The Cupertino, California-based company was also more optimistic about the current quarter than most financial analysts, driving shares up yesterday.

The biggest overhaul of the U.S. tax code in more than 30 years, the new law slashes the corporate income tax rate to 21% from 35% and charges multinationals a one-time tax on profits held overseas. Cook said the company intends to bring all its initiatives to the Indian market, including retail, as it sees a big opportunity in the South Asian nation where more people will move into the middle class over time and millions of feature phone users will upgrade to smartphones.

Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, described the AirPods as a "runaway hit" with Apple fans.

However, the iPhone ASP was US$796 for the fiscal first quarter, which meant that it was down 9 percent sequentially.

One major takeaway from Apple earnings was that the company showed the strongest growth in some of the most challenging parts of the world. Apple is expanding its manufacturing facility in Bengaluru with the acquisition of a new tract of land near Devanahalli.

The company plans to spend $10 billion opening and expanding data centers in the US and another $20 billion on other long-term projects, but it's unclear how much of that Apple would have spent anyway.

Malkin ruled out for Game 2 vs. Washington
Defensively, the Washington Capitals are allowing 2.9 goals per game and are killing 80.3 percent of their opponents power plays. Through 89 regular season matches, 50 of its games have gone over the total, while 37 have gone under and just two have pushed.

Some analysts are doing an argument that Apple would be growing its buybacks and dividends in the aftermath. And so we're putting a lot of energy there and working with the carriers in that market and they're investing enormously on LTE networks and the infrastructure has come quite a ways since we began to put a lot of energy in there due to their leadership and so forth, Cook added. That pledge implies Apple still has $145 billion to spend, based on its net cash through March, down from $163 billion at the end of 2017. The business had revenue of $61.14 billion for the quarter, compared to the consensus estimate of $60.94 billion.

It would be logical to assume the pricy iPhone X raised ASPs for Apple but with the danger of slowing sales. While announcing financial results late Tuesday, Apple didn't impress Wall Street with over the top iPhone sales.

Apple sold 52.5 million iPhones in the first three months of 2018, missing analyst projections of 53 million units sold. Boosted by the expensive iPhone X, Apple fetched an average of $728 per iPhone in this year's quarter, an 11 percent gain from last year's average of $655.

Macbook revenue saw no increase the second quarter, remaining flat at US$5.8 billion (~RM22.84 billion). It was driven by $52.2 million iPhone shipment. iPhone X has got half of its credits for which made revenues high. Shares jumped 4% in early trading.

Apple's price of shares dropped precipitously in anticipation that the company would confirm that fear, a confirmation that never came, according to the Chicago Tribune. There has been recurring speculation that Apple might try to buy Netflix, a deal that would probably cost at least $150 billion and would break the mold for a company that has shunned major acquisitions through its history.

But profitability varies widely among service offerings, and some businesses appear to have lower profit margins than the 38.3 per cent company-wide figure Apple reported.
