Apple released its report for the second quarter that ended March 30, 2013. According to the company, the Q2 revenue was $43.6 billion with a profit of $9.5 billion. The profit has dropped a bit since last year Apple recorded a profit of $11.6 billion for the same quarter. These numbers are due to the drop in the company's stock profit from $12.30 to $10.09 per share and the drop in the gross margin value from 47.5 to 37.5 percent.
On the other hand, Apple increased the sales of its devices significantly compared to the sales in the same quarter last year. In Q2 Apple sold 37.4 million iPhones compared to 35.1 million sold in the same quarter last year. The sale of the iPads increased as well with 19.5 million sold in Q2 compared to the 11.8 million sold in Q2 in 2012. Only the sales of the Mac computers came to a standstill, showing no significant progress at all with 4 million devices sold same as before.
If we compare the numbers of Q2 with the ones from Q1, we can see that there is a significant decrease in the sales of iPhones and iPads on the market. Just as a reminder, in Q1, Apple sold 47.8 million iPhones and 22.9 million iPads, with revenue of $54.5 billion and net profit of $13.1 billion. This information however, does not raise the alarms in the company. They say that sales usually drop before a new device is released on the market. Apple is planning to release a new iPhone later this June or September.
