iPhone sales by model – additional information

The iPhone, one of Apple’s most successful products, was a breakthrough product for the smartphone industry and is a dominant product in the market. Since the introduction of its first generation in 2007, Apple sold more than 820 million iPhones worldwide. The iPhone 5S is the most popular iPhone model, as around 125 million people in the world use this device. The iPhone 6 has the second highest number of users amongst all models, 85 million, closely followed by the iPhone 5 with 80 million users worldwide.

Around 73 million iPhones were shipped worldwide in the fourth quarter of 2014. The two newest models, iPhone 6 and 6s, accounted for about 80 percent of all shipments. In the same fiscal quarter, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C and iPhone 4S shipments were projected to amount to 14.7 million units together. Apple’s fourth fiscal quarter corresponds to the third calendar quarter, as the company closes its balance by the end of September. Considering the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6s were both released in September of 2014, the statistic above presents the figures of the model’s introduction to the consumer market.

With a successful introduction to the market, the sales of the iPhone 6 and 6s had a direct impact on Apple’s revenue. In the fourth fiscal quarter of 2014, iPhone sales generated around 24 billion U.S. dollars in revenues for the company, accounting for 56 percent of Apple’s revenue. In the first quarter of 2015, iPhone’s share of Apple’s revenue increased to almost 69 percent, generating over 51 billion U.S. dollars in revenues for the company.
