Η Apple δημοσίευσε τα οικονομικά αποτελέσματα του Q4

Έσοδα ύψους $28.24 δισ. και κέρδη της τάξεως των $6.62 δισ. και τα δύο αποτελούν μεγέθη ρεκόρ για την εταιρία. Επίσης ρεκόρ σημείωσε στις πωλήσεις σε Macs (4.89 εκατομμύρια) και iPads (11.12 εκατομμύρια), ενώ σε υψηλά επίπεδα παραμένουν φυσικά και οι πωλήσεις iPhone (17.1 εκατομμύρια) λίγες μέρες μόνο μετα και την κυκλοφορία του iPhone 4s το οποίο σίγουρα θα δώσει μεγάλη ώθηση όπως φαίνεται από τα στοιχεία των πρώτων ημερών.

H Apple σχεδιάζει τον Mac, ο οποίος σε συνδιασμό με το OSX, το iLife, το iWork και άλλο επαγγελματικό λογισμικό αποτελεί τον καλύτερο προσωπικό υπολογιστή στον κόσμο. Επίσης οδηγεί την επανάσταση της ψηφιακής μουσικής με τα iPods και το online κατάστημα του iTunes. Ακόμα η Apple επαναπροσδιόρισε την έννοια του κινητού τηλεφώνου με το επαναστατικό iPhone και το App Store, και μαζί με το iPad 2 που πρόσφατα μπήκε στη αγορά κατάφερε καθορίσει την πορεία και το μέλλον των κινητών μέσων επικοινωνίας και ενημέρωσης και των υπολογιστικών συσκευών.
Γιαυτούς και πολλούς άλλους λόγους πλέον έχει έσοδα που ξεπερνούν τα $100 δισ. ενώ οι διεθνείς πωλήσεις της αποτελούν το 63% της δραστηριότητας για αυτό το τρίμηνο.
