Announced via an official press release from earlier today, Apple’s App Store brought in $300 million USD on New Year’s Day alone and $890 million USD in the week beginning on Christmas Eve; altogether, that’s over a billion dollars in sales. As Apple reports, the latter figure came to fruition thanks to a “record number” of customers who decided to spend their Christmas cash or download apps from the App Store during that particular week-long period. While other specifics have yet to be made public, the New Year’s Day $300 million USD mark is also billed as a record-breaking day.
