apple’s q4 report shows increased revenues

Apple has released its earnings report for the fourth quarter ending on September 30. Overall revenue reached $62.9 billion, marking a 20 percent boost from the year-ago quarter, and quarterly earnings per diluted share amounted to $2.41, marking a 41 percent increase. International sales played a big role in this success story, as they were responsible for 61 percent of Apple’s revenue. This was a led by a 34 percent increase in revenue from Japan and by a 22 percent increase from the rest of east Asia. While there was plenty of good news, Apple stock fell by 7.3 percent in after-hours trading. That was enough to bring it below its famous $1 trillion valuation, particularly if it stays that way through the night. Part of the reason for the stock slide…

why apple loves china but hates sales figures

It’s another record quarter as a part of a record fiscal year for Apple. The revenue was nearly $63 billion, the profit more than $14 billion, and for the year Apple generated $265 billion in revenue and nearly $60 billion in profit. It’s the company’s eighth straight quarter of revenue growth, and that growth has accelerated every one of those quarters. This is a healthy company; you couldn’t find a healthier one if you tried. Yes, Apple’s stock is getting hit because its guidance – the amount of money it expects to make during the current quarter – is actually slightly below what Wall Street analysts were expecting. For the record, the revenue Apple has guided to – between $89 and $93 billion – would be the most revenue Apple has…

macbook air

£1,199 from Apple says the MacBook Air is “the most beloved notebook ever”, and it’s not wrong. The huge success of the original Air had ripple effects throughout the industry, but it has languished in recent years. For the past three years or so, Apple had kept up with neither technological nor design advances in its most important laptop. Now, the MacBook Air has finally been brought up to modern Mac laptop standards, skipping forward three generations of Intel processors, adding a Retina display and Thunderbolt 3 ports, and giving us three colour options, among other things. But it feels a bit like Apple threw out the baby with the bath water, jettisoning some features of the MacBook Air that make it so well-loved. In fact, it would be more accurate to…

mac mini

£799 from It’s been ages since the Mac mini received an update, so we can see how fans of Apple’s smallest Mac would be happy for any improvements. On the flip side, because the mini hasn’t been updated for four long years, you may have convinced yourself that Apple would make dramatic changes – yet the update is pretty much limited to a processor upgrade. If you were anticipating a major overhaul, your disappointment is understandable. But get over it, because the new Mac mini is a worthy Mac for £799. In fact, in our benchmarks, its performance is fast enough to give the iMac some competition. If you’re buying a new Mac, you should definitely consider the mini, because you could end up saving some money – and still get…

iphone xr

£749 from Like me, the vast majority of people coming to the iPhone XR will be leaving the home button behind. This time last year I didn’t feel ready to go full-screen at the expense of trusty Touch ID, despite the promise of Animoji, face recognition and selfie portraits. It seemed like giving up the home button would be too big a change, requiring me to learn new gestures and place my trust in a new security system. So what has changed this time round? Well, for one, Apple has taken the choice away. If you want a new iPhone then you have to accept Face ID. With only the XS, XS Max and iPhone XR to choose from, it’s RIP Home Button. For those hoping that Apple might decided to…
