Apple App Store Developers Made $84 Billion In Revenue Last Year

Apple claims that app developers earned A$84 billion in revenue last year.

The company released a summary of its digital services overnight, reporting that developers have generated over A$362 billion since the App Store first launched in 2008.

Last year’s earnings marks a “new yearly record for App Store developer earnings”, with sales between December 24th and 31st rising “in the double digits” compared to the previous period, when it made A$2.5 billion.

“This significant number sets a new yearly record for App Store developer earnings while representing just a small fraction of the overall commerce the App Store facilitates, serving as one meaningful marker of how the ecosystem continues to create opportunities and drive economic expansion for entrepreneurs around the world,” the company wrote, in its annual report.

“2021 brought a slate of blockbuster launches to the App Store, with the world’s leading entertainment companies choosing to premiere marquee movies like “Black Widow” from Disney+ and “Space Jam: A New Legacy” from HBO Max in-app on the same day as their theatrical release.”
