Apple’s Q3 FY17 financial results

q317-pie

Apple announced its third-quarter financial results for fiscal 2017 today. In the most recent quarter, the company earned $45.4 billion in revenue, up from $42.4 billion in the year-ago quarter. Check out our transcript of the analyst call here for all the details. This post has charts. Lots of charts.

iPhone revenues were $24 billion (up 3.3 percent versus the year-ago quarter) on sales of 41 million (up 1.6 percent).

Mac revenues were $5.6 billion (up 6.7 percent) on sales of 4.3 million (up 0.9 percent).

Perhaps most notably, iPad revenues were $4.97 billion (up 1.9 percent) on sales of 11.4 million (up 14.8 percent). This increase in sales ends an unpleasant streak where iPad year-over-year sales figures dropped for 13 straight quarters.

Apple’s Services category continued to grow, setting an all-time record in the category. Other Products, a category that includes Apple Watch, also grew.

The company showed growth in its Americas and Europe sectors, but the Greater China segment showed continued revenue decline.
