Contextualizing Apple’s incredible iPhone sales figures

Tue, Jan 24, 2012


Apple reported yet another blowout quarter this afternoon, thanks in large part to over 37 million in iPhone sales.

The figure in and of itself is certainly impressive, but when you contextualize the figure while looking back at Apple’s annual iPhone sales since 2007, we can really see the extent to which Apple’s iPhone is a freight train that Android simply can’t stop.

In 2009, Apple sold more iPhones than it did in 2007 and 2008 combined. In 2010, Apple sold more iPhones than it did in 2007, 2008, and 2009 combined. Last year, Apple sold 93.1 million iPhones, slightly more than it did in in 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010 combined. The pattern continued.

Hot damn.
