Apple App Store records 15 billionth app download

Apple has confirmed that its App Store has now recorded more than 15 billion app downloads

Apple has recorded its 15 billionth download from the Apple iTunes App Store, the Cupertino tech giant has today revealed.

An official release from Apple has confirmed that over 15 billion apps have been downloaded from the App Store to date with more than 200 million iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users now having access to more than 425,000 apps, 100,000 of which are iPad native, across 90 countries.

“In just three years, the revolutionary App Store has grown to become the most exciting and successful software marketplace the world has ever seen,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “Thank you to all of our amazing developers who have filled it with over 425,000 of the coolest apps and to our over 200 million iOS users for surpassing 15 billion downloads.”

Apple announced back in January that it had passed the 10 billion app download milestone with the latest 5 billion downloads coming in the past six months and upon confirming for the first time that there are now more than 100,000 native iPad apps available in the App Store, Apple was keen to toot its own tablet brandishing horn.

“iPad provides us with an unparalleled mobile device for creating gorgeous, immersive games,” said Mark Rein, vice president and co-founder of Epic Games in the official Apple release whilst Nicholas Callaway, CEO of Callaway Digital Arts added “We knew the iPad was going to be a revolutionary storytelling device, but never could have anticipated it would become so popular, so quickly.”
