Today, Apple announced its best quarter ever and its share price soared past $450 in the after hours. In addition, Apple also revealed some interesting numbers during their financial conference call. A little over three months ago, Apple launched iCloud. The company announced that over 85 million users are syncing their devices through iCloud. This comes from Peter Oppenheimer, Apple’s Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, during today’s Q1 2012 financial earnings call.

It goes to show that the growth rate is incredible and eclipses the total number of iOS devices sold during the same time frame. During that time frame, 64 million iOS devices were sold! In fact, that’s also more users Dropbox reported in late 2011. I remember, when the service first launched, people said nobody would use it, but look who’s talking now!

iCloud is a free service that stores all your content and seamlessly syncs it across all your devices. It replaced the company’s predecessor paid subscription service called MobileMe with a more seamless and free service. The service being offered for free would probably explain the tremendous growth iCloud is seeing.
