Apple Sold 26 Million iPhones, 17 Million iPads, 1.3 Million Apple TVs Last Quarter

Apple Sold 26 Million iPhones, 17 Million iPads, 1.3 Million Apple TVs Last Quarter

Yesterday, Apple announced Q3 financial results, and despite bringing in $35 billion in revenue and a net quarterly profit of $8.8 billion, analysts viewed the results as a big disappointment. However, what wasn't disappointing was the amount of hardware Apple managed to move. 

During the last quarter, iPhone sales were up 28% from a year ago, reaching 26 million. The bigger success was the iPad, which managed to jump 84% from last year to a record 17 million sold. But the surprise of the report was that Apple managed to sell 1.3 million Apple TVs. That's a staggering number—up 170% over last year—for a device once regarded as merely a "hobby" for the company. 

During the Q3 conference call, Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer, reiterated that even though it sold more Apple TVs than expected, the media device is still considered a hobby, but that the company will not give up on it. "We do it because we think it'll lead us somewhere," said Oppenheimer. "We'll see. 4 million isn't a small number and there are a lot of believers in it."
