Skype is still missing… Apple paid 2.5 billion to developers and earned about a billion with it as well. 225 million iTunes account have a credit card registered.

The new iOS 5 will be available to consumers this autumn, though developers will get early access as usual. In total, 1,500 new API’s have been added.
