Earnings: Apple (AAPL) Q4 revenue jumps 29% on strong iPhone sales but misses estimates

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) on Thursday reported strong revenue and earnings growth for the fourth quarter of 2021, driven by impressive sales of iPhone, the company’s flagship product that accounts for nearly half of its sales, and continued expansion of the services business. The top line missed analysts’ forecasts, while earnings matched.

The Cupertino-based gadget giant’s fourth-quarter sales increased 29% from last year to $83.4 billion, mainly reflecting a 47% surge in the sales of iPhone and steady growth of its services business. The top-line missed the consensus estimates.

During the September quarter, net profit moved up to $20.55 billion or $1.24 per share from $12.67 billion or $0.73 per share in the fourth quarter of 2020. It was in line with Wall Street’s expectations.
