Future App Store updates include app bundles, beta testing

updated 03:13 pm EDT, Mon June 2, 2014

TestFlight beta testing app incorporated as part of App Store changes

Apple revealed a number of changes to the App Store at the WWDC keynote, with a few major additions aimed at developers and publishers. Apps can now be grouped into bundles, allowing for apps under the same brand or genre to be sold together at a discount, while TestFlight, a separate app until Apple bought out developer Burstly that has now been incorporated into the App store, will allow developers to pass their apps to potential users for beta testing at no charge to either party.



Users will see a new explore tab and trending searches in the App Store in the future, with search results displayed in a continuous scrolling list. A new "Editor's Choice" logo will also be included as well as short app preview videos on the app profile pages, allowing developers to showcase the game or app without installing it.

Apple plans to make the App Store updates available to users in the fall, alongside iOS 8.
