The Apple iPhone Surge

by admin on July 29, 2011

In a recent report by Strategy Analytics, the Apple iPhone is now the number one smart phone vendor in the world. Apple is up on its nearest competitor Samsung by over one million units! Since Q2 of 2010, Apple has also increased its shipments of iPhones by over 75%. We all know that the Apple machine is continuing to gain strength and grow, but what does that mean to consumers?

Does this mean that Steve Jobs is going to use Apple as a means of taking over the world? Maybe, but what it really means is that Apple has now become the second largest company only behind Exxon Mobil and boasts stock prices going for over $400 a share. The world’s leading technology provider is changing the way people use technology and access information. What Apple has been able to accomplish even in the last few years has been pure science fiction. Who could have imagined a world that is being run by touch screen phones that can pull up a webpage faster than a desktop computer? It is through this technology that the iPhone is pioneering ways for consumers to access information faster and easier than ever before. Do you want to buy an engagement ring but don’t know anything about jewelry? No problem, there is an app for it. Did you hear a song at a restaurant but didn’t know sang it? No worries, there is an app for it. Soon the iOS 5 technology will be compatible with a marketing system that pushes offers to consumers before they even know they need them. It is hard to imagine a technology that knows what I want before I do, but it is a reality!

It is this sort of technology that has led Apple to the top. By being a godhead for innovation, Apple products and services are second to none. It is hard to find someone who doesn’t own an Apple product, whether it be an iPod, iTouch, iPhone or MAC. With all of this new technology how is Apple still able to grow exponentially? Steve Jobs is quoted at saying, “…your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.” This quote sums up Jobs’ philosophy and how Apple has created a dominance over the realm of technology. If you want to create your own dominance in whatever field you’re in, take the advice of Jobs; after all Apple has more reserve funds than the U.S. government’s operating budget. Coincidence? I think not!

Don’t Stop Innovating!
