In the wake of another bumper quarterly earnings report, Apple CEO Tim Cook has sent an open letter to all of the company's employees. In the letter he thanks the workers for Cupertino's success and told of a bright future while discussing new products.Apple announced a massive fourth quarter that outpaced analyst predictions, while sales of iPhone soared during the first weeks of the iPhone 6.
Team, Today we reported Apple's highest September quarter revenue ever and our strongest revenue growth rate in seven quarters. These very strong results were made possible by your hard work and dedication. Customers around the world are loving the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, quickly making this the fastest and most successful iPhone launch in history. The Mac set a new all-time record while the rest of the PC market declined. And the App Store was once again an important driver of our overall revenue growth. Today we're launching Apple Pay in the U.S., giving our customers a simple, secure and private way to pay. Later this week we'll be shipping the new iPad Air 2, the world's thinnest tablet and the most powerful iPad we've ever made. The new 27" iMac with Retina 5K display, which we just introduced last week, is already being hailed as the best visual experience ever on a computer. This is an amazing lineup for the holidays. The user experience across all our products keeps getting better, thanks to the deep collaboration among our teams. iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite have raised the bar for mobile and desktop operating systems, and they work together in elegant, intuitive ways that only Apple can deliver. Later this week, I'll be talking with a group of Apple employees in Beijing. We're going to record the meeting so you can watch it on AppleWeb, and we'll include questions from other sites. Please visit AppleWeb to submit a question and I'll answer as many as I can. Congratulations on the strong results we've achieved together. We can all be proud of the quarter we just reported, and the work that keeps Apple the most innovative company in the world. Timsource: 9to5Google
