A frequently referred statistic is that the Apple App Store earns twice as much money as the Google Play Store, although the Play Store is far larger and suitable for far more customers.
It seems that dichotomy is expanding beyond just basic sales and in the first success. According to the App Intelligence Firm Sensor Tower (via TechCrunch ), the number of app publishers who had their first million dollar success in 2018 was halved on the Play Store over the App Store.
According to the Sensor Tower, 88 publishers this year made their first $ 1 million on the Google Play store, while there were 164 such developers on Apple's App Store in the same time period.  These new figures are very good with last year's figures as well. Check out the chart below:
Although it seems that Apple always has the money management money earned from its app store, it should be noted that Google is making faster gains . The Apple App Store had $ 143 million developers last year, a figure that grew by 15 percent this year. Meanwhile, the Google Play store has grown by 24 percent this year from its 71 million dollar publishers in 2017. It's not a big difference, but it is.
Most publishers earned their first million this year made games, naturally. However, the games do not dominate the list so much in 2018 as in 2017, when apps in the categories Lifestyle and Health made some big gains.
Regardless of these numbers, both app stores do better than ever. The two stores hit 113 billion combined downloads this year, with $ 76 billion in spending – and the year is not even completely finished yet.
