App Store Reaches 400,000 iOS Apps



app store

AppAdvice reports that the App Store reaches 400,000 iOS applications.  According to data provided by the App Store tracking system App Shopper, there were 401,446 iOS applications at the moment of creating this article. Noteworthy to say that for three years (The App Store officially launched on July 10, 2008, a day before the release of the iPhone 3G running iPhone OS 2.0.1.) 507,293 applications were approved by Apple. We believe that the milestone of 400,000 applications may be a part of Steve Jobs’  keynote speech at WWDC. AppShopper also reports that 97,946 iPad applications are currently available in the App Store.

Apple Paying Record Companies Up To $150 Million For iCloud



Record-Companies

The New York Post reports that Apple will pay between $100 and $150 million in advance payments to the four major record labels, Sony Music, EMI, Warner Music and Universal, for iCloud license agreements with them. Each of them was offered between $25 million and $50 million. Of course, the total amount will depend on number of songs consumers will store in iCloud.

The New York Post also mentioned that Apple would receive 30 % of fees, the music publishers - 12% and the rest would go towards record labels and artists. Apple is known to have finalized all deals concerning iCloud. The last one was recently sealed with Universal Music. The official iCloud announcement will be made on Monday, June 6, at the WWDC keynote.

Apple’s Data Center Makes A Google Maps Appearance



data-center

Apple’s new data center in Maiden, North Carolina, is now visible in Google Maps. The building hasn’t changed at all – it’s the same constriction we’ve seen in different shots during the past months. But it is interesting that only now Apple allowed Google to display the data center in theirs Maps service after Apple’s announcement concerning the WWDC where Apple confirmed that Steve Jobs would appear at the conference keynote and that the company will unveil the iOS 5, OS X Lion and iCloud. It seems that such sudden appearance of the data center in Google Maps may be a confirmation of Apple’s intention to use this massive facility for iCloud and cloud-related services.

Some iCloud Music Service Details



iTunes10

Apple’s upcoming iCloud service, rumored to include streaming of iTunes collections to a variety of devices and computers, is said to be formally introduced at the WWDC keynote on June 6. Businessweek says “three people briefed on the talks” (between Apple and music labels) have suggested Apple will provide a scanning tool that quickly mirrors songs to iCloud’s servers, also offering a way to replace those songs with better-quality versions if quality is not deemed “good enough.”

Mac OS X Lion Nearing Public Release



ios lion release

TUAW reports that Mac OS X Lion has gone “live for internal testing” at Apple last week. Whilst it’s not clear what that means, we assume Apple has begun widespread internal testing of a new build of the OS that’s nearing GM status. TUAW suggests Lion might see a public release at WWDC in two weeks, or at least sooner than previously expected:

This suggests the new OS might possibly ship as early as WWDC with an “available today” mention at the keynote — or it might not. But Lion is looking to be one step closer to availability for Apple customers.

Remind you that the latest developer preview of OS X Lion brought minor graphical changes to apps Apple had already updated, as well as tweaks and performance improvements to make the OS more stable and faster.

iWork '11 to Launch Alongside Mac App Store in Early 2011?



iwork11eng

People close to Apple claims that iWork '11 productivity suite is finished and ready for launch but will be released alongside the Mac App Store in early 2011. Initially iWork '11 was planed to be launched alongside iLife '11 last month and its release was held back at the last moment for unknown reasons. Now Apple is planning to launch the new productivity suite alongside the forthcoming Mac App Store. The application will include Pages, Numbers and Keynote bundles, which may be available for purchase exclusively through the Mac App Store for $19.99 each, below Apple's current $79 price for the complete retail box suite.

The Mac App Store should debut on January 18th, 2011. Last week the company began accepting submissions from developers who would like to include their applications in the Mac App Store. Developers will take a 70 percent cut of sales, while Apple will retain 30 percent.
