US tech giant Apple Inc said on Friday it derived revenue of $14.56 billion from China in the September quarter, marking an 83 percent year-on-year jump.
The results came amid the robust performance of Apple”s new iPhone 13 series in the nation.
Apple is also stepping up its green push in China. The company announced on Thursday it has doubled the number of its Chinese suppliers moving to 100 percent renewable energy.
Fifty Chinese companies have now joined Apple’s Supplier Clean Energy Program, which has more than doubled its commitments in the past year, the company said in a statement.
Isabel Ge Mahe, vice-president and managing director of Apple Greater China, said, “We are thrilled that so many companies across China are joining with us on this crucial work to protect the planet and support China’s green transformation.”
