Apple counted the apps in the App Store. As for the art

So accurate data on iPhone applications has not yet been available.

Apple decided for the first time to publish “App Store Transparency ReportIt includes data for 2022, but the company promises that it will be updated each year.

The number of applications for iPhones, iPads and Macs is impressive

According to official data, in 2022 there were exactly 1,783,232 applications in the App Store. There are no categories, but it’s safe to assume that the overwhelming majority of them are available for iPhones.

The rest of the article under the video

In order for the app (or its update) to be included in the App Store, the team must review the applications submitted by their developers. There were 6,101,913 such applications, of which 1,679,694 were rejected.

The reasons why Apple does not allow the application to its store are interesting

Every time Apple rejects an application for an application or its update to the App Store, its creators receive information about the reason. Do you think that the most common cause is non-compliance with the store’s strict regulations? Well, you may be surprised.

The disclosed data shows that the most common reasons for app rejection are related to the following problems:

  1. performance (1,018,415);
  2. legal (441,972);
  3. design (212,464);
  4. business (152,391);
  5. related to security (92,598);
  6. others (79,736).

Yes, if an app doesn’t make it to the App Store, it’s usually because of unsatisfactory performance. This cause is more common than all the others put together.

This explains why games are the most frequently rejected type of application by Apple. The entire list looks like this:

  1. games (38,883);
  2. tools (20,045);
  3. business (16,997);
  4. education (16,509);
  5. lifestyle (15,171);
  6. entertainment (11,757);
  7. food and drink (8317);
  8. productivity (7314);
  9. travel (5510);
  10. shopping (5376).

It also happens that applications are removed at the behest of the government of a given country. You will not be surprised by the top of the countries where such cases were most often recorded:

  1. China (143,510);
  2. Indie (14);
  3. Pakistan (10);
  4. Russia (7);
  5. Türkiye (2);
  6. Bulgaria (1);
  7. Cyprus (1);
  8. Hongkong (1);
  9. Italy (1);
  10. Latvia (1);
  11. Nigeria (1).

A moment of calculation and it turns out that China demands that Apple remove the application more than 3,600 times more often than the rest of the world combined.

Apple also shared a portion of statistics on people using the resources of the App Store. The company revealed the average weekly numbers:

  • App Store visitors – 656 739 889;
  • application downloads – 747,873,877;
  • application re-downloads – 1,539,274,266;
  • automatic updates – 40 876 798 492;
  • manual application updates – 512 545 816.

Although well over 1.5 million programs can be downloaded to iPhones, iPads and Macs, users are much more likely to revisit previously used apps than to check out new ones.

And if the weekly data doesn’t impress you, how about the fact that statistically the App Store supports over 68,000 apps? update… per second?
