Steve Jobs got on stage today to announce iPhone OS 4.0, and along with it he said that Apple has sold over 50 million iPhones. The last time Apple gave an update as to the number of iPhones they sold was on January 25, 2010 when they published their Q1 2010 fiscal results. As of that date they had sold 42,482,000 iPhones, so some quick subtraction says that in the 2 months and 2 weeks that have passed they’ve sold over 7,518,000 iPhones.
Will they report selling more than 8,000,000 iPhones during their next conference call, sceduled to take place April 20th?
73 days between 25.01.2010 and 08.04.2010, so that’s about 102,986 iPhones per day. If that rate is maintained, and there are 85 days between 25.01.2010 and 20.04.2010, then you’re looking at 8,753,810 or roughly the same amount of iPhones they sold in the previous fiscal quarter.
That’s a lot of iPhones.
Update: I’m retarded. The numbers that came out on January 25, 2010 are from iPhones sold until December 26, 2009. So here’s the new maths: 103 days between 26.12.2009 and 08.04.2010, so that’s about 72,990 iPhones per day. Assuming that rate is constant, and assuming March 26, 2010 is the last day of fiscal Q2, therefore 90 days between the 26th of December and the 26th of March, then Apple should report selling 6,569,100 iPhones in their Q2 2010 results due to be published in a little less than 2 weeks.
Don’t blog at midnight kids, it clouds your mind.
