Apple announced that it will announce the company’s 2012 first-quarter financial results on Tuesday, Jan. 24. The call will cover financial information from the past quarter, a quarter in which we saw the the release of the widely popular iPhone 4S in addition to Apple’s new softwares iCloud and iOS 5. Breakthrough information in regards to Apple’s future product plans rarely slips out, but the results should still be interesting.

As per past calls, the announcement will begin at 2 p.m. Pacific / 5 p.m. Eastern time. Anyone can listen into the call through Apple’s investor website, but Quicktime player is required. Apple will post a press release that details their Q1 2012 financial results and will also likely —as they typically do— hold a question-and-answer session with company executives. We will provide live coverage of the proceedings.

Apple is rumored to be holding a late January media event to discuss advancements to its iBooks platform. Apple, in the past, has held events either close before or close after conference calls, so do not be surprised to see Apple’s event happen around Jan. 24.
