Apple CEO Tim Cook and CFO Peter Oppenheimer took some time from the earnings call to talk about the increasing market in China - where they were presented with a question about Apple's present, and future access in the country. Even with Apple not selling the iPhone on the biggest carrier in the country, the Cupertino iPhone maker claimed to have their "best quarter ever" regionally.

 

Chinese revenue for Apple was $8.8 billion, up 11% year-over-year. Sales of the iPad grew a huge 138% in the same time frame. Both the iPhone and iPad have seen record sell-through rates in stores throughout China. Apple maintain 11 stores in the country, a number that is set to double in the next two years.
