Apple now has $192.8 billion cash on hand, according to the company’s fiscal second-quarter earnings report released Thursday. 

That’s down 7.4% from its fiscal first quarter of 2020, when the company reported a $207.06 billion cash pile.

Apple has continuously hosted one of the largest cash piles among U.S. companies, but is facing pressure from the Covid-19 pandemic.  

The company’s retail stores around the world, except in China and one in Korea, are closed until further notice. Still, Apple has continued to launch products in its second quarter amid signs of a global economic slowdown.

Apple reported that its iPhone revenue was down 7% year-over-year, though that was partially covered by a 16% rise in services revenue. Total revenue growth for the quarter decreased to 0.5% from 9% on quarter ago.

“It was a very unique quarter. I’ve never had anything quite like this. I hope to never have it again, but I’m incredibly proud of the company and what was achieved during that period of time,” Apple CEO Tim Cook told CNBC’s Josh Lipton.

Apple shares fell slightly in extended trading after the company reported $58.3 billion in revenue and earnings of $2.55 per share.
