Apple on Friday said 300 million iPhone apps have been downloaded from its App Store since it opened in July.

The news comes in the form of two ads placed in the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times.

The ads highlight some of the applications available for the iPhone, but the print on the bottom of the ads reveal some new, previously unreleased, information.

In addition to the 300 million apps download, Apple also confirms that the App Store also passed the 10,000 app mark in the store.

The App Store opened almost five months ago on July 11, 2008 with 500 apps available for download. As of the last earnings announcement, Apple reported 200 million downloads of its then 5,500 apps.
