The fiscal Q4 results were also the strongest showing for the Mac business since the company's fiscal Q1, when sales of $7.24 billion were buoyed by the introduction of the revamped MacBook Pro. The delay may have prompted some buyers to wait to check out the iPhone X before deciding on its more affordable sibling. This is a step Cupertino is unwilling to take, having learned valuable lessons from the iPhone X supply issues.

The iPhone is the main profit driver for Apple, accounting for more than half its revenues, and importantly is the cornerstone for the ecosystem of other devices and services.

Analysts were looking for guidance from Apple that mirrors the questions playing out in many Apple fans' minds across the country: iPhone X or iPhone 8?

"We're happy to report a very strong finish to a great fiscal 2017, with record fourth quarter revenue, year-over-year growth for all our product categories, and our best quarter ever for Services", said Tim Cook, Apple's CEO. "That's a few coffees a week". However, a lot of people queuing up outside Apple stocks leaked over the preceding various years with various customers preferring to buy online, the limited production for the iPhone 8 has noticeably been due to secondary reports. "Less than a coffee a day at one of these nice coffee places".

Examiners have suggested that the produce that on hand is ineffectual, While the owing to the forced amount of essential iPhone X elements. The phone is instead unlocked with a so-called Face ID system, which uses a depth-sensing camera on the front of the phone to let the user unlock it with his or her face.

"We can not assure if you will get the device tomorrow".

Cook and Maestri said key factors in the growth of the Mac division included rising demand in China, as well as strong sales in the enterprise and education markets.

Cook stressed that the devices have been selling well, but admitted the staggered launch of two new iPhone models marks a new approach for the company with certain unknowns. Cook said the Apple Watch posted a unit sales growth of over 50 percent for the third consecutive quarter.

It sold 46.6 million iPhones, in line with forecasts of 46 million and up from 45.5 million a year ago.

Even supply chain solution provider Redington India and HCL Infosystems that sell newly-launched iPhones on their partner stores were yet to send any information on iPhone X. Revenue came to $52.6 billion, an increase of 12 percent year-over-year.
