Apple iPhones sold more in 2011 than all previous years combined

Apple announced at the presentation of the latest quarterly figures an impressive growth. Compared to last year, the 142 percent growth, although growth rates were on the iPhone even higher: 183 percent. With over 20 million units sold is about huge numbers. If you look at the overall picture for 2011, then it looks promising: it is Apple's most successful year that the iPhone is concerned.

This year, more iPhones sold than all previous years combined. Student Matt Richman argues: "Of the 25.09 million iPhones were sold in 2009 was 35.8 percent have gone to Apple's first and second quarter sales. In 2010 it was 36.1 percent. You assume that the figures in the first two quarters are indicative for the rest of the year, so you can roughly calculate how many iPhones Apple will sell throughout the year. You will then at about 108.3 million. There is however a difference: in all previous years, the new iPhone in June / July are available, but this year is not the case. Apple would offer a tremendous growth spurt the summer after it, so the figure of 108.3 million amply surpassed.
In presenting the quarterly results, Apple announced that an important "product transitory" is to come in September.
