    Great news for Apple, but what made July so special? Was there any Stand out apps?

  • Could be just based on the current number of iOS users. Looks like this ‘tidbit’ of exclusive info was provided to CNBC to grab some headlines. ‘Coincidentally’ afterwards, Re/code reported the iPhone 6 event was set to take place on Sept. 9.

    Heh, good point Gary. Always the source of information (iPhone specific) we can count on. A little self promotion? Why can’t companies give themselves a pat on the back eh? Lol.. 😉
