iOS is alive and kicking – 230,000 new activations a day, over 6.5 billion app downloads

Wed, Sep 1, 2010


Steve Jobs kicked off today’s media event with a few interesting tidbits of information. First, Jobs announced that Apple is activating 230,000 new iOS devices a day. And in a veiled jab at Google, Jobs noted, ” We think some of our friends are counting upgrades in their numbers, but we think strictly new activations is a better metric.”

All told, there are now over 250,000 apps in the iTunes App Store (25,000 available for the iPad) with approximately 6.5 billion apps having been downloaded to date.
