Apple App Store: half billion downloads in last quarter

leave a comment »

Apple released its results for its fiscal 2009 fourth quarter ending September 26. Like in the previous announcements, some interesting new iPhone milestones have been reached:

  • Apple sold 7.4 million iPhones in the quarter, compared with 5.2 million in the third quarter of this year. This represent an increase in iPhone sales of over 40%.
  • Since the Appe Store launch, over 2 billion apps were downloaded. Of these, half a billion were in this last quarter alone.

The download rate in the App Store is speeding up quickly. Last April, Apple announced 1 billion downloads in 9 months. In only the last three months, half a billion apps were downloaded from the store. Apple will start selling the iPhone in China next month, which could have a substantial impact on the already fast growing download rates.

The Apple App Store has already been available in China for some months, preceding the iPhone launch. In this version of the store, no Games are available and all prices are in US dollars, whereas for most countries local currencies are used. But these things might change when the iPhone is officially launched. More details coming this month.
