Apple posts best second quarter ever with revenues of $61 billion

Tech behemoth Apple posted its best Q2 ever with revenues up 16 per cent year-on-year to $61.1 billion.

International sales accounted for 65 per cent of the company’s revenue for the three months ending March 31st, with sales in China and Japan also growing by over 20 per cent. Q2 profits meanwhile came in at $13.8 billion.

The company sold 52.2 million iPhones and 9.1 million iPads during the quarter.

On the March

“We’re thrilled to report our best March quarter ever, with strong revenue growth in iPhone, Services and Wearables,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook.

“Customers chose iPhone X more than any other iPhone each week in the March quarter, just as they did following its launch in the December quarter. We also grew revenue in all of our geographic segments, with over 20 per cent growth in Greater China and Japan.”

Strength in iPhone sales also led Apple to its all-time quarterly revenue record in Q1 FY18. The company posted revenues of $88.3 billion for that quarter, which was up 13% year-on-year, and shipped over 77 million units.
