Apple announced an impressive milestone this morning, having recently sold its billionth iPhone. Apple CEO, Tim Cook, announced the milestone, stating: 

"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."

To put things in perspective, a PCmag article citing research from Gartner Dataquest mentioned that it took 27 years for the billionth PC to be sold!
