Written by admin on August 4, 2017
Technology giant Apple said newer lines of business such as Apple Pay, the App Store and Apple Music helped to drive growth in its third quarter.
The services unit was what one analyst described as a “shining light”, while sales were robust for Apple’s hardware, including iPhones and iPads.
Quarterly profit rose 12% to $8.7bn (£6.6bn). Revenues grew by 7% year-on-year to $45.4bn.
