n less than 5 years, the iPhone has become Apple’s most important product: in the 2011 fiscal year, iPhone revenue amounted to 47 billion U.S. dollars, representing more than 40 percent of Apple's total revenue. In the third quarter of 2011, 15 percent of all smartphones sold to end users were phones with the iOS operating system

The Above data published by Asymco shows Apple's Employment chart during the  5 Years of iPhone production.Apple created a total of 35,852 retail jobs

Apple Has Shipped 250 Million iPhones In The Past Five Years - Business Insider: "Apple has shipped 250 million iPhones worldwide since the product launched back in 2007, according to new data from Strategy Analytics, a global research firm.

While the first five years have been good for the iPhone, Strategy Analytics suggests the next five could prove to be more challenging as carriers rethink the cost of subsidizing the phone and Apple faces greater competition from companies like Samsung."

 Apple is looking to expand into new markets abroad, perhaps most notably by partnering with China Mobile, a wireless carrier with more than 650 million subscribers. And Apple is expanding into new markets at home by finally making the iPhone available on the prepaid market.

In terms of  contribution to American Economy In the five years since the iPhone launched, Apple created a total of 35,852 retail jobs.Some of those jobs came from new store openings. The total store count went from 172 to 361, more than doubling. But the growth in employment was faster: from about 6400 to 42,200, more than quintupling. This is reflected in the total number of employees per store which increased from 37 in Q1 2007 to 117 in Q1 2012.

PC Shipments Comparison : Windows vs Apple Devices :

When Windows 95 launched in 1995 it negated most of the advantages of the ease of use of the Macintosh and the PC market took off. The ratio reached 56 in 2004 when 182.5 million PCs were sold vs. 3.25 million Macs.
During the second half of the 90s it was already clear that Windows won the PC platform war. Windows had an  advantage that seemed unsurmountable.

Statistics show that Microsoft Windows has approximately 91% of the market share, while the Apple Mac OS has around 5% of the market share. The other 4% is owned by other operating systems such as Linux.

For the past 20 quarters, sales of Apple Macs  have grown faster than the PC market Apple Macintosh, was the first successful personal computer to feature a mouse and a graphical user interface (GUI), and it was introduced on the 24th of January 1984. About a year later, Microsoft introduced Microsoft Windows in November 1985 in response to the growing interest in the GUIs.

When the Macintosh was launched in 1984, computers running the MS-DOS operating system were nearing a dominant position in the market.The  IBM PC,were quickly cloned and four years later “PCs” were selling at the rate of 2 million/yr.  The Mac only managed 372k units in its first year.
PC was outselling the Mac by a factor of nearly 6. It turned out to be a high point. The ratio by which the PC outsold the Mac only increased from there.

When Windows 95 launched in 1995 it negated most of the advantages of the ease of use of the Macintosh and the PC market took off. The ratio reached 56 in 2004 when 182.5 million PCs were sold vs. 3.25 million Macs.(source : Asymco)

New iPad sales unprecedented ,Apple projected to sell 66M in 2012

via data source

New iPad drawing record preorders, Apple projected to sell 66M in 2012: "Apple's new iPad is off to a record start before it's even been released, setting the stage for the company to sell a projected 66 million total units in 2012.

Analyst Michael Walkley with Canaccord Genuity raised his price target for Apple stock on Wednesday to $710, from $665. He said his own checks with Apple's distribution channels have indicated that the new iPad, just announced a week ago, has already broken the company's preorder records.

New orders from Apple's online store now take up to three weeks to ship in the U.S., which Walkley believes is another sign that the new iPad will achieve record sales when it goes on sale in 10 countries this Friday at 8 a.m. local time."

The analyst also believes that Apple's competitors will continue to struggle to introduce competitive products over the coming quarters. He noted that at this year's Consumer Electronics Show and Mobile World Congress conferences, most Android manufacturers "essentially conceded the high-end tablet market to Apple in the near term."

 Apple  is expected to sell 65.6 million iPads in 2012, a projection nearly 10 million units higher than his previous forecast of 55.9 million.
