  • Apple users have downloaded apps from the App Store more than 140 billion times.
  • App Store downloads are up 106 percent in the last two months, likely due to Pokémon Go.

  • The Apple Watch 2 is now water-resistant, and there will be more health features in watchOS 3. It's also getting Pokémon Go.
  • The company is releasing iOS 10 and watchOS 3 on Sept. 13; macOS Sierra will launch Sept. 20.
