iOS 11, which is the latest version of the iPhone operating system, has been around for a while now and it is full of new wonderful features. But what has changed the most is the App Store. iOS 11 App Store had a major redesign and it now has a totally new user-interface. The App Store is the most important app on your iPhone. it is the beating heart of your entire system. You manage to get all the apps you need from the App Store and it is your only source. Here is what has changed in App Store in iOS 11.
iOS 11 App Store changes
As I mentioned earlier, App Store has been redesigned from top to bottom in iOS 11. Here are some of those changes you may want to know:
App search results
In iOS 10, only two app preview videos or screenshots would appear. Now in the redesigned iOS 11 App Store, users can see three app previews. Also, the video always appears first and it will play automatically, but the sound is muted by default. In addition, the app frame has become smaller and it leaves more space for competitor apps to be viewed in one frame.
All in all, this redesign has made it easier to see ratings and reviews, check out in-app purchases, and watch video previews.
Separate tab for games
If you want to look for every thing game-related on App Store, the game tab is definitely where you need to go. iOS 11 App Store game tab shows picks from editors and what’s trending on the top game charts. Also, if you are looking for an specific app on the App Store, you can use the App tab that includes top picks, app charts, and categories.
Apple has redesigned the App Store to improve the search results for users. Search results now show you tips and tricks, lists, developers, and more which help users to get more information about a particular app or game before they proceed to download it.
The ‘Today’ tab
This new tab on iOS 11 App Store shows what’s new each day. It actually serves as a daily destination for you where you can find upcoming or trending apps or games you might like to download. It includes collections, how-to guides, and world premieres.
In iOS 11 App Store, in-app purchases are now more streamlined. When you make an in-app purchase from within the App Store your device automatically will open the corresponding application.
The promotional text is a new subtitle field that shows the unique qualities of the app in a few words. This can include the latest news about the app or announcements about the new features of the most recent update.
