Apple iPhone activations surge on Verizon
Carriers are the outlet selling the most iPhones - whether Apple likes it or not - and in this case, it should since Verizon Wireless has just announced that sales of the iPhone have surged on it. Verizon activated an impressive 3.9 million iPhones in the second quarter of the year, according to analyst Walter Piecyk.

The figure is up a whopping 44% from iPhone sales in the same period last year. We are also seeing that once again Apple’s device alone outsells all Android and Windows Phones combined on Verizon.

Amidst concerns for declining iPhone sales, this is a reassuring piece of data for Apple. The company is strong in the United States, but is far behind Android in the rest of the world. To counter that global trend, Apple is expected to launch an affordable iPhone with a plastic shell and vivid colors.
