Let this infographic tell you exactly how much the iPhone is worth to Apple
Wow, can you imagine it's been 8 years since the original iPhone was announced? It was one of those jaw-dropping moments in technological presentation history that just happen all too rarely! Anyway, there's little we can tell you about the iPhone's history that you don't already know, but here's the thing - our comrades from GadgetValuer passed us along this awesome infographic that details, in lively colors and bold text, just how much of a significance the iPhone has had on Apple's revenue over the years. 

The slides will tell you how the iPhone escalated Apple's revenue, the impact the iPhone had on the stock market, the handset's opening weekend sales over the years, and other interesting facts - some of them having to do with tens of billions of dollars! The infographic uses data by trade-in monitoring websites CompareMyMobile and GadgetValuer, and apart from iPhone-related stuff, there's other valuable things one can learn from their beautiful work.

Check out the infographic and pour yourself one for Apple and company today if you're the drinking type, because the gang at Cupertino did create a landmark device 8 years ago!

Mediocre sound quality! I had a cheap Phillips mp3 which sounded better than my iPod touch 4! No more iPods for me. It's funny how I thought it had great sound quality, but after digging reviews on media players and tested it, it actually has very poor sound quality!

Tell me the model of your Phillips MP3 player and when was the last time you had the iPod Touch 4th gen. I still have it and it has good but not great sound quality.

I had Touch 4 too and I find its audio quality excelltent, not as good as Classics, but it's still awesome, very crisp and clear, when I bought Z3 I instantly noticed how poor its SQ was. Now after all those years, 5S scored amazing results and reviews and Cirrus DAC is still getting better if they made iPod with same chip and with little more voltage it would be killer. And iOS environment, ease of use and outstanding multimedia capabilities are something I couldn't imagine any audio player wouldn't have.

He is probably pushed by reviews. Reviews has nothing to do with how you hear.

Amen. I love Apple's sound characteristics, I find my 4S to be still top performer in audio terms, with my Logitech UE6000 it plays just incredibly good. If 5S is better and 6S will be even better than it then I don't need anything more :P

What model is it? I will put anything iPod had to offer against a Phillips product. The Wolfson DAC in the 5.5G 80GB I had was excellent for warm sounding music with heavy bass tones. The Cirrus DAC used in 6G Classic (including revisions) was more my speed since it wasn't overzealous with EQ adjustments and gave me rich treble. Those are just two examples. Ears are different on every listener, but as an audio enthusiast, I can't rely on cheap products from Phillips. This looks like trolling to me.

Trolling or another "audiophile" who says: deep, overwhelming bass = amazing audio quality That's why so many people claim that Beats offer great audio quality.

I'm a B&O fan myself despite their expense, but I find their quality to be excellent. I have found some cheaper alternatives, but they didn't live up to expectation. I do like Sennheiser for sure. I have bought some of their more affordable headsets and was extremely pleased. I really like older stereo equipment personally, but that would be going off topic.

The iPhone is a phenomenal device and great in its own way with the sales. Hope droids should know that Apple doesn't follow Android's philosophy.

Amazing stats, love those graphs ! Apple watch sales will be an interesting addition to them. I am interested in how the iPhone sales will go up after the introduction of this years big-ass battery iPhone.

Don't ask how much will Apple give to you, ask how much will you give to Apple.

Apple will give a product most people absoluetlly love. How much does that cost ? If you have money why not buy a device you love ? Because it's Apple ?

Hey, I'm not saying the phone sucks. It's a solid phone if that's what your looking for... I just don't like the way they conduct their business, and I'm not going to support them when I'm against it.

I have two tech personalities. Positive side: I agree. If you love something, just buy it. It's your money anyway. Negative side: Why not spend money on a phone with more features? That would be a better decision.
