Soaring iPad and iPhone 4s sales have led to Apple doubling its profits in the first three months of the year.
The technology giant has reported a net profit of $11.6bn (£7.2bn) in the first quarter of 2012. Last year Apple registered a profit of $6bn for the same quarter.
Apple has beaten both Google and Microsoft’s quarterly revenues of $10.65bn and $17bn respectively.
Apple shares jumped more than seven per cent yesterday after the profit announcement.
