Despite Apple’s more recent iPhones not selling as well as their predecessors, there’s no denying that the iPhone is still a pretty hot ticket item. Exactly how hot, you ask? According to Apple’s earnings call (via TechCrunch), it seems that the company has confirmed that the iPhone’s install base is now sitting at 900 million devices.

This is according to Apple’s CFO Luca Maestri who claims that this is the first time that Apple has revealed these numbers. “Our global active install base of iPhone continues to grow and has reached an all-time high at the end of December. We are disclosing that number now for the first time; it has surpassed 900 million devices.”

This is just the iPhone only and according to Apple, the total install base which covers iPads and Mac computers is sitting at 1.4 billion, which means that Apple’s iPhones account for more than half of that and it’s easy to see why a weakening demand is worrying for investors. It’s actually interesting that the install base was revealed as Apple has stopped offering figures on how many iPhones it has sold, but now we have a good idea of where the company is sitting at.

In the meantime Apple’s CEO had also stated that price was a factor that might have affected in users choosing to upgrade their iPhones. He also suggested that Apple might be revising its prices in select markets that might be especially weak against the dollar.
