Take Your Business Out Of The Dark With Daylite

The Numbers From Apple’s WWDC 2014 Keynote

Apple CEO Tim Cook walked on stage today and kicked off the company’s 25th Worldwide Developers Conference with his usual opening remarks and “state of the business” facts and numbers. From the number of attendees to iOS devices sold and OS X stats, these numbers are interesting as they’re typically shared throughout the year in dedicated events or press releases; at WWDC, Apple can provide a mid-year overview before switching gears to talk about iOS or OS X.

We’ve compiled the most important numbers from Apple’s WWDC 2014 keynote below.
