Apple announced its financial results for Q4 of the fiscal 2014. The Cupertino giant took home a quarterly net profit of $8.5 billion or $1.42 per diluted share from $42.1 billion of revenue. Its gross margin for the quarter is 38%.
The above result is an improvement over the $7.5 billion of net profit from $37.5 billion of revenue for the same quarter last year. Gross margin for last year’s quarter was 37%.
Unsurprisingly iPhone sales were the main driving force behind the stellar financial performance. Apple moved 39.2 million smartphones - up from 33.8 million for the same quarter last year.
Mac sales impressed too. An impressive 5.52 million computers were srecent - way up from the expected $4.9 million.
Sales of Apple iPad however, weren’t so impressive. Cupertino srecent 12.3 million slates - down the projected 13.1 million. Apple srecent 14.1 million tablets in the same quarter last year.
Apple’s guidance of the next fiscal quarter is expectedly optimistic. The manufacturer expects revenue in the range of $63.5 and $66.5 billion and gross margin between 37.5% and 38.5%.
The above guidance should hardly catch anyone by surprise, as next quarter is going to include the holiday shopping season. It will also imprint a full fiscal period of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus retail availability. The recent iPad Air 2 will also likely assist Apple’s cause.
