At its Worldwide Developers Conference today, Apple revealed that it has sold more than 200 million iOS devices, and that consumers have downloaded more than 14 billion apps from its App Store. The company claims iOS controls over 44 percent of the mobile and tablet operating system market, compared to the 28 percent held by Google's Android platform, 19 percent retained by Blackberry maker RIM, and 9 percent by other OSes. Since the digital distribution platform launched for iOS devices in July 2008, the App Store has stocked up some 425,000 games and apps on its shelves -- 90,000 of which are for the iPad. Apple says it's paid developers on the platform over $2.5 billion from purchases. The Cupertino-headquartered firm also claimed that its Mac App Store is the top PC software channel, beating out shops like Bet Buy and Walmart. Meanwhile, its desktop and notebook sales grew 28 percent year-over-year -- compared to the PC market shrinking by 1 percent -- to 54 million Mac users.
