Apple made sales worth $35bn and profit of $8.8bn in its third quarter, boosted by a huge rise in iPad sales and strong growth in iPhone sales.

In the same quarter a year ago, the company made sales of $28bn and profit of $7.3bn.

During the financial quarter ended 30 June, Apple sold 17 million iPads, an 84% increase on last year. Sales of iPhones increased 28% to 26 million.

Sales outside the US accounted for 62% of Apple’s revenue.

Apple announced that it has updated the entire MacBook line. It is also releasing Mountain Lion this week, and will launch iOS 6 in the autumn. 

“We are also really looking forward to the amazing new products we’ve got in the pipeline,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook.
