App Store

At today’s recent Apple event, Apple CEO Tim Cook delivered some interesting facts about the App Store. One million apps are available on the App Store with over 60 billion app downloads so far. Back in June, Apple said they hosted over 900,000 apps with one third of them geared at the iPad.

Cook says Apple developers have earned $13 billion through app sales — an increase over $7 billion in January and $10 billion in June. In addition, 64% of iOS devices are already running iOS 7. Apple says the iPhone 5S/5C launch weekend was the largest launch weekend ever for the company — selling over 9 million iPhones.

These are some interesting statistics for anyone interested in developing for iOS.
