Are you an Android user? You might not be for long.
Topping its own projections, Apple reported today that the iPhone has set a new record for 3rd quarter sales, moving over 47 million units and bringing in over $30 billion in revenue.
During Apple’s Tuesday earnings call, CEO Tim Cook noted that the company has tracked the “highest switcher rate” it has ever seen, with more customers moving from Android to iPhone than ever before. That’s a pretty big deal when there’s really only two strong mobile platforms at present, with others like Windows Phone still scraping for traction.
Apple’s new, bigger iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have been fueling record sales figures since launch, and the company already set new iPhone sales records in both Q1 and Q2 so far in 2015.
The company is expected to roll out an updated version of the iPhone 6 twins later this year, keeping the same form factor but upgrading the internals and features, just as it has done every other year following a new iPhone form factor.
