Apple has reported Asia Pacific region revenues of $3.93 billion for the quarter ended October 2015, registering a modest 9.47% growth from $3.59 billion in the same quarter last year. Note that these revenues do not include Greater China (China, Hong Kong and Taiwan) and Japan region. Those are reported separately.

The region accounted for 7.6% of Apple’s overall revenues at $51.5 billion for the quarter, up 22% year-on-year (YoY). In comparison, Asia Pacific had accounted for 5.95% of Apple’s revenues in the previous quarter.

Net profit: Apple’s overall net profit increased to $11.1 billion for the quarter, from $8.4 billion profit in the same quarter last year. International sales contributed for 57.8% of the company’s revenue, an increase from 53.12% in the corresponding quarter last year although a decrease from 60% last quarter. Note that this decrease is not due to international markets making less money, they are making Apple more money than ever before, however, the US sales have increased at a greater rate.

iPhone sales up: Apple sold 48.04 million iPhones in the quarter, up 22.24% from 39.3 million iPhones in the same quarter last year. Overall, this segment reported revenues of $32.20 billion for the quarter, registering a 35.98% growth from $23.68 billion in the corresponding quarter last year.

This revenue growth also led to an increase in the segment’s contribution to Apple’s overall revenues. iPhones sales now contribute for 62.5% of Apple’s total revenues, down marginally from 63.22% in the previous quarter and up from 56.12% in the same quarter last year.
