As reported CNBC the figure would have been a true record for the app store of the company run by Tim Cook. Nothing less than 64,000 million dollars would have generated during the past year the Apple App Store .

This figure represents an increase of 28% compared to 2019, the year in which the revenue of the app store increased by 3% compared to 2018, so we are talking about multiplying by ten the growth of the previous year, so the trend would be the following:

  • 2018: $ 48.5 billion
  • 2019: $ 50 billion
  • 2020: $ 64 billion
Breaking down twelve-year income

We do not have a breakdown of all those revenues from the App Store since Apple does not differentiate by areas of but rather offers a total figure corresponding to Services that encompasses everything.

From the data offered in September 2020 (when Apple’s fiscal year ends) of 53.7 billion in revenues from Services, CNBC has made an approximate calculation. In January 2020, Apple announced that it had paid developers $ 200 billion since 2008 . This is an increase of 45 billion since then to the figure just announced by Apple.

Taking this difference into account, the estimate corresponds to 70% of App Store sales, thus obtaining this figure of $ 64,000 million in revenue from apps during 2020 .

The source of income

Let’s remember that Apple’s revenue from the App Store corresponds to the 30% it charges developers, except for those who generate less than a million dollars with their apps, to whom it only charges 15% of your income.
