It feels like we’ve been a little harsh on Apple lately, talking about the company losing its “cool”, focusing on gaffs like the Apple Maps fiasco, and watching Android rise to global dominance. In spite of all that, iOS products continue to sell like gangbusters, especially in the company’s native US. Now Apple’s financial info for the last quarter is out, and the numbers are pretty darn impressive, breaking several of the company’s own records, even if falling short of some expectations.

Quarterly revenue rose to $54.5 billion, compared with $46.3 billion over the same period in 2011. That income came in part from the sales of 47.8 million iPhones and 22.9 million iPads, both serious improvements over 2011 numbers.

As shouldn’t surprise us, the US remains Apple’s largest customer base, though international sales did manage to account for 61 percent of its quarterly revenue, to the tune of $33 billion.

With the holidays now over, sales are expected to slump a bit, but Apple’ still looking forward to around $42 billion in revenue over the course of this present quarter. If you’re interested in getting all the details on Apple’s performance, the live webcast of its conference call is just kicking-off now: check it out.
