There were very few low points in the results. The only one we could find was that iPod sales slipped back. Although at a very healthy 19.5 million for the Christmas quarter, this is at its lowest Christmas figure since 2006.

Apple retail store sales continue to grow, now at $3.85 billion., doubling in the space of one year, from $1.97 in Q1 2010. Apple’s revenue from the iTunes store also reached $1.1 billion for the quarter.
