Apple Insider: In recognition of the five-year anniversary of the introduction of the iPhone, Strategy Analytics put out a new set of numbers on the smartphone. They estimate that Apple has sold 250 million iPhones since then for a total revenue of $150 billion. "The iPhone portfolio has become a huge generator of cash and profit for Apple," said Neil Mawston, executive director at Strategy Analytics. "A quarter of a billion iPhones have been shipped cumulatively worldwide in the first five years since launch and Apple reaches its fifth birthday at the top of its game."
