• Tim Cook Sends Out Letter Praising Employees for Highest September Quarter Revenue Ever



    Apple CEO Tim Cook has sent out a letter to his employees after the company’s quarterly earnings report was released recently. The letter complimented the employees on their hard work and the growth of the company after release of the iPhone, iPad lineup as well as the new Retina iMac. Cook talked about how the iPhone 6 lineup was the fastest and most successful iPhone launch in Apple history. It was also noted in the letter that the company received its highest revenue growth in seven quarters.

    Team,

    Today we reported Apple’s highest September quarter revenue ever and our strongest revenue growth rate in seven quarters. These very strong results were made possible by your hard work and dedication.

    Customers around the world are loving the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, quickly making this the fastest and most successful iPhone launch in history. The Mac set a new all-time record while the rest of the PC market declined. And the App Store was once again an important driver of our overall revenue growth.

    Today we’re launching Apple Pay in the U.S., giving our customers a simple, secure and private way to pay. Later this week we’ll be shipping the new iPad Air 2, the world’s thinnest tablet and the most powerful iPad we’ve ever made. The new 27” iMac with Retina 5K display, which we just introduced last week, is already being hailed as the best visual experience ever on a computer. This is an amazing lineup for the holidays.

    The user experience across all our products keeps getting better, thanks to the deep collaboration among our teams. iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite have raised the bar for mobile and desktop operating systems, and they work together in elegant, intuitive ways that only Apple can deliver.

    Later this week, I’ll be talking with a group of Apple employees in Beijing. We’re going to record the meeting so you can watch it on AppleWeb, and we’ll include questions from other sites. Please visit AppleWeb to submit a question and I’ll answer as many as I can.

    Congratulations on the strong results we’ve achieved together. We can all be proud of the quarter we just reported, and the work that keeps Apple the most innovative company in the world.

    Tim
    Apple Pay was mentioned in Cook’s memo in that it will “give our customers a simple, secure, and private way to pay.” The last thing mentioned in the note was that the CEO would be meeting employees in Beijing and that it would be recorded and posted for employees across Apple to watch. All employees will have the opportunity to submit questions before the meeting for the Question & Answer session.
