Apple released its earnings report for the first fiscal quarter of 2013. Although it isn’t as impressive as we thought it would be, there was an increase in sales of iPhones and iPads. Sales for Macs and iPods, however, went down compared to the quarter a year earlier.

During this quarter, the company achieved a record quarterly revenue of USD $54.5 billion and a record quarterly net profit of USD $13.1 billion during this quarter. These figures are a considerable increase compared to the $46.3 billion revenue and $13.1 billion net profit a year earlier. Apple states that international sales accounted for 61% of the quarter’s revenue.

According to Apple CEO Tim Cook, more than 75 million iOS devices were sold in fiscal Q1.The company saw more iPhone sales than the year-ago quarter, having sold 47.8 million units. Meanwhile, iPads were reported to hit record sales of 22.9 million units.

“We established new all-time quarterly records for iPhone and iPad sales, significantly broadened our ecosystem, and generated Apple’s highest quarterly revenue ever,” said Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer.

There was, however, a decrease in the purchase of Macs (from 5.2 million a year earlier to only 4.1 million units this quarter) and iPods (from 15.4 million during the year-earlier quarter to only 12.7 million iPods).

Mashable reports that Apple also had a 60% increase in the sales of Apple TVs as the company was able to sell 2 million units. The same source reports that 4 trillion notifications and 450 billion iMessages were sent in the quarter.
