Apple has summed up the year by naming the most popular apps in the App Store for its operating systems.
All Apple applications are divided into paid and free. Here is a list of popular iPhone apps:
|TikTok||My statistics for VKontakte|
|ZOOM Cloud Meetings||TouchRetouch|
|Telegram||HUD Speed - traffic police radar detector|
|Public services||AutoSleep: Sleep Tracker|
The top is listed in descending order, that is, TikTok and “My statistics for VKontakte” are the most popular applications in these lists.
Also, Apple has featured one app – Wakeout! There are collected simple exercises for those who work and study from home.
And here are the most popular games for the iPhone:
|Among Us||Plague Inc.|
|PUBG Mobile: Metro Royale||Earn to die 2|
|Brawl stars||Doodle Jump|
|Romance Club – My Stories||Hitman Sniper|
|Subway surfers||RFS – Real Flight Simulator|
|Words of Wonders||Peace, Death!|
|Fool online||Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas|
|Save the girl!||Doodle God|
Interestingly, there is no game at the top that Apple, following Google, named the year’s game. This is Genshin Impact – a charming and entertaining RPG, in which, as I understand it, you don’t have to pay too much for anything.
And here is the same top, but for iPad:
|ZOOM Cloud Meetings||Procreate|
|Messaging for WhatsApp on iPad||Notability|
|VK for iPad||LumaFusion|
|Youtube||Little Kitten – My Cat|
|Telegram||Learning letters is fun!|
|Messenger for WhatsApp Web||Affinity Designer|
|Air calculator||Duet Display|
|Google chrome||Little Kitten – Adventure|
It is especially pleasing that among the applications for creating content like Affinity Photo or LumaFusion, there are apps with the cute name “Little Kitten.”
The long-suffering Zoom is the iPad App of the Year.
And here’s how things are with iPad games:
|Among Us||Plague Inc.|
|Roblox||Earn to die 2|
|Save the girl!||Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas|
|My Talking Tom Friends||RFS – Real Flight Simulator|
|Tiles Hop – EDM Rush||BADLAND|
|My Talking Tom 2||Flash and Wonder Cars Games|
The game that Apple recognized as the year’s game did not make it to the top either. These are Legends of Runeterra:
Also, Apple has named the most popular games in Arcade regardless of platform:
- Oceanhorn 2;
- Skate City;
- Hot Lava;
- SpongeBob: Formula Pursuit;
- Sonic Racing;
- Rayman Mini;
- Sneaky Sasquatch;
- LEGO Brawls.
Sneaky Sasquatch, ranked eighth, was named Arcade Game of the Year by Apple:
The top games on macOS are not named, but the legendary Disco Elysium is the game of the year:
In addition to iPhone, iPad, and Mac, you can also play on Apple TV. And it also has its own game of the year! This is the Dandara Trials of Fear platformer:
By the way, about Apple TV. The set-top box app of the year is, oddly enough, Disney +. It is a streaming video service with an extensive media library of content. A kind of Apple TV + competitor!
Apple also noted the Fantastical organizer, which became the app of the year for macOS:
And Endel for the Apple Watch. This relaxation app:
Apple also celebrates the main trends of the year. So, in 2020, it was impossible not to pay attention to the pandemic. For example, the Shine app helps users take care of their mental health:
And Caribu will be an excellent helper in communicating with people you love:
Pokémon GO is trending as well. Here the fact that the game was set up to play from home played:
The ShareTheMeal application should also be noted. In it, you can donate money to solve global problems:
