Warren said that the number from the report makes complete sense as we look at the number of apps that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s app store has in it.

“It makes sense if you think about how many apps are out there and how it has become such a huge part of how people get around today, especially when it comes to games and app purchases. So many sectors have apps now. There are ton of free apps, but there is ton of paid apps and people love them and I don’t think that it’s that crazy,” Warren said.

Out of the $20 billion revenue that will be generated by Apple Inc.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) also holds the record for highest revenue generation from a quarter. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) generated around $18 billion revenues during the last quarter of 2014, which was mainly due to the incredible iPhone 6 sales.

Warren said that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) also has information of around half a billion credit cards through their app stores, which is just an add on. She suggested that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) could use this information as the credit card details are already there in Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) ecosystem, which will simplify the job for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) when it comes to Apple Pay and Apple TV.
