Apple has told CNBC that its App Store set record revenue numbers this July. The App Store also reportedly had a record amount of customers making transactions in the same month. It’s an interesting release of information — the company doesn’t usually make a point of publicizing specific monthly sales — with curious timing, considering the almost-simultaneous report of a new iPhone event having been scheduled for September 9. In another unusual twist, Apple CEO Tim Cook then tweeted about the news, linking to the CNBC story.
