Apple says now sold well over 800 million mobile devices
SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Apple Inc (AAPL.O) Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook, opening the iPhone maker's annual developers' conference on Monday, said the iPhone maker has sold more than 800 million mobile devices.
Some 130 million customers bought their first Apple mobile device in the past 12 months, Cook said.
Developers converged on the Moscone Center in downtown San Francisco to watch Cook and his lieutenants outline the latest tweaks and features new to its Macintosh computer and iOS mobile operating software.
On Monday, Apple described how its latest "Yosemite" Mac software, which comes on the heels of its well-reviewed "Mavericks" release, will come with a new Internet storage application, and allow users to pick up calls and see text messages relayed to iPhones.
Computer users would also be able to call up maps, search for information or look up documents by typing directly onto their home screens.
