Cook also highlighted that the figure was "three times more than all other platforms combined." Cook announced that the App Store has 575 million store accounts, saying that Apple thinks it has more accounts with credit cards than anyone else on the Internet.

Those accounts have downloaded 50 billion apps, with 900,000 apps and 93% of those apps downloaded each month.
