Apple posted $81.4 billion in revenue for the June 2021 quarter on better-than-expected iPhone sales, as its services division continued strong growth.
The tech giant’s iPhone sales hit $39.57 billion in the most recent quarter, up 50%, handily beating analyst expectations of $34 billion, per FactSet. In the first three months of 2021, iPhone sales had increased 66%. Apple CFO Luca Maestri had told analysts in April that the company was expecting a larger-than-usual sequential decline in sales because of supply-chain shortages.
Apple’s services segment, which includes the App Store, Apple Music, iCloud, Apple TV Plus and other products, posted revenue of $17.5 billion, up 33%.
