The number of active Apple gadgets has exceeded 1.5 billion units. The head of the company Tim Cook said this in a conversation with Reuters.
Active devices are devices that receive certain updates. Cook noted that Apple currently has 1.65 billion gadgets – iPhone, iPad, Mac and others. A year ago, their number was 1.5 billion pieces.
The head of the American corporation also disclosed the number of active iPhones – more than a billion units. In 2019, Apple recorded just over 900 million smartphone units. Also Tim Cook said that the number of users of paid services and subscriptions is about 620 million people. This is more than the company planned to collect by the end of 2020 – 600 million users.
Apple previously released a report for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2021, which ended on December 26, 2020. The company recorded a record increase in revenue, which for the first time exceeded $ 100 billion.
In the fall, analysts said Apple had sold over a billion iPhones by the end of the year. “13 years after its launch, the iPhone remains the most popular and best-selling smartphone,” the experts noted. They estimate that Apple attracts 20 to 30 percent of users to its ecosystem every year.
