According to Matthew Panzarino, News and Apple Editor of The Next Web, Apple's release of its quarterly earnings revealed that the Cupertino company sells more iPhones per day than people are born, daily, everywhere in the world.

If those numbers are correct, and we believe that they are, Apple is now making iPhones at a rate that exceeds the amount of babies that humans produce on earth every day. This number is likely to be transient as the birth rate isn't static and Apple's first quarter normally gets a bump in sales from the Christmas shopping season which subsides in the second.
