Apple India Revenue: Apple's CEO, Tim Cook, announced during the company's quarterly earnings call that they had achieved an all-time revenue record in India for the September quarter (Q3). Apple reported quarterly revenue of $89.5 billion and noted strong growth in India during the July-September period.

India: A Major Focus for Apple

According to IANS, when asked about Apple's momentum in India, Cook emphasised that India is an incredibly exciting and major market focus for the company.
