The holiday season was good to Apple.

appstore-infograph1The iPhone maker today announced the App Store’s most successful holiday season to-date — and that success carried over on to New Year’s Day, its busiest single day ever: $240 million in purchases.

It was a year, Apple said, of “unprecedented developer earnings and breakout app hits” with developers earning more than $20 billion last year, an increase of more than 40 percent from 2015.

“2016 was a record-shattering year for the App Store, generating $20 billion for developers, and 2017 is off to a great start with January 1 as the single biggest day ever on the App Store,” Apple worldwide marketing senior vice-president Philip Schiller. “We want to thank our entire developer community for the many innovative apps they have created — which together with our products — help to truly enrich people’s lives.”

The holiday season for 2016 topped $3 billion. In the same month, December, Nintendo’s Super Mario Run “made history” with more than 40 million downloads within four days of its release. It was the most downloaded app worldwide on Christmas and New Year’s Day.
