PYMNTS Daily Data Dive: Apple $1T In Sight

Get ready for some rather large numbers.

This could very well be the year Apple hits $1 trillion in revenue from iOS.

At least 1.2 billion iPhone units have been sold in the last 10 years, and the combined total unit sales of iOS devices — including iPod touch, the iPad, the Apple Watch and Apple TV— will reach 1.75 billion over the same period. The latter group will likely top 2 billion units by the end of 2018.

If current predictions hold, revenue from iOS on product sales should hit $980 billion about halfway through 2017.

There are 17.5 trillion iPhone sessions annually, meaning 48 billion sessions per day.

Apple has also brought in more than $100 billion in terms of sales from its services sector, including apps, subscriptions and media.
