A graph published by Businessweek shows us iPhone sales, indicating once again how huge its "portion" is in Apple's entire business.
If iPhone, in fact, were a company in its own right, its revenue would be higher than some of the most emblazoned companies and brands in the entire economic market. In the chart, iPhone's revenue appears ninth in the top 3o of Dow Jones-listed companies, just behind giants such as IBM, JPMorgan, Verizon and AT&T.
More interestingly, however, the iPhone business alone exceeds the entire last 12 months' revenues of multinationals such as Intel, Coca-Cola, Disney, McDonald's, Nike, American Express, Visa, and Microsoft itself, which stops at 13th place on the chart. The statistic, a source of curiosity, certainly gives an idea of how much Apple's revenues and profits now depend primarily on the success of the iPhone.
