AT&T reported more than 3.6 million iPhone activations during their most recent fiscal quarter, confirming that Apple has beaten out Nokia to become the world’s biggest smartphone manufacturer for the first time.
Apple declared war in 2007 and it has finally become the world’s largest smartphone vendor, beating Nokia for the first time. While Nokia shifted 16.7 million units in its most recent quarter, Apple sold more than 20 million iPhones during the same time period, driving ahead of its Finnish competitor.
Despite the legal conflict between Apple and Samsung, things may get worse for Nokia. Samsung’s numbers are expected to surpass Nokia smartphone sales within the next fiscal quarter. On the other hand, a recent report claims Apple can sit tight and still market 190 million iPhones in 2016 alone.
