App Store: Apple puts more frequently Option in the new design
Having the ability to download applications is good, but why choose? This is where the App Store to find us regularly from the home page. Apple has made a few changes to better highlight the applications.
This is explained by the change of manager in charge of the application store. Since December, Eddy Cue gave way to Phil Schiller and the latter asked the teams to evolve the App Store. For years, Apple still showed the same applications on the home screen for about a week. He had to wait until Thursday to see a new wave of applications on the home page.
This frequency has evolved to the point of being more common. It is difficult to speak of a change in everyday life, but teams that run the App Store will bring a little more work to regularly offer new applications. This allows users to discover new without waiting a week each time.
In a tweet, Phil Schiller confirmed the change, considering that the App Store "is a place we all want to visit every day." He added that there are other planned changes, but he said nothing over for now.
