Apple sold 20.34 million iPhones and 9.25 million iPads in the last three months, according the manufacturer's Q3 earnings report.

The company's net income rose to $7.31bn (£4.6bn) for the quarter, up 125 per cent year-on-year – its best ever performance.

"We sold every iPad we could make," said chief financial officer Peter Oppenheimer, as reported by Venturebeat.

"Sales of the iPad 2 have absolutely been a frenzy," added COO Tim Cook, before insisting it was finally beginning to be able to meet demand for the latest iteration of its best-selling tablet.

"As we stepped into July, we have been able to increase the supply further, and some SKUs in some countries are at a supply-demand balance," he explained. "This is a good sort of problem to have."
