Apple’s full-year revenues near a quarter of a trillion dollars

iPhone and iPad creator Apple has just enjoyed its most successful ever year.

The company reported full-year revenues of $234bn for the 12 months ending September 26th. Q4 revenues reached $51.5bn, up on the previous year's $42.1bn. Profit climbed from $.8.5bn to $11.1bn

Apple thanked strong iPhone sales (up 22 per cent year-on-year) increased availability of the Apple Watch and record Mac sales. The iPad, however, once again suffered a decline, with unit sales falling 20 per cent year-on-year.

Chinese revenue soared 99 per cent year-on-year.

"This continued success is the result of our commitment to making the best, most innovative products on earth, and it's a testament to the tremendous execution by our teams," Apple CEO Tim Cook said.

"We are heading into the holidays with our strongest product line-up yet, including iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, Apple Watch with an expanded line-up of cases and bands, the new iPad Pro, and the all-new Apple TV which begins shipping this week."
