(CTV News) – Apple managed to sell a rather remarkable 47.5 million iPhones over the past three months, traditionally the quietest quarter of the year from a retail perspective. But as well as continued explosive growth in China, Tim Cook, the company’s CEO, put much of the performance down to what he describes as “Android Switchers.”
