Between the release of the Galaxy S5 and the HTC One (M8), March has been the month of the Android phone, but while the new leading devices battle each other it out on point, Apple has silently reached one more amazing landmark. Forbes reports that as of this month, Apple has sold its 500 millionth iPhone. This high target was achieved below a year after the company hit 400 million sales in the year 2013.
Considering the never-ending assistance from its followers all over the globe, each remarkable standard becomes a bit more common, but 500 million unit sales are value highlighting. This number also indicates that Apple has managed to move 100 million iPhones in the past 8 months, making as decent an argument as any company has that market saturation isn’t killing high-end Smartphone quite yet.
Apple is now likely to sell 600 million iPhones by the end of its fiscal season, and likely 1 billion before 2017, but it’s hard to predict the market trends this far in progress.
