Apple’s Earnings for Q4 out: Highest revenue and earnings ever with iPods, iPhones, iPads and Macs raining green!

October 19, 2010, By Shawn Wagnon

The earnings of Apple for 2010 fiscal fourth quarter are here and once again Apple has set a new benchmark in roping in the cash. The unprecedented success though is no surprise to anyone who has seen them sell all those iPhones, iPods, Macs and even iPads with ease. Here is a list of Apple’s accomplishments in the 2010 Q4:

Apple Sales in Q4 2010:

3.89 million Macs – 27% more than in Q4 2009
14.1 million iPhones – 91% more than in Q4 2009
9.05 million iPods – 11% less than in Q4 2009
4.19 million iPads

Overall numbers for Q4 2010:

$20.34 billion – total revenue
$4.31 billion – net quarterly profit or $4.64 per diluted share
36.9 percent – gross margin
57 percent of revenue – International sales

As the numbers illustrate, it was the sales of iPhones and iPads that did the trick for apple, while the iPod numbers actually dropped from 2009. One guesses, people are just going for the iPhone instead of buying an iPod for their music needs… Maybe. Apple expects their $20.34 billion revenue for Q4 of 2010 to go up to a $23 billion mark by 2011 Q1.

What is interesting to note is Steve Jobs’ statement that they still have a surprise up their sleeve this year. With the numbers surely having everyone at Apple all buoyed up, what could the surprise be?
