Apple is projecting total revenue for the 2019 first quarter in the range between $89 billion and $93 billion

Apple on Thursday announced a 20 per cent increase in quarterly sales revenue, which hit $62.9 billion, media reported.

The financial results for Apple’s fiscal 2018 fourth quarter that ended September 29 showed its quarterly earnings per diluted share were $2.91, up 41 per cent from the previous corresponding period, and its international sales contributed 61 per cent to the fourth quarter revenue.

Apple said it generated $19.5 billion in operating cash flow and returned over 23 billion to shareholders in dividends and share repurchases in the quarter, bringing total capital returned in fiscal 2018 to almost $90 billion, reports Xinhua.

“We’re thrilled to report another record-breaking quarter that caps a tremendous fiscal 2018, the year in which we shipped our 2 billionth iOS device, celebrated the 10th anniversary of the App Store and achieved the strongest revenue and earnings in Apple’s history,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook.
