Over 1 Billion Active iPhones
Although Apple sold its billionth iPhone almost four years ago, this quarter marks the first time that there are actually over 1 billion iPhones in active use.
Naturally, sales of iPhones don’t translate to how many are currently being used by customers, since of course not everybody who buys an iPhone is a new iPhone user, so having a billion devices actually being actively in use is a huge milestone — since very few people have more than one active iPhone, that means it’s safe to say that over 1/8th of the population of the planet are iPhone users.
The last time Apple reported the number of active iPhones was back in 2019, when it surpassed 900 million active iPhone users. Factoring in Apple’s entire device ecosystem, the company also hit a new overall record, reaching 1.65 billion active devices worldwide, although in this case, there’s likely quite a bit of overlap between iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch users.
