has been a sales juggernaut since its launch. And a new study from
research firm Strategy Analytics seems to drive that point home.
Since the iPhone’s launch in June 2007, Apple has generated cumulative revenues of $150 billion,
according to Strategy Analytics. Neil Shah, senior analyst at Strategy
Analytics, told CNET in a phone conversation today that the number only
includes hardware sales. Accessories, apps, and software and services,
which typically represent 3 percent to 5 percent of Apple’s iPhone
revenue each quarter, were factored out.
Moving on to hardware units, Strategy Analytics said that 250 million iPhones have shipped globally.
