Apple Earnings Soar on iPhone, Mac Strength

Apple earnings, the Mac and the iPhone
Apple's done it again: The maker of the iPhone, iPad, iPod and the Mac trounced Wall Street estimates on blockbuster sales not just of its mobile products but of its venerable Mac line.

The numbers show sizable increases in sales for almost every one of Apple's major products while also offering some evidence that despite booming sales, the iPad hasn't really put a damper on the Mac.

Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) once again exceeded all analyst projections to report record sales and earnings on the strength of all of its products except the iPod.

For its third fiscal quarter ended June 26, Apple reported revenue of $15.7 billion and net income of $3.25 billion, or $3.51 per diluted share. The numbers flattened a consensus estimate by analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters, who had projected per-share earnings of $3.11 on revenue of $14.75 billion.
