Apple Has Sold More Than 1.5 Billion iDevices

Apple has crossed a major milestone. Apple has sold a little more that 1,5 billion units of iPhone, iPad and iPod combined since the release of the iPhone in 2007 .

Specifically, Apple sold:

  • 896,548,000 iPhone
  • 308,150,000 iPad
  • 297,828,000 iPod
  • Total: 1,502,526,000 devices

This is significant. This is like 3 out of 10 persons in the world have one iDevice.

Apple released its first iPad in April 2010

Jobs unveiled the iPhone to the public in January, 2007

And the iPod was released in 2001.

It looks like that Apple will sell its one billionth iPhone in a few months.

In 2015, Apple stopped reporting iPod sales.
