Apple has declared its financial results for the fourth quarter of 2017.

The firm declared net sales amounting to $52.6 billion and the net income declared amounts to $10.7 billion.

There is good news for shareholders as well as Apple revealed that earnings per diluted share is $2.07, a 40c increase from the 2016 $1.67 earnings per diluted share.

While the Americas account for 14% of Apple’s revenue, 62% of the firm’s revenue is generated internationally.

The iPhone is understandably the most popular product with the Apple name. In Q4 the firm saw 46.7 million iPhones sold. That’s a 3% increase year-on-year.

Lovers of Apple’s slate seem to be talking with their wallets (finally) as sales of the iPad increased 11% year-on-year to 10.3 million.

The Mac also sold well this last quarter with a 25% increase in revenue and 10% increase in units sold. For those interested revenue from Mac sales came in at $4.8 billion.

Of interest is Apple’s “other products” declaration. This section bundles Apple TV, Apple Watch, Beats products, iPod Touch and Apple-branded and third-party accessories together under one banner.

No unit numbers are declared but revenue from “other products” amounts to $3.2 billion.

A good year for Apple then, and the iPhone X hasn’t even rolled out en masse yet.
