Apple's operation is showing no signs of slowing down.

Keep track of what else Apple is announcing at our WWDC keynote live blog.

At his company's Worldwide Developers Conference keynote today, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced that the Cupertino, Calif.-based firm has 400 million App Store accounts. In addition, the company has 650,000 apps in its App Store, and users have downloaded 30 billion apps so far. All that has helped Apple dole out $5 billion to developers since the marketplace's inception.

Back in March, Apple announced that its App Store had reached 25 billion downloads .

The Worldwide Developers Conference is one of the most closely watched Apple events of the year. Although its focus is on Apple software and the programs developers create for the company's operating system, it's also been the stage for some major hardware announcements. So stay tuned.
