One reason Apple Watch isn’t a great success is because it gets compared to the iPhone, which may be the greatest successful product ever. Statistas chart is stunning.
The iPhone has changed Apple’s business dramatically. iPhone sales have risen strongly over the years, from around 1.4 million iPhones sold in 2007 to more than 201 million units worldwide in 2016. In total, Apple has sold more than one billion iPhones worldwide from 2007 to 2016. In the first quarter of 2017, iPhone sales accounted for more than 69 percent of Apple’s total revenue, generating more than 54 billion U.S. dollars in revenues.
Forget the successful Watch, compare anything else with those numbers.
