Apple Earnings Q4 – 2022

From Apple Newsroom:

CUPERTINO, CALIFORNIA OCTOBER 27, 2022 Apple today announced financial results for its fiscal 2022 fourth quarter ended September 24, 2022. The Company posted a September quarter record revenue of $90.1 billion, up 8 percent year over year, and quarterly earnings per diluted share of $1.29, up 4 percent year over year. Annual revenue was $394.3 billion, up 8 percent year over year, and annual earnings per diluted share were $6.11, up 9 percent year over year.

Here’s the breakdown of the numbers with year over year change.

iPhone $42,626 million (up 9.7%)
Mac $11,508 million (up 25%)
iPad $7,174 million (down 13%)
Wearables, Home and Accessories $9,650 million (up 10%)
Services $19,188 million (up 5%)
Total Net Sales $90,146 million (up 8%)

Prices are up world-wide, supplies are constrained, and exchange rates are fluctuating. These are big factors on Apple’s bottom line, nevertheless these numbers are great! Being up 8% year over year on Total Net Sales would be a great report even if the global economy was not distressed.

Apple Earnings Q3 – 2022

Tim Cook, on his earnings call earlier today:

Apple is proud to report another record quarter with a March quarter revenue record of $97.3 billion, up 9% from a year ago and better than we anticipated. iPhone, Mac, and Wearables, Home and Accessories had their best-ever March quarter, and services set an all-time record on the strength of subscription growth over the past year.

Jason Snell, Six-Colors:

Apple’s fiscal results are out. The company generated $83B in revenue. Compared to the year-ago quarter, Mac sales were down 10%, iPad sales down 2%, iPhone up 3%, Services up 13%, and Wearables down 8%.”

Services have been a big part of Apple’s strategic plan over the last few years and they are reaping the rewards. According to chief financial officer, Luca Maestri, Apple now has over 860 million subscribers across its iCloud, AppleTV+, Apple Music, Apple News and other services.

MacRumors:

Speaking during Apple’s third-quarter earnings call, Maestri said Apple has over 860 million subscribers, which is an increase of 160 million over just the last 12 months. Apple does not provide a breakdown of subscribers counts per service, but Maestri said growth was strong in offerings like Apple TV+ and Apple Arcade.

Mac sales might have slumped during this quarter compared to last year at this time, but it was last year’s third quarter where so many more people jumped into buying new MacBooks because of the pandemic and as well because of the long awaited arrival of Apple silicon. I’ve been using the M1 MacBook Air since it came out, and typing on this new M2 MacBook Air that arrived earlier today, I’m convinced 1 this one is going to sell even better than the M1.


  1. Disclosure: I own shares of AAPL. Also, this is not investing advice, I’m just excited about my new computer and for the company. ↩︎

M2 Macbook Air

Ever since my MacBook Pro (2015) screen went kaput a couple of years ago, I’ve been sharing a computer with my wife. Back in March I decided to go all out and ordered a top-of-the-line MacBook Pro with M1 Ultra, but ultimately I cancelled my order and held out for this beautiful completely redesigned MacBook Air with Apple’s M2 processor. It arrived yesterday and as fun as that other computer would have been, I think I made the right decision.

Daring Fireball

Daring Fireball is one of my favourite websites. Yesterday, I stumbled upon this post in which John Gruber explains the origin for the site’s unique name.

When I was very young, first grade/kindergarten or something like that, in the late 70s, Evel Knievel used to have regular specials on ABC. He’d jump overseas fountains or trying to jump over Grand Canyon or something. And I loved Evel Knievel. I thought that was America — just great. A guy on a motorcycle doing crazy stuff.

And the first thing I ever would answer ‘What’d you wanna be when you grow up?’ was I wanted to be a daredevil stuntman. I wanted to get shot out of a canon. This is my idea — instead of a motorcycle, I would do like Evel Knievel except getting shot out of a canon. And instead of just being in a tent in a circus and getting shot in to a net, I would do like Evel Knievel, go to landmarks around the world and get shot over them or in to them or shoot myself into an open window on the 47th floor of the Empire State building. And I came up with the name Daring Fireball.

Apple Financial Results Q4 2021

Yesterday, Apple released its financial results for the fourth quarter ending September 25, 2021.

The Company posted a September quarter revenue record of $83.4 billion, up 29 percent year over year, and quarterly earnings per diluted share of $1.24. They announced quarterly dividends of $0.22USD per share.

iPhone $38,868 million (up 47%)
Mac $9,178 million (up 1.6%)
iPad $8,252 million (up 21.4%)
Wearables, Home and Accessories $8,785 million (up 11.5%)
Services $14,549 million (up 25.6%)
Total Net Sales $83,360 million (up 28.8%)

CEO Tim Cook explained that because of supply constraints the Total Net Sales were down about $6 billion from what they otherwise would have been. Macworld has the story:

Six. Billion. Dollars. That’s cash that Apple’s customers slapped on the table in the last three months, saying “shut up and take my money“… and were denied. Because Apple just didn’t have the products available to sell. That record $83.4 billion quarter should’ve been a record $89.4 billion quarter, but for all the woes in the international supply chain. And here’s the scarier part: it’s going to get worse before it gets better.

“What we’re saying is that the nominal amount of supply constraints for Q1, we estimate to be larger than $6 billion,” Cook said. “And so it’s important to know that we’re getting a lot more supply in Q1 than we had in Q4, obviously because our sequential growth is significant and we have very solid growth year over year. And so the amount of supply is growing dramatically, it’s just that the demand is so robust that we envision having supply constraints for the quarter.”

Jason Snell has some preliminary graphs, and don’t miss the revenue overview in his fun with charts post.

WWDC 2021

Apple hosted its World Wide Developer’s Conference (day 1) today. As much as I think a career in coding would have been good for me, I really only dabble as an amateur programmer. Nevertheless I love the keynote.

Here’s the summary video from Day 1:

Apple Earnings Call Q2 2021

Apple released it’s second quarter earnings today and blew out even the most exuberant expectations with revenue reaching a record $89.6 billion, up 54 percent year over year. The results were fabulous across the board.

iPhone $47,938 million (up 66%)
Mac $9,102 million (up 70%)
iPad $7,807 million (up 79%)
Wearables, Home and Accessories $7,836 million (up 25%)
Services $16,901 million (up 27%)
Total Net Sales $89,584 million (up 54%)

What a great quarter. Particularly iPad and Mac were very, very strong. Just look at Mac alone — the last three quarters have each returned record earnings. Sales looking forward are predicted to be supply constrained rather than demand constrained.

More details of their earnings can be found in Apple’s Fiscal Year 2021 Second Quarter Consolidated Financial Statement.
