Apple iOS stats: 200 million devices sold (25 million iPads), 14 billion apps downloaded, and more

While announcing the brand new iOS 5, Apple has also unveiled some general iOS stats.

First of all, we’ve found out that more than 200 million iOS devices have been sold until now.

According to Apple, 25 million of those are iPads – so the company sold 6 million iPads since March this year, when the number of units sold was reported to be 19 million.

Apple didn’t say how many iPhones it sold to date. However, we know that there were 100 million units sold in March. We also know that the company shipped more than 60 million iPod Touches as of the same month. Certainly, there have been several more million iPod Touches sold since then – let’s say 5 million at most. This would mean iPhone sales hit 110 million (probably more, though) by now. So, about 10 million iPhones were sold since March.

The conclusion: customers bought 6 million iPads and (at least) 10 million iPhones in the last three months. That is something.

Also interesting: it took Apple three years to sell the first 100 million iOS devices (since June 2007, when the OS was called iPhone OS), and only one year now to ship another 100 million (from June 2010 to June 2011). 100 iOS million devices in one year – that’s comparable to the total number of Android devices shipped since Google’s OS was first launched (September 2008).

Other iOS stats:

  • 14 billion apps have been downloaded via App Store. If you remember, back in April 2010 Apple announced that App Store had served 4 billion downloads. So there have been 10 billion new downloads since then. Wow. Just for compassion, Android Market served only 4.5 billion downloads as of May this year.
  • there are more than 90,000 iPad-specific apps available
  • 225 million iTunes accounts with credit cards
  • 50 million Game Center users
  • iPhone 4 is the second-most popular camera device on Flickr (see the image below)

The bad news amidst all these impressive stats is that the new iOS 5 will not be released until fall.

    So, what you’re saying is that it took Apple 3 years to sell 100 million devices, and Android 2 years and 9 months…

    flickr is not wildly used, I would be impressed if facebook photos had a similar sort of statistics. And Apple is hiding daily activation numbers

    btw you are wrong, Ipad sales for 2010 was 15 million, another 4 million for Q1 2011, so 6 million till now and Iphone sales of 10 million in 2 months and 5 days is below the previous quarter run rate(18.6 million in Q1 2011), whereas android sales are actually increasing, feb 350K per day to may 400k per day. Iphone sales are going down, despite verizon effect.

    Hey Sandeep, you’re right regarding iPad sales (only 6 million in the last 3 months), thanks for the correction.
