In a report on Monday we pointed to CNBC noting that Apple would sell it's one billionth iPhone this week, a positive milestone that Apple's CEO is bound to point out during tomorrow's financial conference. Well, Tim Cook wanted to leave that to a planned event earlier today instead to spread out the good news.
Apple noted in a press release that "At an employee meeting in Cupertino this morning, CEO Tim Cook announced that Apple recently sold the billionth iPhone. 'iPhone has become one of the most important, world-changing and successful products in history. It's become more than a constant companion. iPhone is truly an essential part of our daily life and enables much of what we do throughout the day,' said Cook. 'Last week we passed another major milestone when we sold the billionth iPhone. We never set out to make the most, but we've always set out to make the best products that make a difference. Thank you to everyone at Apple for helping change the world every day.'"
Apple's CEO stated yesterday that "The momentum for all four platforms (iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS) shows the strong relationship Apple enjoys with customers throughout their day and wherever they go. Whether it's at home, in their car, at work and everywhere in between the Apple ecosystem is thriving and growing and our new OS releases this fall will take these great experience to a new level."
Apple's thriving ecosystem is all about driving services, which according to Cook, will help Apple cross a milestone next year by services exceeding 23 billion to become, by itself, the size of a Fortune 100 company.
