App Store Reaches a Milestone: 1 Million Apps Approved

736,247 of those apps are currently live.


According to Appsfire, Apple's App Store passed a major milestone on Monday: 1 million apps approved since the store's inception in July 2008. While Apple is unlikely to acknowledge the milestone publicly, it did recently announce that the App Store has passed 700,000 apps. Currently, 736,247 of the 1 million apps Apple has approved are still available to users.

At the iPhone 5 launch, Apple CEO Tim Cook reported that 90 percent of all iOS apps see at least one download per month. In addition, he said the average iPhone or iPad user has 100 apps on his or her device.
