iOS devices are selling like hot cakes

Apple is growing tremendously and has a huge amount of money sitting in the bank thanks in large part to the popularity of its iOS devices. Apple continues to sell every iPhone and iPad it can build and the popularity of the products doesn't seem to be waning despite increased competition.
Asymco has offered a very interesting statistic that looks at the number of iOS devices sold versus the number of Macs sold by Apple. Macs have been on the market in various forms for 28 years. According to Asymco, Apple has sold 122 million Macs over the 28-year time span.

Since the iOS platform launched, 316 million devices running the OS had been sold by Apple. That counts iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touch. One thing that isn't clear about these numbers is how exactly Asymco was able to determine the number of iPod Touches sold since that metric is bundled in with all other iPods which don't run iOS.
Asymco claims that in 2011 alone 156 million iOS devices were sold putting the number 34 million above the number of Macs sold.
