Apple records soaring profits despite fewer iPhone sales

Around 48 million iPhones were sold by Apple in the last three months, helping the company post a profit of $11.1 billion (£7.2bn), its latest financial results reveal.

Although sales were slightly lower than expected, the tech giant saw revenue shoot up from $42.1bn (£27.5bn) this time last year to $51.1bn (£33.3bn).

Sales figures include early purchases of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, which went on sale in September, but not of the Apple Watch.

Chief executive Tim Cook labelled it "Apple's most successful year ever", with annual revenue climbing 28 per cent to nearly $234bn (£153bn).

This continued success is the result of our commitment to making the best, most innovative products on earth, and it's a testament to the tremendous execution by our teams.

– Tim Cook, Apple
