MacRumors will provide running coverage of the earnings release and conference call.

The release will provide an early look into iPhone 5s and 5c sales across their first weeks of availability, as well as updates on the new products announced at WWDC. Apple's stock price is down some 8.3 percent year-to-date and roughly $180/share off its highs of last year. Analysts have continuing concerns about Apple's ability to innovate without Steve Jobs, though the current price is up quite a bit from the previous earnings call.

In its third-quarter earnings call, Apple guided expected revenue of $34-37 billion and gross margin between 36 and 37 percent for the fourth quarter. If Apple makes the low revenue number, it will have generated more than $167 billion in earnings for the 2013 fiscal year, a rise of more than $10 billion from 2012.

The "Apple is doomed" comments are starting to get as stale as "Safari seems snappier." Stop it.
