Apple is one of the world's most well-known consumer electronics manufacturer. The Cupertino-based firm shot to prominence with the release of the iPod back in 2001, which was soon followed by newer generations of the device, including the iPod Touch. Apple then proceeded to launch the company's first smartphone, the iPhone, and then their first tablet computer, the iPad.
Apple has celebrated countless milestones as sales of these devices pushed past hundreds of millions worldwide. As of 2011, over 300 million iPods, 100 million iPhones, and 15.4 iPads have been sold. And the numbers aren't slowing down anytime soon.
The tech giant has recently unveiled its Q2 2012 financial reports, and the numbers are staggering. In this period alone, 35.1 million iPhones, 11.8 million iPads, 7.7 million iPods, and 4 million Macs have been sold. If you do the math, that means a total of 58.6 million devices were sold during the financial quarter's 91-day period.
Breaking these massive figures down, Apple recorded sales of 645,000 devices per day, with 385,000 and 130,000 of these being iPhones and iPads, respectively.
By taking a closer look at the stats, you'll notice the following trends: iPod sales are declining, Mac sales are pretty steady, and iPhone and iPad sales are continuously on the rise. But then, you probably expected that to be the case already, anyway.
