Sell-through was stronger, as the company reduced iPhone channel inventory by 3.3 million units.

Apple (aapl) sold 1% more Mac computers than it did a year earlier, even as the overall PC market shrunk about 4%.

However iPad sales jumped from 10 million to 11.42 million, a real boost for Apple's tablet business which has in the past been accused of stagnating.

It was seen as particularly impressive given the fact its new iPhone 8 and 7S models are expected to be released in September, despite doubts that weak availability of key chips could hit the launch.

Net profit rose to $US8.72 billion, from $US7.80 billion, or $1.42. As of late July, Apple was at risk of falling out of the top 5 smartphone vendors in China, according to data from Canalys.

Tim Cook, Apple chief executive, told analysts iPad sales to schools and other educational institutions had risen 32 per cent to 1m units.

Apple also said that for its current, fiscal fourth quarter, it expects revenue to be in a range of $49 billion to $52 billion.
