The first calendar quarter of the year corresponds to the second fiscal quarter of the company.
For the quarter, Apple posted revenue of $97.3 billion and net quarterly profit of $25.0 billion, or $1.52 per share, compared to revenue of $88.6 billion and net quarterly profit of $23.6 billion, or $1.40 per share, in the year-ago quarter.
Apple set all-time records for revenue and earnings in the March quarter.
The year-ago quarter's gross margin was 42.5 percent. Apple increased its dividend to $0.23 per share, up from $0.22 per share. The dividend will be paid on May 12 to shareholders.
An increase of $90 billion has been authorized by Apple.
“This quarter’s record results are a testament to Apple’s relentless focus on innovation and our ability to create the best products and services in the world,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We are delighted to see the strong customer response to our new products, as well as the progress we’re making to become carbon neutral across our supply chain and our products by 2030. We are committed, as ever, to being a force for good in the world — both in what we create and what we leave behind.”
For the second year in a row, Apple is not issuing guidance for the current quarter.
