Apple, on Saturday, announced that it has reached 10 billion downloads on the iOS App Store for the iPhone, iPod Touch, & iPad since its launch in 2008. The company began a “Countdown to 10 billion” downloads on Jan. 14, when there were about 250 million downloads to go. Apple ran a promotion in which the 10 billionth downloader would win an iTunes gift card valued at $10,000!
It’s been 3 years now since the initial launch of the iOS App Store. In the first year of operation, Apple had already reached the 1.5 billion downloads mark. Two years later, Apple has hit the 10 billionth download! It’s amazing to see how much the iOS App Store has grown over the years.
Congratulation to Apple & may there be many more downloads to come! 🙂
