Apple’s SVP of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller has tweeted that November has set an all-time record for App Store sales.

Schiller didn’t give any numbers for either sales or downloads.

The holiday season usually sees the highest sales of the year, Apple announcing back in January that it had achieved more than $1.1B sales in just two weeks, the largest holiday app revenue achieved to date. With app sales showing no sign of slowing, it’s likely that we’ll see a similar announcement in the new year.

Data from App Annie suggests that global mobile app revenue will hit $50B this year, and $101B by 2020. 

Apple yesterday shared its annual ‘Best of‘  lists highlighting top apps, movies, music, TV and more of 2016. Photo editing app Prisma was named iPhone App of the Year.
