Apple had a pretty good Christmas, selling tens of millions of its portable iOS devices and generating billions in revenue. In the three-month period that included the holiday shopping season, Apple sold 47.8 million iPhones, 22.9 million iPads, 4.1 million Macs and more than 2 million Apple TVs. During the same period last year, Apple sold 37 million iPhones, 15.4 million iPads, 5.2 million Macs and approximately 1.2 million Apple TVs.
Those device sales generated a profit of $13.1 billion during the three month period. Apple now has an estimated war chest of $137.1 billion.
Apple previously reported that more than 40 billion apps had been downloaded to-date, and that more than $7 billion had been paid out to developers.
