Record quarterly results from Apple have helped allay fears surrounding the company's future after CEO Steve Jobs (pictured) was forced to take medical leave. Apple reported a 71 percent jump in first-quarter revenue, to US$26.74 billion, and a 78 percent surge in net profit, to US$6 billion.
International sales accounted for 62 percent of the quarter’s revenue. The company sold 16.24 million iPhones in the quarter, representing 86 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter, while 7.33 million iPads fell into the hands of consumers during the quarter.
