Consumer tech giant Apple easily topped sales and earnings expectations for its latest quarter, earning praise from Wall Street analysts even as shares came under pressure.

Apple reported $1.68 in earnings per share on $111.4 billion in revenue, while analysts surveyed by Refinitiv expected $1.41 in earnings per share and $103.28 billion in revenue. Most of Apple's business lines, including iPhone and services, had higher-than-expected sales, but the stock was down 2.5% in premarket trading.
