Apple has just announced that it will be posting its Q3 2013 financial results on Tuesday, July 23. The Cupertino-based company, headed by CEO Tim Cook, will hold a conference call to discuss its earnings during its recently concluded third fiscal quarter. As noted in Apple’s Investor Relations webpage, the conference call will take place at 2 p.m. PST / 5 p.m. EST. It will be accessible via audio streaming on the Apple Events webpage. If you have an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad running iOS 4.2 or above, any Mac running OS X 10.5 or above, or any PC running Quicktime 7 or later, you’ll be able to listen to the call live on your device. Prior to the call, Apple will issue a press release detailing its financial results. For the second fiscal quarter of 2013, which ended on March 30, Apple reported that it earned $43.6 billion in revenue and posted a net profit of $9.5 billion. It also announced that it managed to sell more than 19.5 million iPads, more than 37.4 million iPhones, and and just under 4 million Macs during the quarter. For the just-ended third fiscal quarter, Apple predicted revenue between $33.5 billion and $35.5 billion. We'll see, three weeks from now, if the company was able to meet, or even surpass, its prediction.
