Hol­i­day pe­riod breaks all-time App Store records

iCreate - - #TRENDING -

Cus­tomers spent nearly $1 bil­lion on App Store pur­chases in the week be­tween Christ­mas Eve and New Year’s Day 2017, smash­ing all-time records in the process. The record-break­ing shop­ping spree, which to­talled $890, cul­mi­nated in an eye-wa­ter­ing $300 mil­lion cashed in on New Year’s Day 2018.

“We are thrilled with the re­ac­tion to the new App Store and to see so many cus­tomers dis­cov­er­ing and en­joy­ing new apps and games,” says Phil Schiller, Ap­ple’s se­nior vice pres­i­dent of World­wide Mar­ket­ing.

“In 2017 alone, IOS de­vel­op­ers earned $26.5 bil­lion — more than a 30 per cent in­crease over 2016.”

Poke­mon GO was the fes­tive pe­riod’s big mover, head­ing back to the top of the App Store charts after new AR fea­tures were added to the app.
