Apple’s smartphone business ( iPhones)  formed  nearly  77 percent of the operating profits from the smartphone industry in the Q2,2012.
Apple only contributed to 6 percent of the industry's smartphones and tablets that were shipped last quarter and it was also supposed to be a slow quarter for Apple due to the iPhone sales being lower than usual. In comparison, Samsung shipped nearly twice as many devices in the same quarter.

Apart from being the  the most profitable company in the world, Apple  now owns the world’s largest hedge fund as well. Zero Hedge reports that Braeburn Capital, a Nevada-based asset management corporation that Apple founded specifically to manage its cash, now has more than $117 billion in assets under management.
