Apple retail rises 59 percent over Q1 2011

Coming alongside the formal announcement, Apple has published a detailed breakdown of its Q1 2012 financial results. The Americas and Japan saw the biggest regional surges in revenue, with the former up 92 percent year-over-year to $17.714 billion, and Japan up 148 percent to $3.55 billion. Europe was up 55 percent to $11.256 billion, while the Asia-Pacific region rose 54 percent to $7.697 billion, helped partly by a 58 percent surge in Mac sales to 814,000. Worldwide retail revenue grew 59 percent to sit at $6.116 billion.

In terms of products, MacBook sales continued to dominate desktop sales, with the former rising 28 percent to $4.662 billion, and desktops growing 21 percent, but just to $1.936 billion. iPod revenues fell 26 percent to $2.528 billion, but were more than compensated for by the iPhone and iPad, which rocketed 133 percent and 99 percent to $24.417 billion and $9.153 billion, respectively.

Music-related products and services, such as the iTunes Store, increased 42 percent to $2.027 billion. Peripherals and miscellaneous hardware grew 29 percent to $766 million, while software, service and other sales inched ahead 7 percent to $844 million.
