Apple's Web site now displays a banner that proclaims that the iTunes App Store has more than 15,000 apps and 500 million downloads. This is after only six months of the App Store's operation, so it's a significant milestone for Apple.

Before Christmas last year, Apple announced that the App Store had only 10,000 apps and 300 million downloads.

The new numbers show an amazing increase in downloads from the App Store when compared with the old milestone.

Apple did not break these numbers down by free versus paid apps, but regardless, this is a significant new milestone for Apple.
