Apple CEO Tim Cook announced during the company's quarterly conference call that it sold its 1 billionth iOS device last quarter. According to Apple, the company sold 34,000 iPhones every hour, 24 hours a day for the entire quarter. The company sold 74.5 million iPhones last quarter, setting a new record.

Cook also noted that the iPhone 6 was the most popular iPhone last quarter (compared to the iPhone 6 Plus). Additionally, some geographies preferred the iPhone 6 Plus whereas some preferred the iPhone 6.

Both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have been widely successful. Apple planned an aggressive international launch, and the company noted that they just recently reached supply-demand balance in January.

Cook remained optimistic about the future of the iPhone, noting that only a small fraction of the iPhone user base has upgraded to the new iPhones. The current iPhone lineup also experienced the highest Android switch-rate compared to any other iPhone launch (more people switched to Android during this iPhone launch than ever before).

Because if they lower the price, they will make less billions. And why would they want to, if it's working? I'm just saying... people gotta stop thinking that companies are their friends, and realise that it's just business. That's why being a "fanboy" is just retarded. Buy what you like, no matter the brand.
