Apple (AAPL) beat earnings expectations, although the story is really about what's coming next. AAPL's earnings came in at $1.28 per share compared to the $1.23 expected. Revenues came in slightly lower than projected at $37.4 billion versus $38 billion. Profit growth was fueled by the sale of 35.2 million iPhones. The growth was most noticeable in BRIC countries, where sales climbed by 55%. Meanwhile, iPad sales dropped 9% year-over-year as global tablet demand seems to be fading. However, ultimately this quarter just doesn't mean that much. Investors are laser-focused on what Apple will be bring to the table next, including the iPhone 6 and the iWatch. The next iPhone will likely come in two versions - one with the largest screen yet. Plus, the iWatch could finally push wearables to the forefront. Bottom line, next quarter will be bigger.
