For its first quarterly earnings for 2014, Apple reported that it sold 51 million iPhones and 26 million iPads. That’s more iPads than many analysts were expecting, but a few million short when it comes to iPhone sales estimates.
Apple reported $13.1 billion in profit on revenues of $57.6 billion — the same profit as it saw last year, but slightly higher than that quarter’s $54.5 billion in revenue.
For this quarter, which covered the last holiday season, analysts have been paying particular attention to iPad sales. Last year Apple saw its iPad sales fall for three consecutive quarters, as competing Android tablets gained steam. This time around, with the new Retina iPad Mini and ultralight Apple Air sharing the spotlight, analysts expected iPad sales of around 24.8 million, according to a compilation of predictions by Fortune’s Philip Elmer-Dewitt.
Last quarter was also the first time Apple had two new iPhone models for the holidays. Analysts expected Apple to sell around 54.8 million iPhones during the quarter.
