quite stressful on the eyes.

Exactly...because ppl dont use productivity software on Android...

Whats extremely funny tho...is those same practices you mention are done on PC's....and yet it doesnt get frowned upon.

Yea...its mind boggling that someone would treat their phone...thats so much like a PC... like a PC..

Ain't nobody got time for that. We're too busy downloading ROMS, customizing wallpapers, sounds, widgets, toolbars, kernels, modems, themes, launchers, dialers, keyboards, and boot animations!

BRB..xda just released another ROM for my S4. Need to nandroid+TiBu.

He is right on the money indeed.

-iPad generated 4x mobile web traffic than all Android tablets combined.

-iPad has 95% share of education market.

-98% customer satisfaction rate among iPad owners, 2/3 of people planning to buy a tablet in next 90 days plan to buy iPad.

Fad & Fortune indeed!

Nice job speaking for the 1% of Android users. You're the only person I can think of that turns an option into something negative btw.

Let me guess, your dad can beat up my dad and your brother is bigger than my brother. amidoingitright?

Only one percent of the Android userbase cares about customization. Gotcha.
