Apple today announced financial results for its fiscal 2022 third quarter ended June 25, 2022. The Company posted a June quarter revenue record of $83.0 billion, up 2 percent year over year, and quarterly earnings per diluted share of $1.20.
Unlike both Microsoft and Google, who missed forecasts, Apple beat Wall Street expectations for sales and profit for the quarter.
Apple generated revenue of $83 billion vs. $82.81 billion estimated while earning $1.20 per share vs. $1.16 estimated.
“This quarter’s record results speak to Apple’s constant efforts to innovate, to advance new possibilities, and to enrich the lives of our customers,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “As always, we are leading with our values, and expressing them in everything we build, from new features that are designed to protect user privacy and security, to tools that will enhance accessibility, part of our longstanding commitment to create products for everyone.”
“Our June quarter results continued to demonstrate our ability to manage our business effectively despite the challenging operating environment. We set a June quarter revenue record and our installed base of active devices reached an all-time high in every geographic segment and product category,” said Luca Maestri, Apple’s CFO. “During the quarter, we generated nearly $23 billion in operating cash flow, returned over $28 billion to our shareholders, and continued to invest in our long-term growth plans.”
Other highlights include:
- iPhone revenue: $40.67 billion vs. $38.33 billion estimated, up 3% year-over-year
- Services revenue: $19.60 billion vs. $19.70 billion estimated, up 12% year-over-year
