Apple just wrapped up its Q4 earnings call where CEO Tim Cook and CFO Peter Oppenheimer went over some of the numbers discussed in its fourth quarter report, including record iPhone sales up 26% from last year to 33.8m units. Apple’s growth may not be as pronounced as in past quarters, but it appears that with its new iPhones and software it has been able to maintain what looks like more sustainable growth going into the holidays and next year.

Tim Cook hinted new product categories could be on the horizon, but even without a completely new product Apple was able to beat expectations by just about every metric. Here is a roundup of the notable numbers mentioned by Tim Cook and Peter Oppenheimer during Apple’s earnings call today that weren’t included in its fourth quarter results:
