How many iPhones have been sold in 2018?

In the fourth quarter of 2018 alone, Apple sold 46.89 million iPhones worldwide, a figure which slightly outpaced its sales from the corresponding quarter of 2017. In entire 2018, 217.72 million iPhones were shipped worldwide. Apple typically releases at least one new version of its iPhone each year, a strategy which has helped the company consistently pull in quarterly sales figures in the tens of millions.

iPhone’s popularity



As of 2019, estimates suggest that the United States is home to around 266 million smartphone users, cementing the country’s place as a major regional market within the industry. Of those U.S. based smartphone consumers, over 45 percent are Apple iPhone users. This market share figure speaks to the iPhone’s massive popularity within its domestic market, but how does the product fare internationally? At a global scale, Apple’s flagship product faces increased competition, especially from established Asian technology firms like Samsung, Huawei, and OPPO. Despite this, the iPhone has consistently ranked among the most popular devices in the world since its initial release in June 2007.

Apple products

Although the iPhone is the company’s biggest revenue generator by far, Apple offers a multitude of products across a variety of consumer electronics categories. The company’s products include everything from laptops to smartwatches, while additionally offering tech-related services such as an online payment platform and cloud storage.
