Ahead of WWDC, Apple Announces Huge App Store Sales, Commissions

Non-developers can now use updated WWDC app without a registered account

Developers have created apps for various categories and for customers in 155 countries.

According to Isaacson, 'Jobs at first quashed the discussion, partly because he felt his team did not have the bandwidth to figure out all the complexities that would be involved in policing third-party app developers'. Downloads from the App Store have also increased, growing 70 percent in 12 months. The statistic casts doubt on the reports of "app fatigue", a phenomenon that is widely thought to be spreading through the smartphone population.

The statement gave no other details of the incident. "The man was subdued and a safety plan was enacted", said the statement. The story Flight returns to Melbourne after passenger tried to enter cockpit first appeared on The Sydney Morning Herald .

Apple also pushed back against that notion that apps have peaked and that people aren't downloading as many as the used to.

Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice-president of Worldwide Marketing said, "Seventy billion dollars earned by developers is simply mind-blowing". The company announced it has passed $70 billion in developer payouts, up from $50 billion a year ago (after taking its commission). "We are amazed at all of the great new apps our developers create and can't wait to see them again next week at our Worldwide Developers Conference". This has included adding carrier billing, where you can charge an app payment to your phone bill, or link it with your pre-pay credits - especially important to make headway in markets where credit card penetration is lower. The active paid subscriptions are up 58% year over year. Photo and video apps have seen their revenue climb 90% over last year, while Lifestyle and Health apps have seen their gross rise 70% year-over-year. It highlights the continued demand for social media apps and photo filtering utilities.

Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference starts next week. This will include the unveiling of iOS 11, macOS 10.13, watchOS 4 and tvOS 11.

Customers over the years have come across some wonderful app hits like Pokémon GO and Super Mario Run. Looking out to 2020, Apple believes its services business can grow to twice the size it was at the end of 2016 - and Apple's going to need App Store revenue to continue growing nicely for this to happen. It will announce the next steps in the store's development when it takes to the stage in San Jose, California, next week.
