Apple announce Has Sold Its 500 Millionth iPhone
Apple loves to celebrate their achievements, there is nothing wrong. Almost a year ago marked the 50 billionth download an application from the App Store, and in January – the 30th anniversary of the Mac. But last achievement was ignored. Apple sells 500 millionth iPhone.
The first iPhone was released in 2007 and certainly changed the world of mobile phones. Then Steve Jobs put the target company – selling 10 million units in 2008 to some analysts, this figure was unattainable. Edward Snyder, an analyst at Charter Equity Research, expressed its doubts, adding that Nokia has sold more phones in a week than Apple in its entire history. For a moment it appeared that it might be right, as the Cupertino company sold only 717,000 phones in the next quarter (currently this figure is achieved within 2 days). But times are changing. Last quarter sold more iPhone- than the total sales of the Nokia Lumia. It should be mentioned that in 2008 sold almost 14 million units iPhone.
In February 2012 the figure reached 200 million, and before the end of the year is the 300-millionth sale. Only eight months later, reaching 400 million suggestive We already know that the company has sold 500 millionth iPhone – an achievement that it took seven years. If iPhone 6 will bring great changes, we can expect the next 100 million to be achieved for even a short period. And when will be the billionth sale? This is expected to happen before 2017.
