The distribution of iPhone has a positive social impact on the sales of the phone’s app, which benefits the US econmy. Because iPhone is being distributed around the world and it is welcomed by men and women in all ages, 50% of iPhone users buy at least one paid app per month, which generates more than 10 billion of revenue for the Apple. On the contrary, only 21% of Android users do so in a monthly basis. Also, the popularity of the iPhone apps creates more than 300,000 jobs. Different from the jobs in iPhone’s manufacture process, the iOS app jobs are taken by professional engineers, who are highly skilled in computer engineering. The jobs are not very stable but once the engineer designs a popular app, he or she would earn a lot of money. Those jobs also benefits the US economy to a large extent.
