WWDC: The numbers say Apple rules

   <section class="page">
If it's a WWDC keynote, there will be numbers—lots of numbers—designed to demonstrate Apple’s continued might in the mobile and PC markets. So for example, Apple CEO Tim Cook crowed that iOS 7, which debuted at last year’s show, is now installed on 89% of all iOS devices in existence; by contrast, he pointed out that just 9% of Android devices are running the latest version of the Android operating system.</p><p>
Among the other iOS tidbits dropped in the keynote:</p><ul>
<li>"We've now sold well over 800 million iOS devices," Cook said. The iPad has passed 200 million units, the iPhone 500 million units, and the iPod touch 100 million units.</li>
<li>More then 130 million customers who bought an iOS device in the last 12 months were buying their first Apple device. "Many of these customers were switchers from Android,” Cook said. “They bought an Android mistake...and then had sought a better experience...and a better life. And decided to check out iPhone and iOS."</li>
<li>iOS 7 earned a 97% overall satisfaction rating from its users.</li>
<li>98% of Fortune 500 companies now use iOS. "And we're going to get the last two."</li>
<li>300 million people visit the App Store each week.</li>
<li>There are now over 1.2 million apps in the App Store, and over 75 billion apps have been downloaded in total. </li>
Not that the Mac was neglected:</p><p class="jumpTag"><a href="/article/2357769/wwdc-the-numbers-say-apple-rules.html#jump">To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here[/url]</p></section></article>
