Apple was unsure whether it can make enough new iPhones, Apple Watches, iPads and Mac models it released in recent weeks, Cook told Reuters. But Apple can't avoid the problem forever.

Revenue from Apple's services division, meanwhile, increased by a solid 17% compared to the September quarter of 2017.
