This morning, Apple CEO Tim Cook celebrated the one billionth iPhone, holding it aloft at an employee event in Cupertino, California. Cook said:
”iPhone has become one of the most important, world-changing and successful products in history. It’s become more than a constant companion. iPhone is truly an essential part of our daily life and enables much of what we do throughout the day,” said Cook. “Last week we passed another major milestone when we sold the billionth iPhone. We never set out to make the most, but we’ve always set out to make the best products that make a difference. Thank you to everyone at Apple for helping change the world every day.”
It’s remarkable to think that less than ten years ago, Apple launched the iPhone with 2007 sales of just 3.7 million units.
