It’s that time of year again… the new Apple fiscal year! Apple’s 2022 fiscal year begins on September 26, 2021 and continues through October 1st, 2022. Apple’s fiscal year is divided into four quarters (Q1, Q2, Q3, and Q4), and each quarter typically includes one 35-day fiscal month and two 28-day fiscal months.
Apple's fiscal year is typically 364 days long. But every 5 years, Apple adds an extra week to their fiscal year to keep it aligned with the 365-day calendar year (and 366-day leap year). For the 2022 fiscal year, Apple added the extra week to December 2021.
