Somewhere on earth, Apple has sold its 500 millionth iPhone. The milestone comes less than seven years after the first iPhone was sold in June 2007, according to Forbes. It took Apple nearly four years to sell 100 million iPhones. It reached 200 million one year later. Ten months after that, the 300 millionth iPhone was sold. Number 400 million was sold just eight months later. The 500 millionth iPhone was sold around March 8. Heading into the current quarter, Apple had sold 472 million iPhones. In September 2013, EverythingApplePro posted a video showing all eight iPhone models to date. It does a nice job showing how things have changed since the original iPhone first launched.
