Apple Sold 172 Million iOS Devices

What a great way to start an important event. Apple’s ‘iPad 3 Launch’ event was held in Sans Francisco at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, where CEO Tim Cook opened up the event expressing his thoughts on company’s efforts for having such an amazing growth it has been in the post-PC era. According to Tim Cook, the company has sold over 172 million iOS devices, which account for 76% of its revenue.

The most noticeable point here is the use of phrase ‘post-PC’ and not ‘mobile’ by Cook. The reason for this is that the company’s iPad is swiftly becoming a PC alternative for those who don’t want or need a desktop setup or for those who often find themselves on business trips away form office and home. It was reported earlier that the number of people owning an iPad device has increased by 74% in Europe year-on-year.

Apple shipped 62 million iOS devices in the last quarter of 2011 – impressive numbers. While Apple has already announced its new iPad, we can expect these numbers to further rise in the coming future. Apple announced that its new iPad will go on sale on March 16 in several countries including US, UK, Australia, Germany, Japan Canada, Switzerland, Hong Kong, Singapore and France.

In addition to new iPad, Apple also announced updates to its Apple TV platform that now seems to work more line one of these ‘post-PC’ devices. The new interface introduced is a part of Apple’s unification process, which is very much identical to other iOS devices

The way Apple is progressing and planning things carefully we can easily assume that the revenues will further go up for the Cupertino-based tech giant in future. However, we have to wait and see what sort of response its new products will receive from the customers.
