Apple's latest profits soared past expectations as sales of its best-known iPhone and iPad products more than doubled.
Net income was $7.31bn (Ł4.6bn) in the three months to 25 June, 125% higher than a year earlier and a record quarterly profit for the firm. Revenue was $28.6bn, also a quarterly record.
Apple sold more than 20 million iPhones in the quarter and 9.25 million iPads.
However, iPod sales continued to slip, down by 20% to 7.54 million units.
The results assuaged concerns about the supply of the iPad 2, partly because of parts supply interruptions caused by Japan's tsunami and earthquake in March.
