Apple made a $6.9bn profit in the three months to June, helped by a surge in iPhone sales.
Apple said it sold 31.2 million iPhones, a record for the June quarter, compared to 26 million last year. However, sales of its iPad dropped 14 per cent to 14.6 million units, compared with 17 million a year ago.
Revenue marginally increased in the April to June period, sitting at $35.3bn compared to $35bn from last year.
However, the near $7bn profit was down 22 per cent from the same period last year but this coincided with lower average sale prices ($581, compared with $608 a year ago).
Apple's sales in China were also down by four per cent.
Overall the company performed better than analysts expected, as shares rose five per cent following the report.
