Just how good has Apple's last three months been? Extremely good. The company released their Q4 results from fiscal year 2015, and it has set yet another record: $51.5 billion in revenue. This is up 22% over the same period of 2014, where it was at $42.1 billion.

The company rode the success of the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, while the new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus haven't been out long enough to impact profits. Next quarter should be a big one, of course. For the last three months, Apple sold a little over 48 million iPhones. This is up from the 39.2 million iPhones it sold in Q4 2014, an increase of 22%.

 

As for the separation of revenue per product, Apple is controlled by the iPhone. The iPhone made up 62.5% of its revenue, while Mac sales contributed 13.4%, iTunes/software/services pulled in 9.9%, the iPad delivered 8.3% and finally, 'other products' made 5.9%. So the iPhone, is extremely important to the company in terms of revenue, something we all knew, but it's great to see these numbers.
