Steve Jobs, held the first ever iPhone in his hands on 9th January 2007, at that time he wouldn’t have imagined of one billionth units sold out. Now, at the end of 2015 about 896 million iPhones are already sold out and Apple finds itself in a position where it is about to sell its one billionth iPhone device soon. As per analysts, if the Cupertino’s giant sells 50 million units in the first quarter and then another 44 million phones in the second quarter then the company will most probably enter just 10 million short from the billionth sales.
Until the iPhone SE, which is the upcoming 4 inch smartphone of the company suddenly reverses the course and take off, Apple will most likely sell its one billionth iPhone in July. This is the time just three months before Apple’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus get launched in the market.
Over this, Wall Street analysts are betting that one billionth iPhone might get rung up on 20th July this year. Also, Apple sold its one millionth iOS device in November 2014, which was a great victory for the company.
The Apple iPhone sold 2,70000 units in the first two days after their release and then the sales hit 1 million record by the month of September 2007. Apple’s iPhone 3G reported sales of one million units in the very first week of its release, which shocked the industry analysts. This can be compared to the 13 million sales record made by Apple’s iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus models sold in the opening weekend of September last year.
