Recapping iOS 7
Now Cook is going over the strong reviews of the new operating system, iOS 7, and says that in five days after launch, 200 million devices were running iOS 7. That, he said, is the firm’s fastest and biggest launch thus far.
“Nearly two-thirds of the devices are running iOS 7,” Cook said. “This blows away the other guys.”
He’s also talking about iTunes Radio, which hasn’t had quite as much press in the discussion of iOS 7 as may have been expected. But Cook says that over 1 billion songs have been played in the U.S. over the past month.
He’s also offering an update on the app store, which he says now has over 1 million apps and 60 billion downloads. Developers, he said, have made $13 billion off of the App Store.
