This Thursday (28), Apple announced the results of its fiscal 2021 fourth quarter, which officially ended on September 25, 2021 — the period is between July and September. The company said it posted revenue of $83.4 billion in the last quarter, an increase of 29% over the previous year’s figures.
“This year, we launched our most powerful products ever, from Macs with M1s to an iPhone 13 lineup that is setting a new standard for performance and empowering our customers to create and connect in new ways,” revealed Tim Cook.
Record in Mac sales
According to the company, during the September quarter, more than $24 billion was “returned” to brand shareholders. Apple’s board of directors has declared a cash dividend of $0.22 per share.
The company also announced record sales of Mac devices, which reached $9.17 billion. Although no new MacBooks were released during the period, it is possible that the pandemic and the workday home office have helped in the growth of numbers.
