On June 29, Apple reached its "14 years of iPhones" anniversary. And the company has now reached another milestone: Seven months after the iPhone 12's launch, the tech giant has sold more than 100 million of the gadgets. Previously, the iPhone 11 hit 100 million sales within the first nine months. 

Consumers seemed to enjoy the iPhone 12 Pro Max the most within the first seven months, with the highest-end smartphone making up 29% of the sales. The 12 series is grossing 22% more revenue than the iPhone 11 did during its first seven months.

The iPhone 12 was released in late October and debuted with four different variations: The iPhone 12 Mini for $699, the iPhone 12 for $799, the iPhone 12 Pro for $999 and the iPhone 12 Pro Max, which retails for $1,099. Combined, the four devices contributed to the 100 million sales.

Though the 12 series marks the first time Apple has left a charger and headphones out of its iPhone packaging, it seems sales aren't seeing a decline.

Apple didn't immediately respond to a request for comment on surpassing 100 million sales.
