Apple just reversed its slide, if you can call it that.
After three quarters in a row of slowing sales growth, Apple’s September quarter — reported this afternoon — shows a modest re-acceleration. See Matthew Panzarino’s post for the financial big picture, and Chris Velazco’s for the product-by-product details.
Now for the charts. You’ll note a modest uptick in Apple’s revenue and profit growth rate — though profits are still down year-over-year. The iPhone is still the heart of Apple’s business, representing 52% of sales and likely more of its profits.
