Apple to Release Q4 2008 Financial Results on October 21st
Apple has posted a media alert announcing details for the October 21st release of their financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2008. The results will cover sales from June 29th through September 27th, and will be released at the close of trading (4:00 PM Eastern / 1:00 PM Pacific) on Tuesday. Apple's conference call discussing the results will follow at 2:00 PM Pacific and will be available via a live audio webcast.
Apple's most significant release of the quarter was the iPhone 3G and the associated App Store in early July, with the iPod lineup also seeing a refresh near the end of the quarter. No new Macs were released during the quarter, but recent data from research firms Gartner and IDC suggest that quarterly U.S. Mac shipments are still growing ~30% year-over-year, well ahead of the pace set by the PC industry as a whole.
