Apple likes to celebrate product anniversaries and other big milestones. The upcoming 5th anniversary of the App Store’s existence is no exception, and the company has sent out celebratory posters for the occasion to publications.
Tim Bradshaw of the Financial Times tweeted the above picture earlier today. The App Store doesn’t actually turn five years old until July 10th, so Apple must be trying to raise awareness beforehand.
A number of publications also received promotional materials from Apple when the iTunes Store had its 10th anniversary in April. Apple sent journalists a handful of selected songs to download and also put up an interactive timeline on the iTunes Store.
The App Store reached 50 billion downloads in May, and this lucky guy won a $10,000 iTunes Store gift card.
