Apple's online store, the Apple Store, served its millionth customer last week, the company has announced.

Apple’s executive vice president of worldwide sales and operations Tim Cook said: "Reaching our one millionth customer is a major milestone.

"The Apple Store is a popular way for a growing number of consumers and businesses to buy Apple products, and with extensive build-to-order capabilities, easy 1-Click shopping and free shipping on orders, it’s never been easier to buy a Mac online."

The Apple Store operates in 20 countries and eight languages, and offers Apple’s entire product line of hardware and software plus third-party software and solutions.
