"We hosted 94 million visitors during the quarter, compared to 77.5 million a year ago, for an increase of 22 percent," Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer said during the company's fourth fiscal quarter earnings report on Thursday. "That translates to 19,000 per store, per week."

He added that average revenue per store was US$11.2 million.

Apple reported revenue at US$36 billion for the quarter with $8.2 billion in profit. That profit came from selling 26.9 million iPhones, 14 million iPads, and 4.9 million Macs.

"We're very proud to end a fantastic fiscal year with record September quarter results," Apple CEO Tim Cook said.

Apple opened 18 new stores in across ten different countries during the quarter, and has plans for more retail locations, too.
