It’s officially Apple day starting right now. Kicking off the WWDC keynote this morning Tim Cook is already off to a good start by talking numbers, and surely more will be coming. While we’re expecting tons of exciting news and updates on iPhone 5 sales, lets talk retail stores. Tim confirmed they now have over 407 retail stores across 14 countries, and they serve million of users daily.

Not only did they just release a stunning and beautiful store in Berlin, Germany, but they have over 400 other stores across the world for all their users. Tim’s talking how much “customers love the buying experience” and is even talking about their 50 billion downloads milestone. Which isn’t new.

What is new though, is that they have just announced just how many customers and Apple fans enjoy those stores. How man? Nearly 1 million customers get served on a daily basis in an Apple Retail store. That’s impressive. Not quite Walmart, but they’re rocking over there in Apple land.

Then Cook is taking the moment to talk about numbers, which we’ll talk more about as he fills out the details. He did state they now have nearly 900,000 apps in the App Store, and as mentioned above have seen over 50 billion downloads. Apple stores are always full of helpful staff, and clearly they won’t be slowing down anytime soon. If you haven’t been able to enjoy the NYC store, you might want to do it soon. That or the Berlin location of course. Stay tuned to our Apple Hub for all the WWDC news throughout the day.

  1. So many! On my pilgrimage in honor of our Lord Steve I have been to 46 of the Apple Stores around the world, in 35 cities, 15 countries (there exist countries apart from the US! who knew?) and 4 continents, and I’ve queued at least 72 hours (that’s three days to all you Android lusers!) outside four of those, but I still have so many left I must visit!

    You know how every adult male capable of walking is supposed to visit the Apple Company Store in Cupertino at least once in his lifetime?
    Well, I’ve been there THREE TIMES.
    I have Apple logo pajamas. IN. YOUR. FACE!

  2. Apple’s RETAIL chief is Angela Ahrendts. Yes, that American lass called Angela who transformed U.K.’s venerable but stodgy Burberry’s into a global fashion icon. In the process she became the highest paid female executive in the U.K.

    Since arriving in Cupertino earlier this year, she did not let the grass grow under her feet = she obtained an European copyright for her trend-setting store DESIGN.
    Imagine what she’ll be able to do with Apple’s virtually unlimited resources.

    Apple has now over 400 retail outlets globally, visited by one million every day.
    WOW and WOW again.
