700 million Apple iPhones sold, enjoys 49% year-over-year growth

At its “Spring forward” event today, Apple boasted it sold its 700 millionth iPhone smartphone. In fact, according to Tim Cook, iPhone sales are surpassing global smartphone sales rate on a year-over-year basis.

iPhones are growing 49% year-over-year, while the rest of the industry does so at 26%. According to analyst company KGI, Apple sold over 73 million iPhone 6 units just last quarter.

Cook didn’t share any other sales data for iPad tablets or MacBook laptops. It’ll be interesting to check some official data how many iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones the company has sold, but alas.
