Apple CEO Tim Cook said his company has sold half a billion iOS devices to date and “sold 10 iOS devices per second” last quarter during Apple’s quarterly earnings conference call today.

While Apple had record revenue, profit, and iOS device sales in Q1 2013, the company did not meet sky-high Wall Street expectations. Apple’s stock is trading down about 10 percent as of this writing.

By the numbers, Apple sold 47.8 million iPhones, 22.9 million iPads, and 12.7 million iPods in the last quarter.

With those kind of numbers, how soon before Apple has sold a billion iOS devices?
