Apple has shipped 1.2 billion iPhones in the past 10 years

According to the latest research from Strategy Analytics, Apple has shipped 1.2 billion iPhones worldwide cumulatively in the past 10 years. Total global iPhone revenues have reached three quarters of a trillion dollars since the first model was launched in 2007.

“Apple first launched the iPhone in the United States in 2007,” says Neil Mawston, Executive Director at Strategy Analytics. “Apple has shipped 1.2 billion iPhones worldwide cumulatively between 2007 and the second quarter of 2017. The iPhone is one of the world’s best-selling consumer electronics of all time.”

Ken Hyers, director at the research group, adds that Strategy Analytics estimates the smartphone has cumulatively generated $760 billion of global revenue for Apple between 2007 and the quarter two 2017. Revenues continue to grow and the research group predicts the iPhone will become the world’s first trillion-dollar smartphone by the end of 2018.
