Apple reported earnings of $1.68 per share, up 34.4% from the same period last year and well ahead of the Street consensus forecast of $1.41. Group revenues, Apple said, rose 21% from last year to a record $111.44 billion, again topping analysts' estimates of a $103.3 billion tally.
“This quarter for Apple wouldn’t have been possible without the tireless and innovative work of every Apple team member worldwide,” said CEO Tim Cook. “We’re gratified by the enthusiastic customer response to the unmatched line of cutting-edge products that we delivered across a historic holiday season."
