| Apple Stock Watch

Apple has sold some 250 million iOS devices since the first iPhone was released in 2007. The news came from Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer during the company’s Q4 earnings report Tuesday afternoon.

AAPL Q4: 250 million iOS devices sold

Apple’s iOS lineup includes the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. US$11 billion of the quarter’s revenue came just from iPhone sales, and the iPhone 4S wasn’t yet available.

The Mac, iPhone and iPad maker broke its own quarterly revenue records yet again with $28.27 billion, and a $6.62 billion profit. Gross margins for the quarter came in at 40.3 percent, up from 36.9 percent compared to the same quarter last year.

Some 92 percent of the Fortune 100 companies are currently testing iPads for deployment in their businesses, up from 86 percent last year.

With the iPhone 4S out and available now, analysts expressed concern over Apple’s ability to produce enough inventory to meet demand especially during the holiday buying season. CEO Tim Cook, however, said he is confident Apple will be able to meet demand, and that the company has “a solid inventory.”

Apple is currently trading at $394.83 after hours, down 27.41 (-6.49%).

Title: “Apple Reports 205 Million iOS Devices Sold in Q4 2011

I wonder how many million Android devices were sold then.

And what was their profit?


The 250M number is total iOS devices sold to date (vs 190M total Android devices sold). Apple’s Q4 iOS unit sales look like 17M iPhones, 11.1M iPads, and some large percentage of the 6.6M iPods. Assuming half the iPods are iPod touch devices, that adds up to about 31M iOS devices in Q4.


Hey Jeff,
Please listen to the conference call again….if they sold 250M ios devices, do you think the stock would be down?

They sold: 17M iphones, 6.6M ipods and 11M ipads.

Pretty quickly, the investor community will remember that Apple’s revenues are up 54% over a year ago, and that they are in a league by themselves making profit, and the stock will blow through $500/share by mid 2012.
