    I could be wrong, but I don't think such numbers have ever been released. They'd naturally have to come from Apple and we know that they don't like to release information very often.

    You'll never find actual numbers, but next best thing is to find a developer who reports the numbers based on his or her app or service.

    Marco Arment (who makes Instapaper) sometimes blogs about the numbers he sees:

    But remember, these are the numbers of Instapaper users, not iOS users. So it's not perfect. But it's something. Also, that's a bit old now, but bookmark his blog and keep checking. It's possible he'll post an update sometime soon now that the new iPad is out.
