Apple said a record 2 billion apps were downloaded in December last year.

“It has been an incredible year for the iOS developer community,” Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of internet software and services, said in a statement.

“Developers have made over $7 billion dollars on the App Store and we continue to invest in providing them with the best ecosystem so they can create the most innovative apps in the world.”
