April 24, 2014 Update: Apple released their quarterly earnings report last night, giving us a number of new statistics to ponder.
I also broke this post out into 3 posts. The original post for all Apple stats was getting a bit cumbersome and tough to navigate as it went over 100 stats. Hopefully, this new format will help you find the stat you are looking for much quicker.
Here are the new Apple statistic pages:
Original Post: Today’s “By the Numbers” post is a bit of a deviation from what you may be used to seeing here. Rather than looking at social networks, apps and services, I am looking at a company that offers a little bit of everything to the digital world. Of course, I am referring to Apple.

After all, if it weren’t for Apple, half the stuff I give you stats on probably wouldn’t exist.
Apple has truly revolutionized the world of digital marketing through its innovative hardware and software solutions, so I thought it would be fun to take a look at just how gigantic their global reach is. Here are a few Apple statistics and facts that I was able to dig up…

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these stats come from Apple’s own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100% accurate.
