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.

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.
