From “UK iOS app economy has a breakthrough year, grows to support 330,000 jobs” posted Monday on the Apple Newsroom
Developers across the UK generated to date more than £3.6 billion [$5 billion] in total earnings — growing 22 percent in 2020 from the previous year. That trend echoed across Europe, where the iOS app economy grew to support 1.7 millions jobs — a 7 percent increase since 2019. The UK leads Europe in iOS app developer jobs, with Germany and France estimated to each host over 250,000 jobs.
My take: The message to European regulators: It would be a shame if something were to happen to the App Store.
