Apple may not be selling as many iPads as it did with its older versions, but its important to note that in the last three months, they did make a lot of money.

Apple's first quarter of 2012 saw $39.2 billion in revenue and a net profit of $11.6 billion on sales of 35.1 million iPhones and 11.8 million iPads. Macs sales were up slightly and iPod sales tumbled.
