- V3 Apps
Developers have created more than one million individual applications for the Apple's iOS platform, according to industry trackers.
Mobile application tracking developer AppSense said on Monday that more than one million iOS applications have been built for the platform since its launch. The figure includes both currently available applications and legacy apps which have since been removed or phased out.
Apple has yet to provide confirmation of acknowledgement on the figure. The company has closed parts of its US operation for the week due to the Thanksgiving holiday and was not immediately available to comment.
If confirmed, the one million app mark would be the latest in an already-impressive series of milestones for iOS. The company in March celebrated its 25 billionth App Store download.
The year has also brought a number of challenges for the iOS brand. Shortly after the release of iOS 6, Apple issued a letter of apology for the poor quality of the platforms Maps application.
Apple also announced on Monday a deal to bring even more content to its iOS devices. The company said that it had agreed to a licensing deal which will bring the full catalogue of rock band AC/DC to the iTunes Store.
To commemorate the deal, Apple is offering a bundle of all 16 of the band's studio albums for $99 and a second bundle for $149 which also includes live albums.
