Today, Apple reported its second quarter 2013 results -- beating its guidance, as is typical for the company, and posting revenues of $43.6 billion for the quarter.

The company reports that in its fiscal 2013's second quarter, it sold 37.4 million iPhones, as compared to 35.1 million in the same quarter a year ago; it also sold just under 4 million Macs, compared to 4 million previously.

However, the big news for video game creators is the big jump in iPad sales: 19.5 million, as compared to 11.8 million a year previous. Of course, a year ago, the iPad Mini didn't exist -- and as reported by MacRumors, Apple said in its results call that many first-time iPad purchasers have opted for the Mini, boosting the platform's overall popularity.

These numbers helped push the company to quarterly revenue of $43.6 billion and quarterly net profit of $9.5 billion.
