Apple Lawsuit vs Samsung Reveals Total iOS Device Sales

Yesterday it was revealed Apple had launched a lawsuit on Friday against Samsung for ‘copying’ the iPhone and iPad. Samsung as already responded against the suit, and will defend vigorously.

With the release of that lawsuit, total sales numbers of iOS devices were also revealed. Asymco provides a breakdown of iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch sales, as of March 2011:

  • On page 4:

“As of March 2011, more than 108 million iPhones had been sold worldwide”
“By March 2011, Apple had sold over 60 million (iPod touch) units.”

  • On page 5:

“By March 2011, Apple sold over 19 million iPads”.

Add up the totals and you’ll get: 187,000,000. Incredible. Now imagine if you were a developer: would you target the App Store, Android Market, or App World?
