Apple sold how many iPhones in 2015 so far?

Evil apple watch

iPhones and iPads and MacBooks, OH MY! We all know Apple products are popular, and getting even more popular every day. Gone are the days when I’d get weird looks for being an Apple fan – now I’m totally mainstream. I knew iPhones were massively popular, but even I’m amazed and a little appalled at these numbers.

Apple has released its Q2 earnings for 2015 – their second quarter ends March 28th. So, how’d they do? Well, they saw quarterly revenue of $58 billion and quarterly net profit of $13.6 billion. Let’s just pause and let that sink in. In three months, Apple made $13.6 billion. That’s a whole lot of cash. 69% of that came from overseas sales. But what were they selling?

Well, in that period the company sold 61.2 million iPhones. This is particularly impressive if compared to last year’s numbers when they “only” sold 43.7 million iPhones in the same period. iPad sales have continued to slump, but this could be due to lack of any major updates, as well as some people shifting to the iPhone 6 Plus. CEO Tim Cook said during the earnings call:

We are thrilled by the continued strength of iPhone, Mac and the App Store, which drove our best March quarter results ever. We’re seeing a higher rate of people switching to iPhone than we’ve experienced in previous cycles, and we’re off to an exciting start to the June quarter with the launch of Apple Watch.

While the numbers don’t include the launch of the Apple Watch, the demand for that wearable is insanely high despite critics panning it. Cook explained that they actually need to ramp up production as demand is greater than supply at the moment.

The numbers are great for Apple and sort of mind-boggling. How many millions of iPhones can you sell? Does everyone on Earth have an iPhone? It’s certainly starting to look that way. At this rate, it’s hard to even compare to the other players on the market. No wonder the App Store is so important for mobile game developers – that market share is simply beyond compare.

    Hahahahaha. I have a new iPhone 6. Now my collection is a 3,4,5 and now the 6 all with their boxes. Seems that they won’t be worth anything any time soon. Thought I would collect them, but it will take ages for them to not be available and worth something.

    I thought that since iPhone has become part of everyone’s life, Apple should have not problem in secure an profit in the market?
