Apple saw a drastic increase in iOS App Store downloads in October, increasing from 5.5 million daily downloads up to 7.8 million downloads month-over-month, according to mobile tracking company Fiksu. The iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 were all released in the fall, and as users upgraded to iOS 8, downloads skyrocketed.

The data covered the top 200 free iOS apps available, and a 42 percent jump compared to September - and 39 percent year-over-year - is a major success for Apple.

 

As of September, there are more than 1.3 million apps in the App Store, with more than 300 million visitors every week.
