Apple sold 41 million iPhones between April and June this year, the tech giant's just-announced quarterly results reveal.
The three-month spring period is traditionally Apple’s quietest, but the California company still managed to convince the same number of people to pay out for an iPhone as it did in the corresponding quarter last year.
When asked directly about the effect of a growing swathe of iPhone 8 rumours, Apple CEO Tim Cook said: “We believe there is a pause [in sales], but that probably bodes well for the future.”
Apple is expected to smash previous records with the release of the iPhone 8, amid signs of pent up consumer demand.
This year's model is said to have been wholly redesigned to mark the iPhone's tenth anniversary.
A series of leaks have shown off plans for a new Face Detect scanning feature, massive edge–to–edge display and a vertical dual lens camera which can be used with virtual reality headsets.
Apple has yet to comment on the leaks. But the release of software for its forthcoming HomePod speaker has shed some official light on its plans, seemingly confirming the aforementioned features.
