Apple's revenue generated by the iOS ecosystem will exceed $ 1 trillion sometime this year, according to an analyst.
By mid 2017 the company is expected to have sold about 1.2 trillion iPhones, while the collective sale of all iOS devices will exceed 1.75 trillion units.
To put this figure in perspective, keep in mind that Microsoft surpassed $ 1 trillion in total revenue accumulated last May. This means that iOS devices have done almost as much as Microsoft sales to date.
Based on current trends, cumulative sales of iOS devices, including iPhone, iPad, iPod, Apple Watch and Apple TV, are expected to exceed 2 trillion units by the end of 2018.
It is believed that by mid-2017, the Cupertino company will have generated about $ 980 billion in hardware sales, plus another $ 100 billion in related services, such as sales in the App Store. This does not include the money that Apple has paid to iOS developers, which now exceeds $ 50 billion.
On the other hand, consumers are now more likely to abandon cheaper Android devices to get an iPhone. Apple has previously confirmed that it is seeing more people switching to iPhone today than ever before.
On the other hand, you also have a very optimistic look at the many Apple products that are sold along with iOS devices, such as Apple Watch and its accessories, Apple Pencil and recent AirPods.
Everything seems to indicate that the company Cupertino is profiling to be the protagonist of a successful year, and even more so in the year of the tenth anniversary of the iPhone.
