Back in 2007, the very first iPhone was launched. That time, Apple was known only for its desktop computers. But, with the very first iPhone, it gave a hint of what the company can do! The company has launched iPhones namely iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone SE. And Yes, not to forget this year’s iPhones! Anyways, today Apple completed a milestone which is really amazing. 1 Billion ! Yes, 1 Billion iPhones have been sold so far by Apple. Amazingly, Apple hit this milestone in less than 10 years which is really incredible. :)
WHAT THE COMPANY HAS TO SAY ABOUT THIS 1 BILLION iPHONES MARK?
This news actually came from the official Apple website and here is what the company’s CEO, Tim Cook has to say about this milestone –
“iPhone has become one of the most important, world-changing and successful products in history. It’s become more than a constant companion. iPhone is truly an essential part of our daily life and enables much of what we do throughout the day,” said Cook. “Last week we passed another major milestone when we sold the billionth iPhone. We never set out to make the most, but we’ve always set out to make the best products that make a difference. Thank you to everyone at Apple for helping change the world every day.”
Undoubtedly iPhones have proved their worth in the smartphone market that is mostly covered by Android. It is really incredible that a company which uses its own OS, own processor and almost everything its own, sold 1 Billion devices in less than 10 Years. Apple was a bit unlucky as iPhone sales drop for second straight quarter. But , as we all know, Apple knows how to recover. :D
