125 million iOS devices, 300,000 apps, 35,000 iPad apps

As part of their Q4 2010 conference call, Apple today announced that 125 million iOS devices have been sold to date. That includes the 14.1 million iPhones, 4.19 million iPads, and perhaps the 250,000 Apple TVs this quarter. No iPod touch numbers were broken out, but 9.05 million iPods in general were also sold. That brings the iPhone up to 40 million sold in the last year on 156 carriers in 89 countries, and 7.5 million iPads in the last 6 months in 26 countries. They're activating and average of 275,000 iOS devices a day, peaking at 300,000.

Turning to the App Store, Apple made the official call on 300,000 apps, 65,000 of which are games or entertainment, and 35,000 of which are iPad specific.

Again, that's a huge target for developers and a very stable ecosystem for users who might want to take their app investments with them as they upgrade or move to more/other iOS devices.

125 million iOS devices, 300,000 apps, 35,000 iPad apps


The single greatest Consumer electronic company we have ever seen. This was a stellar quarter and the only thing holding Apple back is supplies. They should have announced all the people still WAITING for iPhones to put them even more out of reach. Steve Jobs is a CEO on a whole spryer level. This quarter next year will sell 30 million iPhones if it keeps on going at this pace and addition of verizon. Flash memory is going to run out big time
