Almost two-thirds of all iPhones are still being used

Nearly two-thirds of iPhones sold since the 2007 launch remain in use, according to data from Newzoo (as cited by Digitimes). The market intelligence firm says that 728 million Apple smartphones remained in use as of April, which represents about 63% of all iPhones sold in the past decade.

One-quarter of cell phones used around the world were iPhones, but iPhone sales only accounted for 15% of April global smartphone shipments. Approximately 228 million (about 31%) of the in-use Apple smartphones are in China with the US market coming in second with 120 million (16%), according to Newzoo. The iPhone 6 remains the most popular with 21% of the market with the newer iPhone 7 coming in at 11%.
