Apple beat Wall Street estimates on earnings and set a new revenue record for the third quarter of its 2022 fiscal year, posting strong results despite ongoing chip shortages and supply chain challenges.
The iPhone maker reported revenue of $82.959 billion for the quarter ending in June, up 2% year over year and a new high that surpassed Refinitiv analysts’ forecast of $82.81 in Q3.
The company posted earnings per diluted share of $1.20, besting expectations of $1.16.
