Tim Cook took the stage at the 2013 Apple iPhone Event today, and led off with some interesting numbers.
Cook opened by talking about the 7th annual iTunes Festival, now going on it London.
Apple doesn’t charge for tickets, so 20 million people have applied for them.
It’s being live streamed to over 100 countries.
Now numbers closer to home.
The Stanford, CA store is tiny, but it has served five million customers — 2,000 per day.
This weekend it’s been replaced with a massive glass-enclosed pavilion. There’s glass on three sides and a cantilevered roof. It’s been split into two rooms: one for service, one for retail.
Now onto iOS: “Next month, we will ship the 700 millionth iOS device.”
“iOS 7 will quickly become the world’s most popular operating system.”
There’s been a lot of rumor and speculation, and it seems we have plenty to look forward to. Check out our expectations for the event, and stay tuned to MacTrast for the latest!
