China has hit an industry record with the highest revenue quarter the Apple App Store has ever seen, according to a report from App Annie, a analytics services and market intelligence company.
“This past quarter was full of game-changing apps and unprecedented growth in revenue for iOS,” Lexi Sydow writes for App Annie. “ China shattered iOS revenue records with the highest reported this quarter to date for any country. China also not only maintained its spot as #1 for Games (which it earned last quarter), it is now the largest market in the world for iOS App Store revenue, earning a record $1.7 billion.”
Now leading the United States by over 15%, China’s growth is projected to climb further by 2020. To get the full report on China’s dominance in the App Store this quarter and other key trends, download the App Annie Index: Market Q3 2016.
