Apple's iPhone Business is Bigger Than All of Microsoft Put Together

Apple's iPhone business alone is now bigger than all of Microsoft put together, notes MG Siegler and Business Insider.

In the December quarter, Apple's iPhone business generated $24.4 billion of revenue. Microsoft's whole company, meanwhile, from Windows to Office to servers to XBox, generated $20.9 billion.

That's a pretty impressive observation. Applying Apple's average overall profit margin of 38%, the company generated about $9.3 billion for its iPhone business alone. Microsoft generated only $8.2 billion in profit.
