Earnings grew 4% to $3.03 per share, while analysts had projected it at $2.84 per share. The better-than-expected earnings sent AAPL shares up 1.5% during after-market trading on Tuesday.

CEO Tim Cook said, “With customers and reviewers raving about the new generation of iPhones, today’s debut of new, noise-cancelling AirPods Pro, the hotly-anticipated arrival of Apple TV+ just two days away, and our best lineup of products and services ever, we’re very optimistic about what the holiday quarter has in store.”
