“This quarter for Apple wouldn’t have been possible without the tireless and innovative work of every Apple team member worldwide,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We’re gratified by the enthusiastic customer response to the unmatched line of cutting-edge products that we delivered across a historic holiday season. We are also focused on how we can help the communities we’re a part of build back strongly and equitably, through efforts like our Racial Equity and Justice Initiative as well as our multi-year commitment to invest $350 billion throughout the United States.”
The company’s iPhone, Wearables and Services set new revenue records, thanks to sales of iPhone 12 and more.

We also returned over $30 billion to shareholders during the quarter as we maintain our target of reaching a net cash neutral position over time.”
