Here are the five facts you need to know about Apple's record results:

  • Apple made more than $1bn a week in profits in the last 12 months.
  • Apple's $234bn full year revenue dwarfs Ireland's GDP (of $227bn).
  • And Greece's, which is $139bn. Perhaps it could lend a hand with some debt relief?
  • And even oil-rich Qatar, with a GDP of $192bn is left in the dust by iPhone sales.
  • Apple could buy Twitter, which also reported tonight, and still have over $180bn left over.

Chief exec Tim Cook put the record performance down to Apple's "commitment to making the best, most innovative products on earth" and predicted that the best was yet to come.

"We are heading into the holidays with our strongest product lineup yet," he said.
