Apple plans to conduct a conference call to discuss financial results of its fourth fiscal quarter on Tuesday, October 21, 2008 at 2:00 p.m. PDT.
Arguably the biggest piece of information announced in todayâ€™s 4th quarter earnings conference call was Appleâ€™s iPhone sales. Apple has explained that in this past quarter 6.9 million iPhone 3Gâ€™s were sold. This exceeds all previous iPhone quarters (sales) combined.
Additionally, â€œApple has posted revenue of $7.9 billion and net quarterly profit of $1.14 billion, or $1.26 per diluted share. These results compare to revenue of $6.22 billion and net quarterly profit of $904 million, or $1.01 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin was 34.7 percent, up from 33.6 percent in the year-ago quarter. International sales accounted for 41 percent of the quarterâ€™s revenue.â€
