A study conducted by Analysis Group, a consulting company with support from Apple, indicates that App Store increased sales to $ 519 billion last year.
Applications for the purchase of clothing, food, transport and travel sharing brought in $ 413 billion. Another $ 45 billion came from advertising in apps, and $ 61 billion came from selling content in apps.
In difficult and unstable times, the App Store offers great opportunities for entrepreneurship, health and well-being, education and job creation, helping people quickly adapt to a changing world.

The study also noted that the coronavirus pandemic led to increased spending on games, prompted buyers to watch more videos and use social media applications, and also led to a “massive increase” in food and food delivery applications.
Apple previously stated that in 2019, it has paid more than $ 155 billion to developers since the launch of the App Store in 2008.
