Apple reaches 600 million iOS sales mark


The company also announced it offers 900,000 applications on its App Store at its developers conference on June 10

Apple has revealed that sales of iOS products have reached the 600 million unit milestone. It made the announcement at its Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco last night.

The company also presented attendees with research showing it was top in customer satisfaction, with Windows Phone coming in second, and Android third.

Apple said the iPhone was also top in terms of usage – claiming it is 50 per cent higher than Android. The manufacturer added 93 per cent of all iOS devices run on iOS 6, its most recent iteration until the launch of iOS 7 at last night’s event.

It said Android is still fragmented, with most users sticking to a two-year old version of the OS.

Apple CEO Tim Cook announced 900,000 apps were available on the App Store, with 375,000 optimised for the iPad. This compares to 750,000 on Android according to AppBrain. Apple also claimed that it has paid out the most amount of money to developers: $10 billion (£6.4 billion) in total, $5 billion (£3.2 billion) in the last year.

The company said it has 300 million users with iCloud accounts using the iTunes in the Cloud service.
