Apple has just announced its financial results for the three months to the end of September, and it contains some fascinating numbers which give a real insight into the company and where it makes most of its money from.

Here we bring you all the most important data in one place from revenue to iPhone sales and where in the world Apple is growing fastest:

  • $42.12 billion - The revenue figure for the quarter, which is up a huge 12% year-over-year, and well ahead of analyst expectations of $39.85bn.
  • 39.3 million iPhones - Up 16% compared to last year and again well above expectations of 38 million. And remember, this is with just 11 days of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus sales and none in huge markets like China.
  • 32 - Territories the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are currently on sale.
  • 69 - the number of countries the new phones will be on sale in by the end of the month.
  • 115 - the number of countries and territories Apple will be in by December.
  • $63.5 billion and $66.5 billion - Apple's revenue guidance for the current quarter. Last year Apple reported $57.6bn, meaning the company is expecting the huge interest in the iPhone to bolster its bottom line significantly.
  • 38% - Gross margin for the quarter, which was up from 37% last year and continues to be at a level which pretty much every tech company in the world is supremely envious of.
  • 13% - It was not all good news for Apple, as iPad sales continued to fall, down 13% to 12.3 million units and well below analyst expectations of 13 million. Will the new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 reverse the continuing decline? We'll find out in January
