Apple has now sold over 500 million iPhones, taking less than 7 years to do so, reports Forbes.

Apple reached 400 million in iPhone sales around the end of July, 2013. Entering this quarter Apple had sold 472 million iPhones. Depending on how well sales are going this quarter, it is estimated that Apple would have sold its 500 millionth iPhone on around March 8th.

Analysts are mixed, with Katy Huberty of Morgan Stanley looking for 42 million as Forbes’ contributor Chuck Jones noted and the consensus forecast around 38 million. The consensus would have placed the milestone sale around March 8 given that entering the quarter Apple had sold 472 million iPhones. So even if it proves a bit high as it did last quarter, we’ve crossed the point where it’s safe to assume that Apple has sold 500 million smartphones in less than 7 years. And the most recent 100 million took somewhere between 2-6 weeks less than the previous 100 million did.

Notably, Apple is expected to cross the 600 million mark by the end of the year with help from the much anticipated iPhone 6.

And you forgot to mention your 22,999,998 of them are tired of the same plastic toys setting themselves on fire after that one time burning down the apartment, oh the mind control some of us woke up to and ended it, but not you, can't learn your lesson huh, especially the wannabe smart ass herd, wow, Tony, you, apple junk, and any other defending bull shit having nothing to give a damn about reality. That proves a total why you try to outpace apple when their is two different areas with USA selling more in their area because boreans are trying to support your fan club. Samsung-Samshits with the fire coming out of those black holes in a chain reaction, how far will they still try to be iPhone in an infinite loop up your ass.

K and the other moron, thats using my name. You are stupid we get you and yet you still continue which explains your a gay guy, which you excepted in the other remarks. Using a fake Tony name to get peoples attention. You wanna compare f*ck face lets compare it. Go here and educate yourself: Then when you look at that look how many iPhone 5S are sold, and look at how many iPhone 5 has been sold, 89,000,000. When the S4 came out it did 40-50 million in the first 3 months, not over 1-2 years for the 5. Secondly your stupid 5S (5 SHIT) only sold 6,500,000, and your stupid 5C which is 5C CRAP, sold 2,600,000. Which is CRAP, the S4 sold 40-50 million the first couple of months, unlike apple that sold close to 100 million in a year and half time for the iPhone 5 and even worse is the 5S... and the 5C even less. Samsung S4 sold way more , do the math your a moron... HAHAHA..
