Apple to return more cash to investors as profits soar


Technology giant Apple sold 61.1 million iPhones in the first three months of 2015, driving profit up 33% from a year earlier.

The firm reported a 13.6 billion dollars profit, with revenue up 27% to 58 billion dollars.

Sales in greater China leapt 71% to 16.8 billion dollars, outpacing those in the US for the first time, and helping to drive the sharp profit rise.

Apple also said it would ramp up its share-buying programme, returning 200 billion dollars to investors, up from 130 billion dollars.
