It’s the Apple iPhone’s 5th Birthday today. That’s five years and 250 million handsets sold and shows no sign of slowing up as new research shows it continues to dominate the smartphone market. Apple iPhones are owned by 19% of smartphone users compared with 15% owning an Android phone and 11% owning a Blackberry, which today announced a delay to its latest phone.
