The company’s sales led by the pricey iPhone X pushed quarterly results far beyond Wall Street targets on Tuesday, with subscriptions from App Store, Apple Music and iCloud services bolstering business. The world's most valuable technology company also forecast revenue above expectations for the fall, when it typically launches new iPhone models, reassuring a nervous tech sector that saw sell-offs last week in Facebook, Twitter and Netflix on concerns about their future growth. Apple sold 41.3 million iPhones in the fiscal third quarter, half a million less than expected, but the average iPhone selling price topped expectation by $30, hitting $724, according to FactSet. Apple posted third-quarter revenue of $53.3 billion and profits of $2.34 per share, compared with analyst estimates of $52.3 billion and $2.18 per share, respectively. It also forecast revenue of $60 billion to $62 billion for its fiscal fourth quarter, which will include early sales of soon-to-be-announced phone models, beating the $59.6 billion analysts expected.

Media reports are circulating that the U.S. Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers has issued a ruling in the Epic Games' antitrust lawsuit against Apple Inc's (AAPL) App Store. While the judge ruled that Epic failed to prove Apple engaged in antitrust behavior, she did end some of Apple's restrictions on developers.
The court issued an injunction ordering Apple permanently restrained and enjoined from prohibiting developers from (i) including in their apps and their metadata buttons, external links, or other calls to action that direct customers to purchasing mechanisms, in addition to In-App Purchasing and (ii) communicating with customers through points of contact obtained voluntarily from customers through account registration within the app.
Agents for Apple said:
Today, the court has affirmed what we've known all along: the App Store is not in violation of antitrust law. As the court recognized, "success is not illegal." Apple faces rigorous competition in every segment in which we do business, and we believe customers and developers choose us because our products and services are the best in the world. We remain committed to ensuring the App Store is a safe and trusted marketplace that supports a thriving developer community and more than 2.1 million U.S. jobs, and where the rules apply equally to everyone.
Agents for Epic were less enthusiastic with CEO Tim Sweeney suggesting via Twitter that the ruling “isn’t a win for developers or for consumers.”
Epic will need to pay Apple $3.7 million for unpaid commissions on Fortnite ingame purchases that have accrued since the dispute began.

Agents for Apple Inc. are reporting that they have patched a security flaw in the Messages app across all of the firms devices. They further confirmed that the flaw could be exploited if a user on a vulnerable device received a “maliciously crafted” PDF file. The malware didn’t require victims to engage with the file. Receiving it was enough to infect their devices.
Security researchers say the flaw was actively exploited by an Israel-based organization known as NSO Group. The flaw allowed hackers using NSO’s Pegasus security tool to gain access to Apple devices.
The NSO Group has been the subject of criticism after its spyware was discovered on the phones of activists and journalists critical of repressive regimes. NSO Group has insisted that the spyware is intended to be used to fight terrorism and crime, not to aid in human rights abuses. In response to the Apple news, agents for the group said “NSO Group will continue to provide intelligence and law enforcement agencies around the world with life saving technologies to fight terror and crime.”
