An extra 33 countries now have access to the Apple App Store, allowing more users from around the world to download and buy apps for iPhone and iPad, according to
technology site Engadget.
This brings the number of countries that can access the App Store to 123 in total, and comes as Apple recently announced
that over 15 billion apps, including many games, have been downloaded across 200 million iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users.
The 33 new countries that can now use the App Store are as follows: Algeria, Angola, Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Azerbaijan, Bahamas, Bahrain, Barbados, Belarus, Belize, Bermuda, Bolivia, British Virgin Islands, Brunei, Cayman Islands, Cyprus, Dominica, Ghana, Grenada, Guyana, Iceland, Montserrat, Nigeria, Oman, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and The Grenadines, Suriname, Tanzania, Trinidad and Tobago, Turks and Caicos, Uzbekistan and Yemen.
Last month, 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 in total.
In terms of which apps are making the most revenue, reports indicated that
free-to-play titles brought in nearly two-thirds of all game revenue in June, a turnaround from a market dominated by pay-to-download games in January.
