It was an insanely lucrative fiscal first quarter for Apple, even by its own increasingly ridiculously lofty standards. Apple on Monday reported first-quarter revenue of $46.33 billion, a 73 percent increase from last year's first quarter, and net income of $13.06 billion, or $13.87 per share, a 118 percent jump year-over-year.
Apple's first quarter was chock-full of eye-popping stats: The company sold more than 52 million iOS devices -- some 37 million iPhones and 15.4 million iPads -- and pulled in a quarterly profit of more than $13 billion.
Even Mac sales rose 26 percent, no mean feat considering the overall PC market sluggishness. Apple's iCloud, which launched three months ago, already has hit the 85-million-user mark.
