Apple sold a stunning 37 million iPhones last quarter, twice what it sold in the same period a year ago. IPad sales doubled to a record 15.4 million. Apple also moved 5 million Macs and 15 million iPods during the holiday quarter, which ended Dec. 31.
Apple’s stellar quarter generated sales of $46.3 billion in sales, the best quarterly sales for any technology company in history. That’s up 73% from a year ago, and it easily topped Wall Street analysts’ $38.9 billion median forecast, according to a Thomson Reuters poll.
