Research firm Strategy Analytics estimates that since its launch in June 2007, Apple's iPhone has generated a massive $150 billion in revenue!
This of course encompasses every iPhone launched to date, including the original iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, and combined shipments in excess of 250 million units. These numbers come from the mouth of Neil Shah, Senior Analyst at Strategy Analytics and Neil Mawston, Executive Director at Strategy Analytics.
“The iPhone portfolio has become a huge generator of cash and profit for Apple. A quarter of a billion iPhones have been shipped cumulatively worldwide in the first five years since launch and Apple reaches its fifth birthday at the top of its game,” said Mawston.
