Apple iPhone – additional information

The first generation of Apple’s iPhone was introduced in 2007, bringing innovative features such as a touch screen interface and a virtual keyboard to a broader audience. Considered by many as a revolutionary product, the Apple iPhone drove growth for the smartphone market. Since its introduction to the consumer market, Apple has released eight generations of the product, along with new features and updates. The iPhone runs on Apple’s own mobile operating system iOS, the second most popular smartphone operating system in the market. In 2016, the iPhone made Apple the second-largest smartphone vendor in the world, with a global market share of almost 15% percent.

The iPhone has changed Apple’s business dramatically. iPhone sales have risen strongly over the years, from around 1.4 million iPhones sold in 2007 to more than 201 million units worldwide in 2016. In total, Apple has sold more than one billion iPhones worldwide from 2007 to 2016. In the first quarter of 2017, iPhone sales accounted for more than 69 percent of Apple’s total revenue, generating more than 54 billion U.S. dollars in revenues.

Partly thanks to the iPhone’s success, Apple ranks amongst the most valuable brands in the world. The technology company has achieved this position by combining technical innovation and minimalistic design. Apple’s success translates into strong brand loyalty, as well as into its revenue growth. In ten years, Apple’s revenue increased from 8 billion U.S. dollars in 2004 to more than 215 billion in 2016.
