Apple Now Has 1.4 Billion Active Devices Worldwide

Apple CEO Tim Cook today announced that its active installed base of devices has hit 1.4 billion, a milestone the company hit at the end of December.

Apple's active installed base includes the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Mac, Apple TV, and Apple Watch models in use around the world. Of the 1.4 billion active devices, 900 million of those are iPhones.


The new 1.4 billion milestone comes nearly a year after Apple announced that it had 1.3 billion active devices back in December 2018, and the growth comes despite a Q1 2019 decline in iPhone sales.

On the strength of that active installed base, Apple's services category set new all-time records, seeing a 19 percent growth in revenue year-over-year.

I would add to their numbers right now if they would release new desktop Macs!

That’s a lot of devices. Don’t be misled into thinking 1 in 6 people on earth have an Apple device though. More like 1 in 20 have multiple devices.

Yep. Multiple Apple TVs in my house, both my wife and I have Apple Watch, iPhone and iPad, and I have a Mac.

Myself, I have 5 Android devices I regularly use. Same will be true of many Apple users.

A lot of people have multiple Apple devices.

How many people do those 1.4 billion devices have as owners?

And how do we define active? Physically working? iPhone 4 still works, my original classic iPod wheel still works.

Here’s the device breakdown according to AboveAvalon. I can’t vouch for its accuracy, but I do trust the writer to have done his homework.

Neil Cybart is one of the most thorough and interesting commentators about Apple, but many of his are just guesstimates, educated yes, but guesstimates nonetheless, and as such, may be wildly off.

Only 40% of Apple device owners have multiple devices. 60% only own 1 device. (Source:Above Avalon)

This is somewhat accurate since Apple confirmed today there are 900M iPhones.


Yeah, I am still slowly digesting the earnings report. Certainly beats earlier estimates of 2-3 hundred million as purported by some other members.
