    Apple CEO Tim Cook has helped lead his company into record earnings.

    Apple's second-quarter profit jumped 94 percent pushed largely by the continued strong sales of iPads and iPhones.

    The Cupertino-based technology company announced its second-quarter earnings on a conference call Tuesday.

    For the latest quarter ending in March, Apple said it earned a profit of $11.62 billion, or $12.30 a share, up from $5.98 billion, or $6.40 a share, from the previous year.

    The company's revenue also increased 59 percent to $39.19 billion.

    The earnings come on the heels of a blistering first quarter for Apple, where the company hit new sales and profits records.

    Apple said it sold 35.1 million iPhones last quarter and it sold 11.8 million iPads.
