Apple has sold 84 million iPads; almost all Fortune 500 companies are deploying/testing the tablet

The iPhone 5 may have been the focus of all the attention at Apple’s press event in San Francisco yesterday, but CEO Tim Cook also announced a number of fascinating stats on the iPad.

Prior to introducing the latest iPhone, Cook took to the stage to claim that his firm has sold a mega 84 million iPads to date, giving the Cupertino giant a market share of 68%. Steve Jobs’ successor added that the iPad had a tablet market share of 62% at this point last year.

Cook said that 94% of Fortune 500 companies are either testing or deploying iPads, and went onto reveal that the Mac giant sold 17 million iPads between April and June – which is supposedly more than any PC manufacturer sold of their entire PC range.

Here’s a round-up of some of the other stats revealed at the iPhone 5 event:

  • The iPad is responsible for 91% of tablet web traffic
  • There are 700,000 apps on iTunes, 250,000 of which are iPad-specific
  • Apple had sold 400 million  iOS devices by the end of June
  • There are currently 380 Apple Stores in 12 countries (Note: this will rise to 13 on Friday, when Apple launched a new store in Sweden)
  • Apple has sold 350 million iPods
