Apple's Huge Beat: Live Blog Recap

CUPERTINO, Calif. ( TheStreet) -- Apple (AAPL - Get Report) reported its fiscal first-quarter numbers after market close on Tuesday, blasting past analysts' estimates thanks to massive holiday season gadget sales.

The tech giant reported earnings of $13.06 billion, or $13.87 a share, on revenue of $46.33 billion. Analysts were looking for profit of $10.15 per share on just over $39 billion in revenue in the period. International sales accounted for 58% of the company's quarterly revenue.

"We're thrilled with our outstanding results and record-breaking sales of iPhones, iPads and Macs," explained Tim Cook, Apple's CEO, in a statement released after market close. "Apple's momentum is incredibly strong, and we have some amazing new products in the pipeline."

Apple sold 37.04 million iPhones in the quarter, a 128% hike on the prior year's quarter, and 15.43 million iPads, an increase of 111% on the same period last year. During the first quarter, Apple sold 5.2 million Macs, a 26% year-over-year increase.
