Another positive in the sense that iPhone figures are on the up, but....

4. Apple sold around 10% fewer iPhones than analysts expected
According to Quartz's Christopher Mims, this is a bad omen for the "iPhone company".

5. Mac computers product line growth up 19%
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%
Half the amount of iPods were sold as more people use their smartphones and tablets for music, is Apple's flagship MP3 player becoming redundant?

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
Those who invested in Apple's common stock will receive the sum on 13 February 2014.
