The iPhone user base is expected to surpass 1 billion units by 2019, according to new estimates.

Growth is so healthy right now that analysts expect the number of active users to be around 80 percent bigger when iPhone 8 goes on sale this fall than it was when the iPhone 6 arrived in September 2014.

Who said the iPhone had already reached its peak?
