“We grew double digits in emerging markets led by strong performances in Brazil, mainland China, India, Thailand, and Turkey,” Cook said analysts after reporting all-time high revenue for Apple’s fiscal 2020 first part that ended on December 28.
The income from iPhones in the vacation quarter was $56 billion globally.
“Again, that’s up 8% over a year ago, thanks to the rare demand for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
“In fact, iPhone 11 was our top-selling model every week during the December quarter, and the three new models were our three most popular iPhones,” told a beaming Cook.
Indians did a beeline to buy iPhone 11 that flew off the shelves in the festive period. The iPhone XR, launched last year, also did great.
Mac and iPad made $7.2 and $6 billion globally in income, respectively.
“For iPad, we saw growth in key emerging markets like Mexico, India, Turkey, Poland, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Vietnam,” answered Cook.
“The high level of customer satisfaction and loyalty for both products drove the active installed base of both Mac and iPad to new records in all geographic segments,” the Apple CEO replied.
