How Much Money Does Apple Make?

An infographic by MacGateway.

In the second fiscal quarter of 2012, Apple earned $39.2 billion in revenue.

That’s about…

  • $436 million per day
  • $18 million per hour
  • $302,000 per minute
  • $5,000 per second

Apple earned more than $108 billion in fiscal year 2011.

That’s about $15.65 for each of the world’s 6.9 billion people.

Apple has sold 218.245 million iPhones since its introduction in 2007.

Placed end to end, that’s enough to stretch from Cupertino to Tokyo — three times.

Although Apple’s share of the mobile phone market is only about 4%, Apple earns more than 50% of the mobile phone industry’s total profits.

Apple went public on December 12, 1980 at a split-adjusted price of $2.75 per share.

$1,000 invested on that day would have been worth $231,356 on April 9, 2012.
