According to a new App Annie report, the move to larger-screened iPhones has led to China becoming Apple's most important market. The impact that China has had on App Store revenues in the region since the launch of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus last year has been quite evident in that China has easily led all countries in absolute growth in the third quarter of this year versus the prior quarter, in terms of both iOS app downloads and revenue.

Meanwhile, Google Play still leads in sheer number of downloads thanks to growth in emerging markets like India and Southeast Asia, though iOS is still tops when it comes to revenue. App Annie clocks it 80% than Google Play in Q3, up from 70% in Q2. That shouldn't come as much of a surprise considering that Apple vacuum's up 90% of the profits in smartphone hardware.
