Apple’s revenue in fiscal Q3 2019 amounted to $53,809 million ($53.8 billion), worldwide – the highest revenue in June quarter ever. The growth was primarily driven by all-time record revenue from Services, accelerating growth from Wearables, strong performance from iPad and Mac and the significant improvement in iPhone trends as well, according to Tim Cook. However, the company recorded a notable -7.2% decline in its Q3 revenue when compared to the previous quarter.
It is important to note that the first fiscal quarter of every year, known as the holiday quarter, has always been the most promising for the company, in terms of revenue and sales. It was fiscal Q1 2013 when the quarterly revenue of Apple crossed $50 billion for the first time.
While in fiscal Q1 2018, ended on December 30, 2017, Apple’s global revenue hit a new record of $88,293 million ($88.3 billion), with nearly 13% YoY growth.
