"We’re continuing to press forward in our work to infuse everything we make with the values that define us - by inspiring a new generation of developers to learn to code, moving closer to our 2030 environment goal, and engaging in the urgent work of building a more equitable future."
Apple’s chief financial officer Luca Maestri added: "Our record June quarter operating performance included new revenue records in each of our geographic segments, double-digit growth in each of our product categories, and a new all-time high for our installed base of active devices.
