“We are pleased to report an all-time record in Services and a March quarter record for iPhone despite the challenging macroeconomic environment, and to have our installed base of active devices reach an all-time high,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We continue to invest for the long term and lead with our values, including making major progress toward building carbon neutral products and supply chains by 2030.”

Apple setting a new record for Q2 iPhone sales is quite significant, as this was likely the driving force behind the company beating expectations. The financial statement PDF reveals that most of Apple’s products, including Macbooks and iPads, were down in year-over-year comparisons.

This quarter, Apple also announced that it’s adding $90 billion to its stock buyback program. For more on Apple’s (AAPL) earnings report, and all of this week’s other financial news, Shacknews has you covered.
