To put Apple’s growth in perspective let’s take a couple minutes to review this infographic on Apple’s sales for the iPhone and iPad in 2011. The sales of iPhone and iPad have been fair enough and has been presented in the infographic.
The iPhone is Apple’s most successful product to date. Since it was first introduced in 2008 Apple has sold more than 200 million iPhones. To put that number in perspective, it is only 13 million short of the number of cars sold in the US since 2008. The iPhone alone is responsible for 40% of Apple’s revenue in 2011, and one of the most successful technology devices in terms of sales in the history of computing.
The iPad is also one of the most popular personal computing devices on the market. With the release of the newest iPad Apple sold 3 million devices in the first 72 hours it was available. That works out to be 694 iPads every minute or 11 iPads per second.
