“Combining iPhone, iPod, and iPod touch, we surpassed 365 million cumulative iOS sales, with more than 50 million in the March quarter,” Mr. Oppenheimer said. “The iOS ecosystem continues to expand and thrive with stores in more than 120 countries.”
He added that App Store sales are strong, too, with the 25 billionth app download happening in March.
Businesses are also big iPad users, according to Mr. Oppenheimer.
“iPad’s momentum in business and government also continues to build. The United States Air Force Air Mobility Command is deploying thousands of iPads to serve as electronic flight bags, storing technical publications and operations information for flight crew members and trainers,” he said. “Companies such as Bechtel and Bellflower Bait are using iPads for product management and viewing blueprints. Thousands of iPads are being deployed as mobile sales tools by companies such as Roche, Amgen, and Bayer.”
Apple launched the third generation iPad during the last two weeks of the March quarter and reported combined iPad 2 and new iPad sales of 11.8 million units. iPhone sales topped 35 million units for the quarter, and 7.7 million iPods, which includes iPod touch sales.
The company reported US$39.2 billion in revenue for the quarter and $11.6 billion in profits, breaking its own records once again.
“The new iPad is off to a great start, and across the year you’re going to see a lot more of the kind of innovation that only Apple can deliver,” added Apple CEO Tim Cook.
