PALO ALTO, U.S. -- Apple reported record quarterly results on Thursday, defying supply chain disruptions and economic downtrends brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, but also said the launch of new iPhones will be delayed by "a few weeks."

"Last year, we started selling new iPhones in late September. This year, we project supply to be available a few weeks later," Chief Financial Officer Luca Maestri said on an earnings call that confirmed an earlier report by the Nikkei Asian Review.
