    Default Apple Expected to Ship over 1 Billion iOS Devices by 2015


    The increased projection of iOS device sales has Apple on pace to reach one billion devices by late 2014 or early 2015 according to an analysis by Horace Dediu of Asymco. Dediu projected iOS sales through iTunes account growth, which is one of the many ways to measure sales. Just last week, Apple announced it currently has 435 million total active iTunes accounts.

    According to Dediu’s calculations, Apple is currently adding about 12 million new iTunes accounts every month. He found that this growth pattern mirrors corresponding growth in iOS usage. He admitted the numbers are “not a very precise forecast,” but they do suggest that Apple will sell a total of one billion iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch) by late 2014 or early 2015.

    It was revealed last week by Apple CEO Tim Cook that his company has sold a total of 400 million iOS devices through the month of June. That means from the first iOS devices sold beginning mid-2007 with the launch of the first iPhone till now, the Cupertino California company has managed to sell a total of 400 million iOS devices. If the trends tracked by Dediu prove to be accurate, Apple will more than double the total number of iOS devices sold in the next two years.

    Of course they will. Thats still 4 more iPhones away so the iPhone 5 will be deleted by 2015 and all the fanboys would've upgraded 4 or 5 times by then.
