Tim Cook has announced that Apple is close to shipping it’s two-billionth iOS device …

Cook made the announcement in the introduction to today’s iPhone launch.

Apple hit a billion devices back in the summer of 2016, at which point Cook described the iPhone as one of the most successful products in history.

iPhone has become one of the most important, world-changing and successful products in history. It’s become more than a constant companion. iPhone is truly an essential part of our daily life and enables much of what we do throughout the day,” said Cook. “Last week we passed another major milestone when we sold the billionth iPhone. We never set out to make the most, but we’ve always set out to make the best products that make a difference. Thank you to everyone at Apple for helping change the world every day.

Cook didn’t specify just how close the company is to the 2B milestone, but is likely to issue a follow-up announcement once the number is actually reached.
