Developers earn $17b from China App Store
    2017-December-5  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

APPLE Inc.’s chief executive Tim Cook said developers using its platform in China number 1.8 million and have earned a total 112 billion yuan (US$16.93 billion), representing roughly a quarter of total global App Store earnings.

Cook shared the data Sunday during a speech at the Fourth World Internet Conference, China’s top public cyber forum.

Earlier this year, Apple said that developers had earned roughly US$70 billion in total revenue through the store.

Apple counts China as its third-largest region by sales but has lost market share in recent years as high-end handsets from local rivals continue to vie for users. The firm is hoping to regain momentum following the release of its iPhone 8 and iPhone X models, which shipped in November.

The U.S. tech giant said earlier it had moved its Chinese cloud data onto the servers of a local partner in Guizhou Province.

Cook has come to China several times this year, including an October visit where he was among executives that met with President Xi Jinping.

Cook’s attendance is conspicuous at the conference, marking the first high-level executive to attend in the event’s four-year history. Others included Google chief executive Sundar Pichai, who is also attending the conference for the first time.(SD-Agencies)
