Apple has sold 200 million iOS devices, and distributed 14 billion apps

On the download end of things, Apple reported that they've distributed 14 billion App Store downloads, and 130 million downloads from the iBookstore. Those figures do include free apps, but that doesn't make it any less impressive. Developers have been paid $2.5 billion thus far.
iTunes, which obviously had a head start, has sold 15 billion songs. We suppose Apple should be thanking us, but we're grateful for something else: We're grateful that they chose to present these in the number of apps, devices, songs, etc. Because if we heard the cash value that we've paid to Apple over the years, it might make us nauseous.

I'm following this. While there have been neat features I've seen, minutia that's amusing and useful, the major things (notifications, cloud, multitasking, camera access) have already been done by other companies. The notifications especially are a ripoff of Android's functionality.

Yes & out of those 200 million many if not most are iPods. Since the iPod went iOS they have been selling like crazy. Everyone including myself has one. My Nephew, Niece, Brother, Mother & Wife have one because I bought them it. So this is in no way implying the iPhone & iPad were behind this HUGE number! In most households there are multiple iPods. iPod is their true bread & butter! Apple wouldn't be a glimmer of what they are now if they didn't have the iPod.

Impressive. That is why they are the leader in this industry.
