According to Bloomberg, Apple is fast approaching the 2 billion iPhones sold since the launch of the famous smartphone.
In the year 2020, the famous iPhone completes its 13th anniversary. In addition, if Apple reveals more as precisely as before the sales figures of its smartphone, some analysts believe that the US giant would approach a new course at the start of this decade.
Soon two billion iPhones sold?
Indeed, according to Bloomberg analysts, Apple should sell just under 200 million iPhones in the coming fiscal year (compared to 186 million iPhones in the previous period). In total, these results should allow the firm to surpass the bar of 2 billion iPhones sold worldwide. This is since the first launch of the smartphone in 2007.
Remember that Steve Jobs presented the very first iPhone on January 9, 2007. It was during a MacWorld event in San Francisco, that is (already) 13 years ago. Note that this year 2020 should also be the opportunity for Apple to launch a brand new iPhone SE 2.

According to recent reports, the handset will represent a throwback to Apple’s former design language. It may not come under the iPhone SE 2 moniker. Instead, the Cupertino-based firm may adopt the iPhone 9 name.
The device will come in Q1 2020 and a couple of renders have emerged from OnLeaks and iGeekBlogs. According it, the iPhone SE 2 (or iPhone 9) is said to feature a small 4.7-inch LCD display. Fans of compact smartphones, you can finally rest! Moreover, the new leak reveals that the handset is said to measure 138.5 x 67.4 x 7.8 mm in size and 8.6mm including the rear camera bump. For a quick comparison, the iPhone 8 measures 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3 mm in size. Despite the similarities between the iPhone SE 2 and the 2017’s iPhone 8, the upcoming device is said to sport a frosted glass back while the old handset features a glossy back.
