Since Apple announced its Q3 2014 earnings last month everyone seems focused on less-than-stellar iPad sales, but along with the impending launch of the iPhone 6, Apple’s got a lot to celebrate as the company told CNBC that the App Store had record-setting revenue numbers in July.
Apple says it saw a record number of customers making transaction on the App Store in July, prompting Tim Cook to launch a celebratory tweet to developers:
Thanks to our amazing developer community! Apple says July was record-setting month for app store revenue http://t.co/BI8wFTTG5V

In a statement to CNBC, Tim Cook said “I couldn’t be happier. This is the best execution of any quarter since I’ve been at Apple,” but not everyone is impressed, including our favorite Apple analysts.
Stating July was a record month for the App Store is not surprising since practically every month since it opened was a record month.
