Another positive in the sense that iPhone figures are on the up, but....
4. Apple sold around 10% fewer iPhones than analysts expected

Mac was product with the biggest growth, selling 4.8m in total thanks to contributions from the likes of the Macbook Air.
6. iPod sales down by 52%

7. International sales accounted for 63% of Q1 revenue
The all-American brand still has a large majority of their sales rooted on home soil.
8. Apple shares will receive $3.05 cash dividend
