Last night, Apple presented its report for the second quarter of the financial year, the period from January to March. And the numbers make delicious reading for the company's shareholders and other well-wishers.

Revenue for the quarter was $89.6bn, or roughly £64bn. This is an increase of 54% compared to the same period in the previous year.

Net profit, meanwhile, was $23.6bn (about £17bn). This is more than double the profit Apple reported in Q2 2020.

Revenue from the iPhone and Mac increased by 65% and 70% respectively. iPhone sales were expected to be excellent, but the Mac is doing unexpectedly well: as Jason Snell observes, this was its best ever quarter, and the three most recent quarters make up the top three of all time.

Revenues from the iPad, other products and services are also increasing sharply.

"We are proud of our March quarter performance, which included revenue records in each of our geographic segments and strong double-digit growth in each of our product categories, driving our installed base of active devices to an all-time high," commented the company's CFO, Luca Maestri.

"We are confident in our future and continue to make significant investments to support our long-term plans and enrich our customers' lives."

If you want to take a closer look at the figures, a summary of the quarterly report is available on Apple's Newsroom website.
