How powerful is Apple becoming in the tech industry? Well, take a look at the impressive quarter that the iPhone and iPad maker just reported, posting quarterly revenue of $46.33 billion. That’s the biggest quarterly revenue haul ever by a technology company.
We wanted to put the number in a bit of perspective, so we took a look at the quarterly reports of some other tech titans.
Apple’s performance is just plain staggering.
The $46.3 billion in revenue equals the combined quarterly revenue of one Microsoft ($20.89 billon); two Googles ($10.5 billion); and three Yahoos ($1.17 billion).
Apple’s net income wasn’t too shabby either. Farhad Manjoo noted on Twitter that Apple’s $13 billion in profit was more than Google’s entire revenue for the past quarter.
And just to put that profit number in some more perspective, it’s nearly twice the net income that Microsoft just posted during its most recent quarter.
Is there any stopping Apple?
