Apple CEO, Tim Cook, has revealed that the China specific version of the App Store has made developers more than £12.6bn. This equates to around a quarter of App Store sales globally.
Cook revealed the data yesterday while he was giving a speech to China’s top public cyber policy forum.
China’s population of almost 1.4bn people means that, while rival handset makers have stolen sales and market share from the iPhone over the last few years, Apple counts China as its third largest sales market.
Such is the size of the population, China's biggest social media company - Tencen - overtook Facebook in value last month. It is worth £378bn - with 500 million people using its WeChat messaging app.
