During the WWDC 2012 keynote, Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, announced that the App Store would be launching in 32 additional countries this month. That would bring the total number of countries the App Store is available in to 155. As revealed in the country-selection page within the iTunes Store, those 32 new markets are now available. However, Apple has yet to update its support page listing which iTunes Store content is available in which country.
Majority of the new countries are located in Apple’s African and Asian markets, with the exception of Albania and Ukraine in Europe. The full list of new App Store countries includes: Albania, Benin, Bhutan, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Cape Verde, Chad, Republic of the Congo, Fiji, Gambia, Guinea-Bissau, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Liberia, Malawi, Mauritania, Federated States of Micronesia, Mongolia, Mozambique, Namibia, Nepal, Palau, Papua New Guinea, São Tomé and Príncipe, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Solomon Islands, Swaziland, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Zimbabwe.
During the keynote, Cook revealed that the iOS App Store had reached the 3- billion download mark with over $5 billion paid to developers. In addition, there are over 650,000 apps available, 225,000 of which are designed for iPad.
