Previous year also saw Apple unveil a redesigned App Store with the release of iOS 11 in September.
Indeed, $300 million came in on New Year's Day alone, presumably as everyone made unwise in-app purchases to get through their hangovers. "In 2017 alone, iOS developers earned $26.5 billion - more than a 30 per cent increase over 2016", said Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing in a press statement.
Apple also notes there are now almost 2000 ARKit-enabled apps across all categories of the App Store, while the latter now sees over 500 million customer visits every week.
In December, Pokémon Go went to the top of the App Store charts after receiving an update which included part of the game being built around Apple's ARKit framework which provides a more detailed and realistic gameplay.
With the arrival of the iPhone X and all the new features that come with it, including the TrueDepth camera and the augmented reality technology that Apple is investing in, it only makes sense that it would want to make the jobs of developers as easy as possible. The App Store's new Today, Games and Apps tabs showcased breakout hits in 2017, including Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, Monument Valley 2, King of Glory, Calm and Affinity Photo. They added that iOS developers have earned over US$86 billion (about RM348.3 billion) since the App Store was first introduced in July 2008. Other popular apps installed often previous year were meditation app Calm, video editor Enlight Videoleap, password manager 1Password and streaming video provider Hulu. Apple's acquisition of the startup could lead to vastly improved workflows for developers making apps for iOS devices.
