App Store Expedites $643 Billion In Commerce With A Growth of 24% Noted In The Ecosystem, According to Analysts in the Recent Apple Study

Apple promotes a study on the subject of app store ecosystem claiming to have added around $648 to the commerce with a 24% upturn since last year through minor subsidiaries.

Ever since Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers questioned Apple in the antitrust trial for the trending ‘Epic games vs. Apple’ affair, Apple has been striving to prove that it's not just a money-plucking factory but a source of income and trust for many.

Apple's recent claims about contributing more than just software sales have been duly justified in the new Apple study named as the global perspective on the App Store ecosystem. The study emphasizes how Apple managed to produce 24% growth over the previous year in 2020.

While people are stuck inside due to the ongoing pandemic, Apple seems to have hit the peak with the increase in online pursuits. According to the analysis group conducting the study, the company has made huge turnouts in 2020 is not just a single area but through various direct and indirect transactions.

Indirect transactions like revenue from physical goods or medicines being sold through online delivery services or pickup services have reportedly produced $511 Billion, seemingly the category grew 24% over the year. Since online shopping appears to be the trend of the decade, Apple earned a hefty amount through general retail, grocery, and food delivering services along with online shopping sites as these ventures soared higher than before.

The pandemic also caused some of the sectors to decline. For instance, the travel sector, seeing how the tourism plunged due to lack of mobility, decreased by 30%.

Apple went ahead to identify the revenue generated by goods sold outside the app store but on Apple devices like iPads or iPhones including eBooks that were a good $86 billion. These purchases went up by 41% in 2020. The in-app advertisements also had a lot to add as those increased by 24% and capital of $48 billion was noted.

Lastly, the company went ahead to mention how during the pandemic and otherwise, a small software that managed only around a million downloads per annum, when combined, flourished showing an increase by 40%. The earnings tripled by those earned from 2015 to 2020.

Showcasing these numbers is just an attempt to get the judge to make significant changes to the app store, but of course good ones. If the app store is a force for good or a capital-making machine, the question is left to your judgment and of course Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers' in her upcoming ruling.
