Last year, Apple said December 2016 was the App Store's biggest month ever, bringing in $3 billion in revenue; this year, it doesn't seem to have broken out the monthly data for December (though we've asked for it).

Moreover, integration of machine learning with Core ML in building apps is also attracting developers to the platform.

"We've always been proud to be a Canadian company", the post read.

Following the acquisition, the startup will be rolled into Xcode, Apple's suite of dev tools for iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS, although Apple and Buddybuild have not given a specific timeline of when that will happen.

As stated on its official website, Buddybuild essentially helps in faster and efficient development of IOS apps. As a result of the revamp, Apple began to curate some of the apps featured on its App Store, changing the formula for app store optimization.

Both companies' app stores, however, pointed at the holidays' true victor: Amazon. Combined, both iOS and Google Play generated $17 billion in revenues for Q3 2017, up 28% from the previous year, the report stated. Out of that number, Apple's share was around $11 billion. Thus, it just makes sense that Apple wants to ensure that its platform and apps remain developer-friendly.

The company is made up of former employees of Amazon and has been running since 2015. It allows IOS app developers to run a UI & beta test and simultaneously offers a secure environment to build a proficient app.

This acquisition is similar to the move of Apple when it acquired TestFlight in 2014. Those app developers on Android will no longer be able to access Buddybuild beginning in March 2018. Within three years since its birth, the startup has managed to make a profit of around $8.8 million. Its list of existing customers is impressive as it includes Mozilla, Hootsuite, Reddit and The New York Times.
