Everyone knows that Apple is a giant company. But not everyone knows just how big it really is.

Here are some mind-blowing figures on just how big Apple really is:

  1. Apple’s revenue last year was $42.1 billion, which is bigger than Turkmenistan’s entire economy.
  2. Apple holds $155 billion in cash, which means 49 cents per U.S. citizen. That money can also buy 2,384 Gulfsteam G650s.
  3. Apple sold 5.52 million Mac computers in the last quarter, which is the same population of Minnesota.
  4. It sold 39.3 million iPhones in the last quarter, which is more than the population of Canada.
  5. If the company is a national economy, it would be the 27th biggest in the world.
  6. It is expected to earn $100 billion net income this year, which is enough to acquire Snapchat 10 times.
  7. The difference between Apple and ExxonMobile when it comes to value is $60 billion, which can buy 444 5-22 fighter jets.
  8. It sold 243 million iOS devices in the past 12 months, which is enough to give all North Koreans 10 devices each.
  9. It sold 12.9 million iPads in the last quarter, which is 258 iPads for each of its employees.
  10. The company expects to sell some 30 million Apple Watches in the next couple of years, which could mean $10.5 billion in profit. That’s the same size of Nicaragua’s economy.
