By the Numbers: 110 Amazing Apple Statistics & Facts

apple statistics

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…

Important Dates in Apple History

Date of Apple founding:

April 1, 1976

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.
