When you think of games, your thoughts will likely go to game consoles and the games that were released for them. A lot of money is earned through games. However, it seems that Apple is the third smiling.

It earns more from games than well-known names such as Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft and Activision Blizzard combined. In 2019, it would have generated a turnover of about $8.5 billion. If you compare it with the above companies, then their turnover has reached about 2 billion dollars. It’s still a lot of money, but it’s a lot less than the Cupertino company does. It must be said that an analysis was done at Microsoft, since this company does not indicate exactly how much is earned from the gaming division.
However, Apple is the company that does the most in gaming, when in fact they don’t publish any games themselves. This is probably the main reason why Apple corridor chest. The company has seen how much money is being made, and by launching such a service, you keep your customers for longer. A lot of money is collected this way.
The App Store was a hit anyway
