Apple's Q2 2015 might not reach the world record of the previous quarter, but it still has another record for the iPhone maker-- net quarterly profit of $13.6 billion on $58bn revenue, with gross margin of 40.8%.
In other words, Apple still manage to outdo all expectations, particularly as international sales continue driving results by accounting for 69% of revenues. For the record, Wall Street was expecting revenues reaching around $56.06bn, while Apple itself was hoping for revenues between $52 and $55bn.
“We are thrilled by the continued strength of iPhone, Mac and the App Store, which drove our best March quarter results ever,” CEO Tim Cook says. “We’re seeing a higher rate of people switching to iPhone than we’ve experienced in previous cycles, and we’re off to an exciting start to the June quarter with the launch of Apple Watch.”
