Apple announced per share of $2.18 on revenue of $119.58 billion. Analysts polled by Investing.com anticipated EPS of $2.10 on revenue of $118.06B.

The better-than-expected revenue comes despite sales in greater china sales falling 13% to $20.82B and weighing on iPhone sales amid tough competitive backdrop.

iPhone revenue, which makes up about half of total revenue, rose to $69.70B from $65.78B a year earlier, but slightly missed estimates of $67.82B.
