Sales of Apple's smartphones grew strongly last quarter, up almost 30% year-over-year. That helped the company pull in $8.8 billion in profit.
There were 26 million iPhones sold around the world in the April-June period, bringing Apple $16 billion in revenue. That's nearly half of the company's 35 billion in total revenue.

The iPad sold well too: 17 million units. The iPod line continued its long decline, and Mac sales were up only modestly, pulled down by a decline in desktop sales.
How Apple does in the July-September quarter will depend greatly on when the next-generation iPhone is released, something the company is keeping quiet about. CEO Tim Cook said only that Apple "will be launching iOS 6 this Fall. We are also really looking forward to the amazing new products we've got in the pipeline." According to unconfirmed reports, the sixth-generation iPhone will either debut at the end of the current quarter or at the beginning of the next.
