Apple will release its Q4 FY12 earnings release on October 25, when the company will hold a conference call to discuss the financial results of its fourth fiscal quarter. It falls on a Thursday, and the call will take place at 2:00 p.m. PT / 5:00 p.m. ET.

The company has updated its Investor Relations page announcing the news.

The earnings report should will reportedly include the first weeks of iPhone 5 availability. Anticipation of the device actually caused iPhone sales to slow in the previous quarter.

Apple announced on September 24 that it sold over 5 million iPhone 5s in the first weekend of availability. Since the initial launch in 9 countries, the device has launched in 22 more.

Initial demand for the device exceeded the company’s initial supply, causing a shipping delay for some customers.

“Demand for iPhone 5 has been incredible and we are working hard to get an iPhone 5 into the hands of every customer who wants one as quickly as possible,” said CEO Tim Cook in a ]statement at the time.

A live audio stream of the conference call will be provided here. To listen, you’ll need an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 4.2 or above, any Mac running OS X 10.5 or above or any PC running QuickTime 7 or later.

We’ll have coverage of the earnings when the day comes.
