Apple keeps 30% of the revenue generated by paid apps purchased in the App Store, leaving 70% for developers. After all, not even the financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed yet. Back in 2014, Apple acquired Burstly, which made TestFlight, a popular beta testing platform. Since its establishment, the startup has managed to raise around $8.8 million.
