Apple sets new sales record

Apple has posted record revenue of US$26.74 billion and a record net quarterly profit of $6 billion.

The results compare to revenue of $15.68 billion and a net quarterly profit of $3.38 billion for the same period a year ago.

Apple sold 4.13 million Macs during the quarter, a 23% increase over the year-ago quarter. Just over 16 million iPhones were sold in the quarter (up 86% on last year) while Apple unleashed 7.33 million iPads on the world during the quarter.

iPod sales took a 7% dip against last’s year’s figure, coming in at 19.45 million. But who wants an iPod and an iPhone?

“We had a phenomenal holiday quarter with record Mac, iPhone and iPad sales,” said Jobs. “We are firing on all cylinders and we’ve got some exciting things in the pipeline for this year including iPhone 4 on Verizon which customers can’t wait to get their hands on.”

Yesterday Apple announced that CEO Steve Jobs is taking another medical leave of absence to focus on his health.
