China has overtaken Japan concerning revenue taken from iPhone and iPad apps per year, to take second position behind the United States. Since January, China has seen a 220% increase in year-on-year growth, to take it into second place. App Annie, who gathered this information for the first quarter of 2016, has said that this increase is due to China’s huge number of smartphone owners, and the popularity of Apple’s big screen iPhone 6 models in the country. The report comes after the country overtook the US for the total number of app downloads last year, making China Apple’s fastest growing market in the top three. The 30% lead the US has over China for the moment is said to be due to American users being more willing to pay for service apps, such as Netflix, as well as making in-app purchases.
