According to foreign media reports, Apple's submission to the US Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") this week showed that Apple's research and development expenses in the second quarter increased by 278 million US dollars over the same period of the previous year, an increase of 33%.

In the first six months of fiscal 2013, Apple's research and development budget increased by 530 million US dollars over the same period of the previous year, an increase of 33%. According to the current development trend, Apple's R&D expenses in FY13 will increase by US$1 billion from FY2012.

In the materials submitted to the SEC, Apple said that the increase in research and development costs was due to “the number of people and the increase in costs associated with supporting more research and development activities”. Apple said that the increase in research and development costs is "important for the company's future growth" and said it will continue to add research and development investment.

According to current trends, Apple's R&D expenses in fiscal 2013 will exceed $4 billion. Apple's R&D expenses in fiscal 2012 were $3.4 billion. In the past few years, Apple has been increasing R&D expenses. In FY2012, R&D expenses increased by 953 million US dollars, an increase of 39%.

Although Apple's R&D expenses are not low, it is still only a fraction of its huge cash reserves. As of the end of the second quarter, Apple's cash reserves reached $145 billion, and plans to repay $100 billion to shareholders by repurchasing shares and dividends by the end of 2015.

Of course, the promotion of Apple's profits is the development of new products, which is why the outside world is curious about Apple's new products. Since the launch of the iPad mini at the end of October last year, Apple has not yet launched an important product.
