Apple's enormous cash pile shrunk for the first time in seven quarters.
The Cupertino, California-based company said its cash pile shrunk to $231.5 billion in the fiscal third quarter, down $1.4 billion from the previous quarter.

The tech giant, however, reported earnings that beat Wall Street expectations on Tuesday as it sold more iPhones than expected.
The news follows investor concern over whether Apple can keep up the parade of hit devices that have floated the company's prosperity since the iPod rolled out 15 years ago.
