Quantifying The iPhone 5’s Enormous Impact Upon The U.S. Economy [Video]


Despite ailing on Wall Street and criticized by analysts for somehow being “disappointing,” Apple’s iPhone 5 launch is the biggest one for the company yet. How big? Not even getting into units sold, the iPhone 5 has been responsible for an influx of about $75 billion into the U.S. economy in 2012… and that’s not even taking into account the rest of the world.

Not impressed yet? iPhone 5 sales could move the entire $15 trillion GDP of the United States up by half a percent.

Crazy, huh? This and other interesting facts in tech are part of Mobile Future’s 2012 Mobile Year In Review. Well worth a watch. The future’s just starting.
