Apple announces it sold more than 500 million iOS devices so far
And at the conference call right after announcing the results, Apple’s chief executive Tim Cook had some impressive numbers to share with us - iOS sales have reached 500 million in total.
It was June 2012 when Apple lastly updated us on its iOS device sales and then the figure stood at 400 million. In the last quarter alone, Apple sold a whopping 10 iOS devices each second.
Despite that impressive growth, however, analysts saw sales of 47.8 million iPhones in the past quarter as disappointing and Apple shares fell catastrophically in pre-market trade, down by 10%. Analysts and investors of course have all rights to wonder about what the future will be and they are clearly worried by the thinning profit margins for the world’s largest company. Still, in the present, it’s hard to see a solid reason for those concerns as with over $50 billion in quarterly revenue, Apple looks definitely healthy.
