Apple reduced iPad channel inventory by 500,000 from the end of the March quarter.

The company also sold 4.4 million Macs, compared to nearly 3.8 million in the year ago quarter, an increase of 18 percent.

The increase was driven by portables, thanks to strong growth of MacBook Air. It achieved double digit Mac growth across many countries, including the U.S. Canada, Mexico, the UK, Germany, France, Australia, China, India and the Middle-East. Macs have now gained global market share for 32 of the last 33 quarters.

Meanwhile, Apple has registered revenue of $37.4 billion in the third quarter of this fiscal, which ended on June 28.

In a statement Apple said that the net profit reaches around $7.7 billion.

International sales accounted for 59 percent of the total revenue achieved in the quarter.

Apple has sold around 35203k units of iPhone and raised revenue of $19751 million, which is relatively less than the previous quarter where Apple managed to sell 43719k units of iPhones and generated revenue of $26064 million.

iPad sale has also been hit as the company has sold only 13,276K units against 16350K units in 2nd quarter. However, there was a slight growth in the sale of Mac, as Apple has sold around 4413k units against 4136K units in the 2nd quarter.

“Our record June quarter revenue was fueled by strong sales of iPhone and Mac and the continued growth of revenue from the Apple ecosystem, driving our highest EPS growth rate in seven quarters. We are incredibly excited about the upcoming releases of iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, as well as other new products and services that we can’t wait to introduce,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO.
