The winter holidays proved to be another season of milestones for Apple’s App Store.
Apple on Thursday said App Store purchases topped a record-breaking $3 billion for the month of December*, culminating in a New Year’s Day spike that saw customers spend nearly $240 million in a single day. And this too was a new record; the App Store’s prior biggest sales day ever was Jan. 1, 2016, when customers spent more than $144 million.
