Apple overhauls App Store with iOS 11

Apple has overhauled its App Store, with the addition of a new section with developer interviews and editorial content aimed at promoting the best apps.

The tech giant has also redesigned the entire app market, giving it a cleaner look so that downloading new games and apps is easier than before.

Looking for iPhone 8 news? We've collated all the speculation in our rumours round-up.

The key new feature is the Today tab. This includes videos, articles, reviews and interviews pulled together by Apple’s own App Store team, along with tips and how–to guides.

Apple says the plan is to make customer use apps in innovative ways.

While that remains to be seen, the wider overhaul of the App Store is long overdue, after nine years of the service looking broadly the same.

Games now have a dedicated section, with recommendations, new releases and collections picked by Apple staff.

Apps also get their own tab, while the search tool will also include content from Today as well as a list of apps and games related to your original terms.

Changes to the Updates tab will give more specific information on what’s being added in new versions of apps.

And in–app purchases will be properly detailed on app product pages, meaning additional content can be bought direct from the App Store rather than delving into the app itself.

The redesigned App Store is set to launch as part of iOS 11 later this year.
