Apple has also so far appeared to have avoided a major blow to the global chip deficit, but chief financial officer Luca Maestri said the impact would be greater in the fourth quarter than in the third.

Apple has launched its iPhone 12 model, all of which can connect to 5G wireless networks faster, thanks to Qualcomm Inc. chips than last year.

A new generation of phones this fall. But the motivation to upgrade to 5G seems to be driving a better buying cycle for the iPhone than many analysts had expected. Apple says the iPhone has sold 39.57 billion, about 50% more than a year ago and 34 34 billion more than analysts had expected. Cook told Reuters that Apple’s iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max, the device’s premium tier, are strong sellers. According to Definitive, it helped push gross margins to 43.3%, above the 41.9% estimate. Another key driver of Apple’s results was its service business, which included television and music, as well as paid subscriptions to its App Store. Service revenue reached a record high.17.49 billion, one-third higher than a year earlier and higher than analysts’ expectations of 16.33 billion. Cook told Reuters that Apple now has 700 million subscribers on various platforms, up from 660 million a quarter ago.

Apple was in trouble. Last quarter, Apple told investors that global chip deficit sales could hold from 3 billion to 4 billion, largely due to a shortage of secondary chips made with older technology used on iPods and Macs.
Cook told Reuters that the lack of chips limited Apple to how many Macs and iPads it could sell but that the impact of Apple’s overall revenue from the deficit was “less than the lower end” of its forecast range. In the long run, Apple’s service business regulator is at risk. The company’s practice of charging 15% to 30% commission on developers who sell in the App Store and use Apple’s payment system could face scrutiny from regulators in the United States and Europe, where lawmakers are proposing legislation that could reduce some.
