Apple logoHere’s a summary of some of the highlights from Apple’s Q3 2009 results, announced yesterday. Note that Apple’s fiscal year does not follow the calendar year, their fiscal year ends in September so their third quarter results are more like second quarter

  • Apple call it their “Best Non-Holiday Quarter in Apple History”
  • Apple turned over 8.34 billion dollars. Slightly better than expected and a lot better than third quarter last year (7.46 billion dollars).
  • Apple came out of Q3 with a 1.23 billion dollar profit against 1.07 billion dollars last year.
  • Apple sold 2.6 million Mac computers. That’s a 4% increase compared to the same quarter last year.
  • iPod sales went down 7% compared to last year, selling 10.2 million iPods this quarter.
  • iPhone sales went up, a total of 5.2 million units were shipped, a “minor” increase of 626% (!) compared to same quarter last year.
  • 44% of all sales came from outside the United States.
  • Apple now has 258 physical Apple Stores of which 254 were open throughout the third quarter. Each Apple Store turned over 5.9 million dollars on average and a total of 667,000 personal training sessions were conducted in all Apple Stores.
  • Apple sold 12% more in their physical Apple Stores but profits only increased by 2%. Probably because people are buying cheaper models with less profit margin for Apple.
  • iTunes Store now has more than 8 billion music downloads.
  • Apple now has 31.1 billion dollars in their money bin.
