By Itself, iPhone Is A Bigger Business Than Coca-Cola Or McDonald’s [Chart]



We all know the iPhone is a huge part of Apple’s business, but how huge? A new chart shows that if it were a standalone company, the iPhone would have greater revenues than some of the most iconic businesses on Earth.

Businessweek put together a chart that shows that, taken alone, Apple’s iPhone business would make it the 9th largest company in the Dow Jones top 30, toppling iconic companies like Boeing, Intel, Coca-Cola, Disney, McDonald’s, Nike and more.

That’s not to say that Apple’s iPhone business is the biggest in the world. Far from it: IBM, that stalwart blue chip, is still bigger, as is AT&T, Verizon, GE, Exxon and Walmart.
