Apple just sold its 500 millionth iPhone!

In 2008, an analyst at the Charter Equity Research informed New York Times that Apple may not be able to sell a colossal number of iPhones given that its competitors, such as Nokia were doing far better. The initial goal of Steve Jobs was to sell 10 million iPhone when the analyst, Edward Snyder was interviewed. Snyder further remarked that Nokia had sold more phones than Apple was able to in a week. In retrospect, when one evaluates Snyder’s comment it seems that he was completely wrong! Steve Jobs had estimated it correctly when Apple had sold 12.8 million units.

Eventually in February 2011, Apple was able to sell its 100 millionth iPhone. This marked four years since the first iPhone went on sale. A year later, Apple’s flagship phone was able to reach sales worth of 200 million. Before 2012 was about to end (and the world allegedly), Apple reached sales of up to 300 million units.

Following this, Apple consistently attained success through its iPhone as July 2013 marked the sale of the 400 millionth Apple iPhone. As of now, in March 2014 estimates show that the sales of Apple iPhones have gone up to 500 million units- an astoundingly impressive figure. At the end of the current year, it is even expected that sales may 600 million units.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
