Apple has released its fiscal Q2 results today, which include sales figures for both the iPhone and the iPad, and the figures are unexpectedly big.
Over the March quarter, the Cupertino-based company posted $39.2 billion in revenue with a net profit of $11.6 billion. Those figures are way up from the same quarter a year ago where the company posted $24.7 billion in revenue and $6.0 billion netprofit.
The driving force behind the company’s success has been its two flagship devices, the iPhone and iPad.
During the quarter, the company sold over 35 million iPhones, 35.1 million to be specific, and it also sold 11.8 million iPads. The iPhones sold in the quarter represent an 88 percent increase over the amount sold in the same quarter in 2011 while the iPad figure absolutely blew last year’s tally out of the water.

As for the iPad, the company announced that it had sold three million third-generation iPads in the first three days of its launch.
