Apple sold 5.2 million iPhones last quarter


Haters be damned: like it or not, the iPhone just won’t stop selling. This quarter’s results, boosted by the release of the iPhone 3GS, absolutely demolished results of quarter’s past (well, except for Q4 of last year). Fresh off today’s Apple’s earnings call for the third fiscal quarter of 2009: Apple pushed 5.2 million iPhones between April 1st and June 30th, 2009. That’s a 626 percent growth from fiscal quarter 3 of last year (during which 717,000 units were sold), and a significant burst from last quarter’s 3.7 million units.

Apple sold 2.6 million Macintosh® computers during the quarter, representing a four percent unit increase over the year-ago quarter. The Company sold 10.2 million iPods during the quarter, representing a seven percent unit decline from the year-ago quarter. Quarterly iPhones sold were 5.2 million, representing 626 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter.

“We’re making our most innovative products ever and our customers are responding,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We’re thrilled to have sold over 5.2 million iPhones during the quarter and users have downloaded more than 1.5 billion applications from our App Store in its first year.”
