Apple had a very good first quarter to its 2012 fiscal year. In the quarter ending Dec. 31, 2012, Apple posted record revenue of $46.33 billion and record net profit of $13.06 billion. Revenue was up from $26.74 billion in 1Q 2011; net profit was up from $6 billion in 1Q 2011.

Apple set several all-time quarterly sales records in the 1Q 2012:
37.04 million iPhones, up 128% in units sold from 1Q 2011
15.43 million iPads, up 111% in units sold over 1Q 2011
5.2 million Macs, up 26% in units sold over 1Q 2011
