Once again, Apple’s iPhone was the best-selling tech product of the year.

Not only was the iPhone the best-selling tech product of 2017, according to a USA Today report, but its sales numbers were so large that it sold more than the next four items combined on the best-selling list.

The paper worked with GBH Insights for the report. In it, analysts claim that Apple will sell 223 million iPhones this year, up from the 211 million phones it sold in 2016.

As for the other products that made it to the top five those are (in order): The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8 smartphones (counted as one product) at 33 million, AmazonEcho Dot connected speakers at 24 million, Apple Watch at 20 million, and Nintendo Switch video game console at 15 million.

Worth noting, Apple’s huge sales numbers include all of its iPhone models. This year alone, the company released three new versions of the phone: the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus. That certainly helped it destroy its competition.

While huge, this year’s sales numbers also aren’t a record for the Cupertino, Calif. company. That honor belongs to 2015 when Apple released the iPhone 6, a redesign that led to 230 million in sales.



来自GBH Insights的分析师这样描述:苹果公司将在2017年销售2.23亿部iPhone,高于前一年的2.11亿部。


值得一提的是,苹果公司的所有iPhone机型的销售业绩均十分可观。仅在2017年,苹果就发布了三款新的机型:iPhone X、iPhone 8以及iPhone 8 Plus。这些新产品都有助于苹果建立起得天独厚的竞争优势。

不过,对于这家总部位于加利福尼亚州库比蒂诺的科技公司而言,销量最高的时候还不是2017年。在2015年,苹果发布了iPhone 6,这款重新设计的产品深受欢迎,销量高达2.3亿部。
