Smartphone sales topped $71 billion on strong demand for the iPhone 13 lineup. Luca Maestri, chief financial officer of the group, in a press release published on Thursday.

Little affected by the shortage

Apple now has 1.8 billion devices in use worldwide.

Its results were highly anticipated, especially in light of the global shortage of semiconductors linked to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Smartphones and services on the rise
