During the WWDC 2012 keynote, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced a major milestone for the App Store--there has now been over 30 billion apps downloaded by iOS users to date. The App Store launched just four years ago, just says prior to the launch of the iPhone 3G in 2008.
Tim Cook is set to take the stage for the WWDC 2012 keynote to reveal iOS 6, Mountain Lion, new Macs, and possibly more. Apple will surely make the video available later today for all, but if you want some hints as to what he'll be talking about this morning, check out his interview from the D10 conference. Tim talked with Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher for over an hour about Apple products and strategies, and leaves some interesting hints by what he says--and what he doesn't say. Full video after the break.

iOS 6 and Mountain Lion are now on the horizon, as we should expect full details on both during the WWDC 2012 keynote. We’ve got our calendar cleared for Monday June 11 at 10:00am PDT, which is when the keynote kicks off, and we’ll be bringing you the details as they happen.
As part of his Joe Paterno eulogy, Phil Knight recounts a discussion he had with Apple CEO Tim Cook regarding the death of Steve Jobs. It's a candid glimpse into the friendship shared by Cook and Jobs.
We could be wrong, but today's Apple Q1 2012 earnings call may have been the first time that the company has revealed any tangible sales figures for the Apple TV. According to CEO Tim Cook, Apple sold a record-breaking 1.4 million Apple TV units last quarter, which is exactly half of the 2.8 million units that it sold in the entire prior fiscal year. As expected, Cook wouldn't comment on the rumors of the imminent release of a bona fide Apple TV set. We're sure it's in the pipeline, but don't expect Apple to say anything on the record until it's ready to be shown off to the world.
During its Q1 2012 earnings call where Apple announced a record-breaking holiday quarter, CEO Tim Cook also announced that there are now 85 million iCloud accounts. What's impressive there is that iCloud is just three months old, coming in as a replacement for the aging MobileMe, so that's a tremendously positive number as it pertains to user adoption. In fact, that 85 million number is 50 million more than iPhone 4S units sold.
This afternoon, Apple announced that it has posted a record-breaking holiday quarter for fiscal Q1 2012, led by massive sales of iPhone, iPad, and Mac computers. In a nutshell, the company made a ton of cash, selling over 37 million iPhones, 15,430,000 iPads, 5,200,000 Macs, and 15,400,000 iPods. Full release after the jump.
Apple has missed its own deadline to launch iTunes Match, a service that lets users store their entire music library in the cloud, or the iCloud, for access through any iOS device or computer.
Apple CEO Tim Cook announced the iPhone 4S (see our iPhone 4S review) in early October, and iOS 5 and iCloud went live several days later. The final piece of that puzzle, iTunes Match, was expected to launch at the end of October for $24.99 per year, but here we are on November 2 with no iTunes Match in sight.
With iTunes Match, users can store their entire music library in the cloud, or iCloud, for on-the-go access to your music from any iOS device or computer.
A portion of iTunes in the Cloud went live in June during Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC), while a developer version of iTunes Match was released in late August; Apple even reportedly wiped out developers' Match libraries, fueling speculation that a launch was imminent.
