Morgan Stanley pointed to new research from app data tracking firm Sensor Tower, which shows that August App Store revenue saw the strongest year-over-year growth since February 2018 and the largest month-over-month acceleration since early 2015.

Sensor Tower data shows App Store revenue growth accelerating 28% year over year in the month of August, a meaningful uptick from July, when it saw revenue growth of 18.9% year over year.
