The second half of today's earnings one-two punch is in, as Apple just revealed its report for the third quarter its fiscal 2013. Diving right into the numbers, Apple says that it sold 31.2 million iPhones during its fiscal Q3 2013. That's an increase from the 26 million iPhones it sold in Q3 2012 and is also a record for Apple's June quarter. 

Apple also says that it moved 14.6 million iPads in Q3 2013, a drop from the 17 million it sold in the year-ago quarter. Finally, Apple reports that it sold 4.6 million iPods in the quarter, while Mac sales finished at 3.8 million in Q3 2013.

Looking at the financial numbers, Apple's Q3 2013 resulted in in $35.3 billion in revenue, operating expenses of $3.8 billion, and a net profit of $6.9 billion. Apple expects its fiscal Q4 2013 to bring in revenue between $34 billion and $37 billion and its operating expenses to come in between $3.9 billion and $3.95 billion.

Apple CEO Tim Cook also took the opportunity to tease his company's future plans. The exec said that his company is "laser-focused and working hard on some amazing new products" that it plans to introduce in the fall and "across 2014." Once again, there are no teases or hints as to what Apple has planned, but the rumor mill has suggested that we could see the iPhone 5S, a new low-cost iPhone, and possibly a refreshed iPad with an iPad mini-like design later this year. To help pass the time while we wait to see if those reports pan out, I'll be listening in on Apple's Q3 2013 earnings call and will report back with any juicy tidbits that are shared.

UPDATE: Apple revealed during its earnings call that there are now over 320 million iCloud accounts and 240 million Game Center accounts, adding that its users have sent over 900 billion iMessages and received 8 trillion push notifications.
