Apple says there are over 900 million iPhones in use
This is actually the first time Apple has publicly disclosed this statistic and represents an all-time high for the product. Also, when Apple Watch, iPad, iPod and Mac devices are factored in, the number of Apple devices currently in use grows to a whopping 1.4 billion.
Unlike the iPhone, Apple chose not to break down the active user base of its other products. However, it was confirmed that the total number had grown by over 100 million in the past twelve months. Moreover, the figure is up a very respectable 40% versus 2016 when Apple hit 1 billion active devices.
Moving forward, Apple expects iPhone sales to decline once again this quarter. However, the company could receive a big boost once the April quarter begins. After all, Apple is reportedly working on an updated iPad, an iPad Mini 5, next-gen AirPods and the AirPower charging mat. The company is also expected to announce its long-rumored video streaming service in the near future.
