The smart phone is becoming even more important to people because it's going across so much of your life... With things like AR… I think it becomes even more essential than it currently is. We do have a large project going and are making a big investment in this.feedback

The noise or rapport, some rumors and so forth, are at a different frequency and volume than we've ever had before. And it's clear because I'm getting comments from different people that there is a pause. But despite that, I feel great about how we did.feedback

In terms of WeChat, the way that I look at this is because our share – because iOS share is not nearly a majority of the market in China, the fact that a lot of people use that, it makes the switching opportunity even greater.feedback

We were very encouraged by the results this quarter. We improved as we thought we would from the previous quarters a little more than I thought we would.feedback

We hosted an incredibly successful Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June, and we're very excited about the advances in iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS coming this fall. The smart phone is becoming even more important to people because it's going across so much of your life and you can tell by some of the things we did at WWDC that that will only continue.feedback

IPhone sales were impressive. One decade after the initial iPhone launch, we have now surpassed 1.2 billion iPhone sold. With revenue up 7 percent year-over-year, we're happy to report our third consecutive quarter of accelerating growth and an all-time quarterly record for Services revenue. We hosted an incredibly successful Worldwide Developers Conference in June, and we're very excited about the advances in iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS coming this fall.feedback

The reason that we're pursuing this is that Qualcomm's trying to charge Apple a percentage of the total iPhone value. And they do some really great work around standards-essential patents, but it's one small part of what an iPhone is. It's not – it has nothing do with the display or the Touch ID or a gazillion other innovations that Apple has done. And so we don't think that's right, and so we're taking a principled stand on it.feedback

We buy a lot from U.S. suppliers, and this includes things like we manufacture here, our suppliers manufacture here. Corning is an example of this. We buy the glass from iPhone and iPad from Corning. But there's many other examples. We buy adhesives from 3M. 3M manufactures in my home state of Alabama and many other places as well. And so we actually spent over $50 billion last year in this country.feedback

You know, I didn't really worry about what people were saying then because I care very much about our users, and I strongly believe that if they're happy over the long term, other things will take care of itself. And so we had a lot of confidence and it's good to be here today. But we don't really look at the stock, you know? Because for us, it's about the long term. And so we're very much focused on long term shareholder value, but not the short term kind of stuff.feedback

It's that there are more rumors floating and more press articles and mentions of new things, and when that happens, a percentage of people delay. That probably affects us more in China than other places because there's a tendency there to buy the latest thing, although I have to say, the [iPhone] 7 Plus has done extraordinarily well there.feedback

When I back up from China, what I see is the Mac business grew 20 percent. You know, this is extraordinary. The Watch grew nicely. Services is just on a tear there. Chinese developers have really done a great job of delivering apps that people really want there. And so there's a whole set of things that's going well. It's so incredibly popular, so much more popular than we planned. We didn't grow in China, but we did remarkably better than we did over the second half of last year, which is what we expected, and it's what we delivered. And we feel that we'll do even better this quarter.feedback

Services are on a tear. Chinese developers have done a great job delivering apps people really want. There are a whole set of things that are going really well, we just have to get them all together.feedback

We had extremely strong services growth during the quarter in China.feedback

We're seeing what we believe to be a pause in purchases of iPhone, which we believe is due to the earlier and much more frequent reports about future iPhones. That part is clearly going on. When we combine Apple Watch, AirPods, and Beats headphones, our revenue from wearable products in the last four quarters was the size of a Fortune 500 company.feedback

First half (2017) revenue was down 13 percent year-over-year, about a third which was attributable to FX (foreign exchange). That's in contrast to a 32 percent revenue decline in the second half of last year. Our March quarter results were in line with our expectations and similar to the year over year performance we experienced in the December quarter. We continue to be very enthusiastic about our opportunity in China.feedback

It took us a little while to adjust all the way back through the supply chain and to bring iPhone 7 Plus [availability] into balance, which occurred ... early this past quarter. Where the iPhone 7 Plus did well, we didn't perform as well on some of the previous generation iPhones. What I now believe is that we'll improve a bit more during this current quarter, not back to growth but improve -- but make more progress. Demand for AirPods significantly exceed supply, and growth in Beats products has also been very strong.feedback

We are proud to report a strong March quarter, with revenue growth accelerating from the December quarter and continued robust demand for iPhone 7 Plus. Looking ahead, we are excited to welcome attendees from around the world to our annual Worldwide Developers Conference next month in San Jose. We feel great about this performance. IPhone sales were in line with our expectations.feedback

We are seeing a kind of delay in purchasing behavior that we think is a consequence of the number of rumors and reports about future products. That is happening. However, if you look at iPhone outside of greater China, iPhone units grew very nicely. We had more upgraders in the first half than ever before. And we had more switchers than ever before. There is a lot of good news in there. We are investing a ton in machine learning and autonomous systems. We are having significant growth rates beyond what we ever dreamed of.feedback

The implications of the government's demands are chilling. If the government can use the All Writs Act to make it easier to unlock your iPhone, it would have the power to reach into anyone's device to capture their data.feedback

IPhone set the standard for mobile computing in its first decade and we are just getting started. The best is yet to come.feedback

We're thrilled to report that our holiday quarter results generated Apple's highest quarterly revenue ever, and broke multiple records along the way. We sold more iPhones than ever before and set all-time revenue records for iPhone, Services, Mac and Apple Watch. Revenue from Services grew strongly over last year, led by record customer activity on the App Store, and we are very excited about the products in our pipeline. When I say, Good morning,' to Siri, my house lights come on and my coffee starts brewing. This level of home automation was unimaginable a few years ago.feedback

Looking forward, the response to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus has been very positive. It's very hard to gauge demand, as you know, when you're selling everything you're making. So we'll find out more through the quarter, but we're confident enough to give you guys guidance that we're returning to growth this quarter, which obviously feels very good for us.feedback

Our iPhone sales in India were up over 50 per cent in the fiscal 2016 compared to the prior year and we believe we are just beginning to scratch the surface of this large and growing market opportunity.feedback

We couldn't be more excited about the customer response to the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus.feedback

This is iPhone 7. It has a gorgeous new design.feedback

We have a very successful global launch of iPhone SE and demand outstripped supply throughout the quarter. At its launch, we said the addition of the SE to the iPhone lineup placed us in a better position to meet the needs of customers who love a four-inch phone and to attract even more customers into our ecosystem.feedback

We are pleased to report third-quarter results that reflect stronger customer demand and business performance than we anticipated at the start of the quarter. We had a very successful launch of iPhone SE and we're thrilled by customers' and developers' response to software and services we previewed at [Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference] in June.feedback

To place a back door in the iphone, we believe it does put hundreds of millions of customers at risk.feedback

We don't 'monetise' the information you store on your iPhone or in iCloud. And we don't read your email or your messages to get information to market to you. Our software and services are designed to make our devices better.feedback
