Apple makes profits worth over $40 billion in one year

200 million iOS devices sold.

Posted By | On 26th, Oct. 2012

Apple has had a very successful year- to say the least- and have garnered a pot full of money- $121.3 billion (£75 billion), to be more precise.

Apple made profits of $41.7 billion over the year, managing to sell an astounding 200 million iOS based devices. 58 million of those were iPads, a gargantuan 125 million were iPhones, while Apple TVs sold a relatively meagre 5 million units.

In the third quarter of 2012 (July, August and September), Apple made a profit of $6.6 billion. In that time period, they sold 26.9 million iPhones, 14 million iPads, 5.3 million iPods, and 4.9 million Macs.

GamesIndustry International notes that Apple would still have $70 billion left in their pockets if they went ahead and bought all- EA, Activision, Take Two, Nintendo, THQ, Sony and GameStop. They could even bid for Microsoft’s Entertainment and Devices division (the Xbox division) which costs $49 billion and still have money to spare (much more than just “spare” money, actually.”

When Apple boss Tim Cook was asked about Microsoft’s Surface, the new direct competitor to Apple’s iPad, he said, “Surface is a fairly compromised, confusing product.”
