(NEW YORK) — Apple has announced record third quarter earnings that includes an upbeat message from an “incredibly excited” CEO Tim Cook.
“Our record June quarter revenue was fueled by strong sales of iPhone and Mac and the continued growth of revenue from the Apple ecosystem, driving our highest EPS growth rate in seven quarters,” he said. “We are incredibly excited about the upcoming releases of iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, as well as other new products and services that we can’t wait to introduce.”
The company reported higher iPhone sales this June quarter compared to the same period last year, despite customers who may be holding out for the anticipated iPhone 6.
In a conference call, Cook said he was “excited” about recent developments, including the acquisition of Beats.
Cook also repeated that there is an “incredible pipeline of products and services that we can’t wait to show you” — although he did not go into any detail.
