Wait. What? How did that happen? When? I did the math. Or, rather, Apple did the math and released it to the public. Here’s the public-facing numbers from Apple:
The Company posted quarterly revenue of $64 billion, an increase of 2 percent from the year-ago quarter, and quarterly earnings per diluted share of $3.03, up 4 percent. International sales accounted for 60 percent of the quarter’s revenue.
CFO Luca Maestri:
Our strong business performance drove record Q4 EPS of $3.03 and record Q4 operating cash flow of $19.9 billion. We also returned over $21 billion to shareholders, including almost $18 billion in share repurchases and $3.5 billion in dividends and equivalents, as we continue on our path to reaching a net cash neutral position over time.
What about the Mac? Oh. Wait. What defines a PC? If Microsoft’s Surface is lauded as a tablet, too, then iPads are PCs, too, and combined, both topped HP, Lenovo, and Microsoft in the most recent quarter and put Apple’s non-iPhone PC revenue– Mac and iPhone– at $47-billion.
Steve Jobs would be proud.
