Apple has just revealed the revenue for its last fiscal quarter, and it has surpassed expectations.

The firm has raked in almost $15.7 billion, which is up a third on the same time last year.

This strong performance is mainly due to record sales of both the Mac and iPhone.

Apple sold almost 9 million iPhones in the quarter, which is double the amount of the previous year.

Although it’s the Mac’s performance that has surprised analysts, shifting well over 3 million units, up a third on the same period last year.

Apple is expected to launch its new tablet PC at an event tomorrow, and that device might be breaking sales records come the end of this year.
