Apple’s better-than-expected, but still kind of boring quarter in three charts

Apple just released results for its fourth quarter, July through September. Revenue for those three months was $37.5 billion, beating expectations.

All-in-all, Q4 looked a lot like Q3, except Apple sold more iPhones and more computers. The bump in phone sales may have happened during the quarter’s final 10 days—the first week-and-a-half that the new line of iPhones were available in the United States. Apple’s fourth quarter is always strong when it comes to Mac sales, presumably because of back-to-school shopping.
