Apple has announced that it now has more than two billion devices in active use around the world.
The announcement came as part of the company’s quarterly earnings report.
The number, which is substantially larger than the 1.8 billion that were in use a year ago, doesn’t necessarily mean that there are that many active users of course. While Apple doesn’t say which devices it counts, we have to imagine that it includes iPhones, iPads, Macs, and Apple Watches at the very least — possibly Apple TVs and HomePods as well.
If that’s the case it’s possible that a single user could have as many as six devices in use.
Apple’s announcement came as the company experienced its first revenue downturn since 2019, with revenue of $117.2 billion representing a 5% reduction from the same period last year. The earnings were for the quarter that ended December 31, 2022.
“As we all continue to navigate a challenging environment, we are proud to have our best lineup of products and services ever, and as always, we remain focused on the long term and are leading with our values in everything we do,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO.
However, Apple notes that its Services business “set an all-time revenue record of $20.8 billion” during the same period of time. Services include various things including Apple Pay, Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple One, and more.
