Apple Is Doing Rather Well, Thank YouApple wants you to know it’s doing rather well financially, thanks for asking. In this case, “rather well” means making the most profit in a quarter of all time. And not just for Apple either, but out of every single company that exists in the world.
Apple broke the record by making an eye-watering $18.04 billion in profit in the first fiscal quarter of 2015. If that number is too big for you to get your head around, it breaks down as $8.3 million every hour, 24 hours a day, for three months straight.
The good news doesn’t stop there either. Apple boasted of selling 74 million iPhones during the quarter, thanks to the launch of the iPhone 6 and (bendy) iPhone 6 Plus. The company also announced it sold its 1 billionth iDevice in November, which is another mind-blowing factoid.
Last but not least in terms of Apple news is Tim Cook stating that “development for Apple Watch is right on schedule.” If the company’s previous release schedule is to be believed, this means the Apple Watch will start shipping in April. No doubt adding more profits to the pile.
