The 100,000 mark has been claimed by third parties in the past, but Apple is now toting the figure to its users.
“iPad 2; it does everything like nothing else,” reads Apple’s email. “With iPad 2 and over 100,000 apps made for it, you can do what you love in ways you never imagined.”
The iPad 2 has certainly been a smash hit for the company since being shown off on stage by Steve Jobs in March.
With a host of Android tablets now attempting to wrest market share from Apple, and the tablet friendly Windows 8 on the horizon, the competition is certinaly hotting up.
But the iPad now has a big base of specially designed apps which will remain a key factor in consumers’ buying decisions.
It’s also worth pointing out that this isn’t exactly the Apple announcement we were hoping for.
