According to Apple, the latest programming builds on the ongoing resources Apple offers, which enable developers to add new functionalities to their apps easily and quickly, as well as choose from a variety of business models that support developers in building a successful business on the App Store. An extensive suite of free technologies and frameworks -- including software development kits (SDKs) and developer services with more than 250,000 APIs -- support developers building apps for iOS, iPadOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS.
According to the company, developers can also access more than 40 Apple software development kits that let them harness the power of machine learning, augmented reality, and other cutting-edge technologies, as well as over 170,000 free technical documents and sample code to help them build, test and distribute apps. On average, Apple’s dedicated App Review team carefully looks at over 100,000 app submissions a week, with over 90 percent of them receiving a review within 24 hours. In 2022, App Review helped more than 185,000 developers publish their very first app on the App Store. According to Apple, these investments have helped its developer community continue to reach new heights as developers generated $1.1 trillion in total billings and sales in the App Store ecosystem in 2022, more than 90 percent of which accrued solely to developers, without any commission paid to Apple.
