Steve Jobs of course unveiled the new iPhone today, and some new iPhone apps were revealed as well. However, between these unveilings, a lot of interesting statistics were rattled off, so here is a round of up of those (via this liveblogged account of the keynote).
- 8,500 native iPad apps in the app store.
- 5 million books, at an average of 2.5 books per iPad in first 65 days
- 22% - iBook's market share for 5/6 major publishers
- App store supports over over 225,000 apps
- 15,000 apps submitted each week (in 30 languages)
- 95% of apps approved within 7 days
- passed 5 Billion downloads in the app store last week
- 70% of revenue goes to developers - passed 1 billion dollars
- Going to hit 100 millionth iOS device this month (iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads)
- Apple has over 150 million credit cards (across App Stores, iTunes, iBooks)
- 16 billion downloads (also across these stores)
In addition to these numbers, Steve Jobs shared some smartphone market numbers from Nielsen, which had the U.S. market share pegged as: RIM (35%), iPhone (28%), Windows (19%), Android (9%), other (9%). Numbers around this subject have been controversial for a while, and these will no doubt spark further discussion. Jobs noted that according to these, the iPhone's share is 3 times more than Android.
Which OS will marketers have to be more concerned about moving ahead: iOS or Android? We discussed this here.
