Yesterday, speaking at the opening of the WWDC 2013 developer conference, Apple CEO Tim Cook shared the latest statistics regarding the Apple App Store.
He recalled that not so long ago the number of downloads from this store exceeded the milestone of 50 billion. To date, there are over 900 thousand applications in the store for all iOS-based devices, of which 375 thousand are made specifically for the iPad. The number of accounts in the App Store is estimated at 575 million.
6 million developers working on programs for Apple platforms have been registered. Developers have already been paid over $10 billion ($5 billion over the past year).
And another interesting fact is that 93% of all applications are downloaded every month.
