Apple announced today to Jim Dalrymple of The Loop that's it's sold more than 100 million units of the iPod touch since its first appearance in 2007, and while that's an impressive number by any stretch of the imagination, it's a testament to the strengths and popularity of the iPhone and related smartphones that it's not much higher.
Verizon Wireless may have boasted 3.2 million iPhone activations in its first-quarter 2012 results last week, but onetime exclusive carrier AT&T is still the king, announcing 4.3 million units sold for Apple’s handset in the first three months of this year.
Wow! What a weekend for the new iPad, which Apple announced today moved three million units in 10 countries around the world. But new iPad owners aren’t the only ones happy today -- investors liked the sound of Cupertino’s new dividend and share repurchase plan announced early this morning, which is pushing the company ever higher. How high can they go? Is it possible for what goes up to actually stay up? These are questions we may never have the answers to -- but have a look at the news for Monday, March 19 and you be the judge.
If you still think the iPhone 4S is underwhelming, you may actually be alone in that opinion. Apple has just announced that the new handset racked up more than four million handsets sold in the first weekend -- and they’re just getting started.
So much for underwhelming! Apple announced on Monday morning that the new iPhone 4S has already topped one million preorders -- and that’s just in the first 24 hours. It may look like an iPhone 4 and quack like an iPhone 4, but the iPhone 4S is anything but fowl.
Ever wonder exactly how many downloads Apple is serving up from the App Store each and every day? While we can’t tell you those exact numbers, the company has issued a press release on Thursday touting a few new figures, including that the virtual storefront has now served up more than 15 billion downloads.
AT&T already announced their quarterly results earlier this week, throwing cold water on theories that the loss of their iPhone exclusivity would hurt them. Now rival carrier Verizon has divulged their own numbers for the same period, with their CDMA-based iPhone making up about a third of Apple’s U.S. handset sales for the quarter.
On Wednesday, Apple announced their financial results for the quarter ending March 26 (technically their fiscal second quarter). There was little bad news to go around, especially with the company’s largest non-holiday quarterly revenue (and earnings) to date.
If AT&T was sweating over losing their iPhone exclusivity back in January, they can rest easy now. According to their first-quarter financials, the carrier sold 5.5 million smartphones -- and 60 percent of them were from Apple.
Apple CEO Steve Jobs hit the stage to a thunderous round of applause and a standing ovation at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts on Wednesday, launching into updates on the company’s recent sales milestones.
