Tim Cook revealed the on billionth iPhone was sold last week.

Apple, in an understated press release, revealed that the iPhone has now reached one billion units sold.

It’s a massive number whichever way you look at it, with no other single mobile product from one manufacturer able to match it.

Philip Morris, editor of Apple-focused iCreate Magazine summed up the news by saying: “You read a lot of negative stuff about iPhone – slumping sales and dissatisfied customers – but this news puts it all in perspective, iPhone is arguably the greatest invention ever, one that has revolutionised the way we live every day.

“It’s genuinely hard to imagine a world without iPhone, and that’s some achievement considering it’s less than 10 years since its release. If Apple crack markets in Asia – and Tim Cook has been very positive about his company’s chances in India, for example – expect that figure to keep rising and rising.”

And there were plenty more people on social media trying to come to terms with the size of the figure as well, including Apple’s own executives.

The size of the iPhone as a standalone business was also pointed out and how on its own the phone can overshadow entire companies.

While another analyst pointed out that the iPhone might just be the best selling product of any kind, ever.

Yes, even bigger than Harry Potter.
