As legally obliged, Apple has released its quarterly report (SEC Form 10-Q) with the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

The extensive account as usual provides a little extra insight into the company's activities in the just-gone March quarter. Apple saw revenues rise 70 per cent and net income climb over 500 per cent in the quarter.

Announcing the results on April 13, Apple CEO Steve Jobs said: “Apple is firing on all cylinders and we have some incredible new products in the pipeline for the coming year."

The 10-Q confirms the trend, adding that sales in the first six months of the 2005 financial year were up 72 per cent, year-on-year. Sales seem to be climbing in every one of Apple's product categories, the report confirms.
