Apple: 2 Billion iMessages Are Sent Every Day
iMessage is Apple’s messaging service that was introduced as a new feature in iOS 5 to iOS devices. It also expanded
to the Mac officially in OS X Mountain Lion, however users had access to a beta version of Messages for Mac while using Mac OS X Lion for a short while.
As a part of Apple's earnings conference
on Wednesday, it was revealed that over two billion
iMessages are sent every day from Apple's devices. This includes iPhones, iPod touches, iPads, and even Mac computers running the latest OS X Mountain Lion operating system with the built-in Messages application.
iMessage took off in popularity because of its iCloud syncing feature and lack of SMS costs for using it. iMessage has a few other advantages too: there’s not a character limit, you can see when the other person is typing, you can send read receipts, and you can send or receive from multiple different e-mails.
I send a number of iMessages each day myself; a proud contributor to the two billion figure. Do you send many iMessages throughout the day?
