The firm has also confirmed that iPad and Mac sales have experienced double-digit growth in spite of the impact of COVID-19. Strong sales in other parts of the business, such as services and wearables, meant the United States technology company posted quarterly revenue of $59.7bn, an increase of 11 per cent from the year-ago quarter. Some products contributed to that growth more than others. But it hurt handset sales, despite a relatively strong launch for the iPhone SE. And Apple services experienced something of an off quarter, too.

The pandemic is keeping people at home, which has spurred demand for Apple devices to help millions of consumers use the internet to keep in touch with friends, family and co-workers.

It has previously been suggested that Apple will issue four versions of the iPhone this year - the 12, 12 Max, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max, with screen sizes of 5.4, 6.1, 6.1 and 6.7 inches, respectively. It represents the company's third fiscal quarter of 2020.

Mac sales grew substantially in the April-to-June quarter.

Mac sales brought in $7 billion, up from $5.8 billion in the YoY, while ‌iPad‌ sales brought in $6.5 billion, up from $5 billion in the same quarter previous year.

The pandemic has also pushed back Apple's original time frame for returning to work at its offices.

This marked the highest Q3 quarterly revenue from iPad sales in eight years.

So, it's clear that more people are relying on Apple's services to get them through quarantine. "This year, we project supply to be available a few weeks later", he said. Although the company didn't specify reasons for this delay, it may directly be connected with the COVID-19. Customers appear to be ditching their current devices for the new iPhone SE, in particular.
