Apple's iPhone sales eclipse the entire of Microsoft's business

Apple's iPhone makes more money than the entire of Microsoft's business

We know that Apple's iPhone is a phenomenon, but just how far does it go? We reported yesterday that Apple's stock reached an all-time high of $648.11, but even today they've reached another all-time high of $665.15. How do they compare against another juggernaut, such as Microsoft? Forbes reports that Apple's iPhone sales are now worth more than all of Microsoft:

One Apple product, something that didn't exist five years ago, has higher sales than everything Microsoft has to offer. More than Windows, Office, Xbox, Bing, Windows Phone, and every other product that Microsoft has created since 1975. In the quarter ended March 31, 2012, iPhone had sales of $22.7 billion; Microsoft Corporation, $17.4 billion.

 

Defining the word "worth" when using it in this piece, doesn't really equate to iPhone beats Microsoft, but it's close. Apple's sales of the iPhone are seriously huge, and they eclipse everything that Microsoft does, even when you combine multiple parts of the Redmond-based company's business.
