The infographic comes from David Sawers of Last year, Apple broke its own earning records going from $108 billion in net sales in 2011 to over $156 billion in 2012. Where did the company put the money?

In 2011, more of the operating costs went towards R&D, with a smaller percentage going to selling, general and administrative costs. However, by 2012 those figures had flipped. They also spent 94% more in 2012 than 2011 on data centers.
