Apple sold its billionth iPhone last week

ICE Graveyard 27/07/2016 Brian Heater

It would have been a nice piece of information to share during yesterday’s earnings report, but the Tim Cook and co. were clearly too preoccupied with service revenues and R&D. And hey, no better way to kick of a midweek meeting than a little positive news — particularly if you can carrying some of yesterday’s expectation-beating positivity into the following day to help rally the troops.

iPhone sales may have declined for the quarter, but Apple’s still posting big numbers in the smartphone arena. During an employee meeting in Cupertino this morning, Apple’s CEO announced that the company moved its one-billionth phone last week.

“We never set out to make the most, but we’ve always set out to make the best products that make a difference,” Cook said, holding number one-billion aloft for the crowd, during a not especially understated address. “Thank you to everyone at Apple for helping change the world every day.”
