Other industry figures expect the milestone to come much sooner, predicting August 16, 2013. The Cupertino-based company is currently valued at US$656 billion.

The report points to Apple’s expansion into the mobile market with its slew of iOS products – including the top-selling iPhone and iPad – as the force behind increasing revenue.
