In just one day Apple’s new Mac Operating System, Lion, has been downloaded over Million Times! That’s over $30,000,000 in revenue. This pretty much shows how much of a success Lion is for Apple. It has been the Top Paid Download in since yesterday morning, and I think it will stay there for at least another week.

Even the ratings and reviews show how much customers are loving Lion. The average rating is just under 5 stars. These ratings are for July 22.

The thing that I think that is really pushing sales is the Price. I mean at on only $30 most people wouldn’t think twice about buying it. But I think there is a also one thing that is stopping it from becoming even more successful. It’s only available through the Mac App Store. If there was an option that people could buy a DVD online or at the Apple Store,  sales could’ve been higher. Buy anyway this is still a great feat for Apple.

If you are still on Snow Leopard and haven’t downloaded Lion yet, I recommend you download immediately. It’s an investment you won’t regret.

Today Apple released financial information about their fiscal third quarter with a record for iPhone and iPad sales. Apple announced sales of $28.57 Billion and a Net Profit of $7.31 Billion. This was a around 3-4Billion more than what analysts had predicted. The Quarterly Earnings Call results were announced by Tim Cook and Peter Oppenheimer.

Apple Sold 20.34 Million iPhones that’s record high, even without Apple releasing a new phone in a year. Analysts think that it’s the Verizon (CDMA) iPhone and the White iPhone that are really driving sales. 9.25 Million iPads were sold, that’s a record for the iPad as well.

Unfortunately Apple sold only 3.95 Million Mac’s this quarter. So Mac sales were down. But there was a 59% growth in Mac ales in the Asia-Pacific Are. iPod sales were also down with only 7.54 Million iPods sold.

Apple additionally announced that Mac OS X 10.8 Lion will release tomorrow, July 19, in the Mac App Store. No information was given on time of release.

Overall this was a great Fiscal Quarter for Apple. Hopefully in the next Fiscal Quarter Mac and iPod sales will be higher.
