More iPhones sold than babies born in the world every day

“With the release of its quarterly earnings earlier today, Apple revealed that it had sold 37.04M iPhones in fiscal Q1 of 2012,” Matthew Panzarino reports for TNW. “Those numbers are massive, far bigger than any other manufacturer and beyond industry estimates.”
“The 37.04M iPhone figure divided out over the period of 98 days in the quarter gives us… 377.9K sold every day,” Panzarino reports. “[That’s] higher than the world’s average birth rate which clocks in at 371K per day.”

“Apple is now making iPhones at a rate that exceeds the amount of babies that humans produce on earth every day,” Panzarino reports. “It’s a pretty staggering statistic, especially when you consider that Apple is selling every one of those devices it can make.”
