However, sales revenues rose and, like earnings, beat Wall Street estimates.
Apple on Thursday reported results for its second financial quarter after the close of trading.
A 9% rise in revenues compared with last year's figure allayed investor fears of a deteriorating macroeconomic environment affecting demand for high-end smartphones and computers. However, Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) shares fell almost 4% on the post-market after Apple's CFO Luca Maestri warned of several problems in the current quarter, including supply constraints related to Covid-19, which could reduce sales by between $4 billion and $8 billion.
Executives at the world's largest tech company also warned that demand in China is declining due to quarantine restrictions related to Covid. Apple CEO Timothy Cook added that the company is "not immune" to supply chain problems.
