Record IPhone Popularity May Be Fuelling Mobile Trade Ins

A huge number of people could be trading in their mobiles in order to snap up an Apple iPhone, after the US manufacturer revealed record sales figures for its iconic device.

During the quarter to June 25th, some 20.34 million iPhones were sold, a figure that is 142 per cent higher than in the same three-month spell a year earlier.

Apple has also told how its revolutionary tablet model – the iPad – is performing well, with its sales up by 183 per cent in the same time.

Steve Jobs, chief executive officer of the technology provider, said: "We're thrilled to deliver our best quarter ever, with revenue up 82 per cent and profits up 125 per cent. Right now, we're very focused and excited about bringing iOS 5 and iCloud."

The iPhone 4 – the last incarnation of the range – was released in the UK and throughout much of the world in June last year.
