200 Million People Are Using iOS 6 (And Other Apple Stats Announced)By: Chris Crum - October 23, 2012
At its big event today, Apple revealed a bunch of stats about its products, as usual. In addition to the 5 million iPhone 5s sold in the first weekend of availability, CEO Tim Cook revealed that the company has so far sold over 3 million of the new iPods it revealed at the same time.
Cook says there are currently 200 million devices running iOS 6 after just a month of availability. As a result, there are 125 million documents in the cloud, there have been 300 billion iMessages sent, with 28,000 being sent per second.
There are currently 160 million Game Center players, and over 70 million photos have been shared with the Photo Streams feature in iOS 6.
There are 700,000 apps in the App Store, including 275,000 iPad apps (as in specifically designed for the iPad, and not just stretched out smartphone apps, as Cook pointed out).
Users have downloaded 35 billion apps in from the store. “This is jaw dropping,” said Cook. $6,500,000,000 has been paid to developers, the Cook said.
Finally, there are a million and a half books in the book store, and customers have downloaded 400 million of them.
More from the event to come.
