Consumers Spent Billions On Apple Inc. (AAPL) App Store This Holiday Season

"We're excited to share that the Buddybuild team has joined the Xcode engineering group at Apple to build incredible developer tools for the entire iOS community".

Following the accusation, Buddybuild will stop accepting new customers from 1 March while all the existing customers will continue to enjoy the services uninterrupted.

Unusually for an Apple acquisition deal, both companies confirmed the deal. "We've always been proud to be a Canadian company, so we're also pleased that we will be staying right here in Vancouver - a hotbed of developer and engineering talent", the team wrote on its announcement blog post. Buddybuild is an app tools startup which focuses not only on continuous integration and debugging tools but also app development.

"For iOS developers, Buddybuild can take care of all the work associated with code signing, and managing provisioning profiles for you".

The startup's system will fit nicely into the set of tools of Apple, which brings more methods to test, debug and deploy mobile apps via a proprietary channel. Apple similarly discontinued Android compatibility when it acquired TestFlight, effectively removing a key development tool from Google's ecosystem. Late yesterday Apple revealed that App Store customers around the world made apps and games a bigger part of their holiday season in 2017 than ever before, culminating in $300 million in purchases made on New Year's Day 2018.

Hospitals are turning flu patients away
Thanks to a phenomenon called "genetic drift", the flu virus of this year is never the same as the flu virus of last year. Cardiff and Vale health board said it had also seen an increase in patients with flu and respiratory conditions.

With this acquisition, developers will find it easier to develop and iterate their apps for iOS. However, they still generate more revenue from apps than Android. Apps are a battleground for Apple, Google, and other smartphone makers. In 2014, Apple acquired TestFlight which began to require users to employ Xcode to utilise the service.

Apple's CEO Tim Cook loves to tell analysts during their quarterly financial calls that Apple's services is a huge new force at Apple.

Buddybuild was founded in 2015 by former Amazon employees Dennis Pilarinos and Christopher Stott.

As Apple acquires BuddyBuild, it is not just looking to expand on greener pastures like coming up with its first scripted television series but also keeping a strong hold on what they are known for! During its three years of existence, it raised around $8.8 million.
