Today Apple announced that its App Store has served up more than 100 billion app downloads to date.
Alongside that somewhat meaningless tidbit, Apple shared something quite interesting: It’s paid developers $30 billion so far — that’s approximately $0.30 paid to developers for every app downloaded, if the 100 billion figure is current.
In January, Apple said it paid out $10 billion to developers in 2014 alone.
Apple announced this news during its 2015 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco.
