Revenues were up 11% at Apple to a record of $123.9bn.
The group beat analyst expectations, which were $118.7bn over the Christmas period.
The group sold a large number of iPhones and released new products ahead of Christmas.
“Despite the uncertainty of the world, there is one thing of which I am certain: Apple will continue to improve every day and in every way to deliver on the promise of technology at its best,” said Tim Cook.
Luca Maestri, Apple’s CFO, commented: “The very strong customer response to our recent launch of new products and services drove double-digit growth in revenue and earnings, and helped set an all-time high for our installed base of active devices.”
