Apple announced its Q1 2015 results earlier today. The numbers came in at $74.6 billion in revenue, with shipments of 74.5 million iPhones. Apple CEO Tim Cook stated on the conference call that company sold over 34,000 iPhone smartphones “every hour, 24 hours a day, every day of the quarter.”
Cook noted that these record results were “simply phenomenal… It was truly a momentous quarter for iOS.” In addition to these mind-blowing stats, Cook also announced that Apple successfully shipped its billionth iOS device, which includes iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touch devices.
“On November 22, we shipped our one billionth iOS device. It was a Space Grey 64GB iPhone 6 Plus, which we’ve saved here at Apple. One billion devices is an almost unfathomable milestone and we are all incredibly proud to be a part of it,” said Cook.
iOS, which was originally called iPhone OS, was officially unveiled with the iPhone in 2007, then later introduced on iPads, iPod Touch, and soon the Apple Watch.
