Apple’s iTunes Store, as it nears its upcoming 10th anniversary this April 28, made a new record, raking in revenues to the tune of $4.1 billion in the second quarter of 2013.
A report featured by Engadget also notes that Apple posted $9.5 billion in net profit during the same quarter, selling 37.4 million iPhone units and 19.5 million iPads also within the reported timeframe.
Based on the same report, Apple is noted to have raked in a $43.6 billion revenue figure during the second quarter of 2013, leading to the posted $9.5 billion the company has posted as its overall profit figure.
Though the recent figures posted by Apple shows a decline in comparison with last year’s collated stats, the figures are not exactly as low as how industry experts and analysts had forecasted.
To be sure though, the figures do still represent the lowest rate of growth to be seen in Apple’s expected performance stats, but it is widely argued that all brands and manufacturers, not just Apple, is experiencing a decline of projections and expectations.
Compared to last year, the Cupertino-based brand had sold 22.9 million iPads in the second quarter, just as it has sold 47.8 million iPhone handsets during the same time.
A separate report in terms of mobile unit sales by DRAMeXchange somewhat echoes the noted sales figures of Apple’s iDevices, though it has to be noted that the said stats talk about the 1st quarter of 2013’s sales performances.
Either way, it appears that there’s an ongoing decline in the sale of gadgets and gizmos, but one that is not altogether as “dire” as how poor PC sales have been.
