Data from Statista appears to confirm that the Cupertino company raked in $41.9 billion (£26.2bn) over the last year, double that of Intel, IBM, Lenovo, Acer, Asus, HP and Dell combined.
The iPhone-maker also made around $7bn (£4.3bn) more than the cumulative total of internet giants Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Amazon, Yahoo and eBay.
Apple achieved these feats despite missing Wall Street estimates for the past two quarters, an under-performance which company executives blamed on persistent product rumours.
The firm's competitors in the mobile sector - RIM, HTC, Nokia and bitter rival Samsung - raked in combined profits of $12.8bn (£8bn), just over a quarter of Apple's total.
Samsung enjoyed a successful year thanks in no small part to the success of its Galaxy range, the line of products Apple continues to target in the ongoing patent feud between the two firms.
