Californian electronics shop Apple reported that it has sold 1.38 million iPhones to date, after shifting 1.119 million in the third quarter.

Apple introduced the iPhone on June 29 and sold its 1 millionth device 74 days later. The iconic device is due to reach European shores next month, first arriving in the UK and Germany, followed by France.

During the three months to end September, the iPhone delivered $118m in revenues, helping to push Apple’s revenues for the quarter up to $6.22bn with a net quarterly profit of $904m, compared to revenue of $4.84bn and net quarterly profit of $542m in the same period last year.

Interestingly enough, during the company’s results announcement, Apple’s chief operating officer,┬áTimothy Cook, estimated that the company had sold 250,000 devices to users that intended to unlock them – that’s about 17 per cent of all units sold.
